Can You Pull off Shorts At Work?

Optimized-P1060030Optimized-P1060025Optimized-P1060026You bet! There is a way to wear shorts to a work day – it may not be the obvious choice but it is a summer option, as long as you differentiate the look from your casual go-to weekend shorts. Instead, pair them with sturdy, solid pieces, so that the look is polished and professional.

I gave these Alice & Olivia shorts new life when I styled them for the office. I stepped out of my comfort zone with this look but isn’t that what fashion is about?

What NOT to wear …

There's no flip-flopping in Jury Duty!

… to Jury Duty. I have Jury Duty today. Excused yesterday, no excuses today. This is the first time I will have served on Jury Duty; quite remarkable, really, considering that I am 53 years old. And so, the question becomes, what to wear, or rather, what NOT to wear. Here is the list to avoid: shorts, mini skirts, cut-off jeans, t-shirts, flip flops/sandals, tank tops and low-cut shirts. Jury Duty is the time to blend in. I will do my best to do that today. Fashion tomorrow!
