Getting dressed for the office when it is a million degrees outside can be overwhelming at times. I don’t know how the weather is in your neck of the woods, but here in Salt Lake City by 9 am it’s in the 80’s. The other day I was getting dressed in a hurry and slipped my legs into a pair of black and navy tuxedo pants. I walked across my bedroom to the floor length mirror and by the time I got there, I felt hot. I was like, “No way in hell am I wearing these pants today.” I quickly stripped down and threw the pants onto my bed.
The search for something cooler had begun. I slid my hand passed all my maxi dresses wishing I could wear a strappy floor length dress to the office. My hand traveled through the sea of dresses and stopped in the middle of skirt island. I love skirts in the summertime. I went for this black pencil skirt.
Along with skirts, I do think shorts are completely appropriate for the office this time of year. With that said, you have to be careful with shorts. You can find all my hints on wearing shorts to the office in my article, Shorts in the Office Say What?
I hope you are enjoying your summer and staying cool in this heat.
