Orange Shorts ASOS | Stripe T-shirt H&M | Fox Tail, Bag & Sunglasses eBay| Shoes Jeffrey Campbell
I started my summer job last month, as you can tell by the lack of posts, and I've been encouraged to wear "appropriate" outfits, daily. I work in an office, so the dress code consists of dress pants, dark wash denim, empire waist dresses, button down shirts, cardigans; pretty much the regular boring business casual code. It's no where near strict, but because we are a company that deals with children and parents, we need to come off somewhat presentable.
I made it my goal to make the clothing I wear outside of work, work appropriate. I thought I'd bring some color to my boring beige cubical today with these bright orange linen shorts from ASOS. I'm sure half of my coworkers thought I was crazy, but I received quite a few complements from staff, supervisors, and a few parents passing through.
Also, stripes & shorts has pretty much become my go-to summer outfit. It's a major improvement from my regular hot-summer-day look: A white t-shirt, denim shorts, hair in a bun & flip flops!
