A Matter of Comfort...

I was walking behind this woman the other morning.  I assume she was on her way to work as it was morning rush hour. 

Note the conservative skirt and jacket, gym shoes, leather bag and separate tote.  This seems to be the uniform for many a working woman (at least with office jobs) in NYC.  I've seen versions of this very outfit everywhere and the sneakers with the skirts always get me.  Granted, NYC is a pedestrian city so I fully understand the need for comfortable shoes but really?  Gym shoes with office attire?  Luckily, (or unluckily) I work with children and can dress fairly casually but in previous admin jobs I preferred flats over sneakers when wearing such skirts.  They could surely fit in ONE of the bags in the pic! 

What are your thoughts?  I'm curious: Is it ever ok to pair gym shoes with office wear?  And what on EARTH do people carry in that second bag that doesn't fit in their first bag??
