I used to work in a big corporate office. Everyday besides Friday was business casual. When I moved to my much smaller office, with only one other team member, I kept showing up in my business casual attire. Since I have a strong distaste for dress pants, every day was a skirt or dress. That was fine and dandy until it became freezing and I had to wear tights all the time. Recently, my team member and I decided to put into place “Casual Everyday.” What is the point in getting all dressed up just for each other? I am really enjoying wearing jeans to work on a Tuesday. It’s the little things.
I have been spending my days lazily, in bathing suits and cover ups, lounging on the beach and sipping margaritas by the pool. I honestly can’t think of a better way to round out the summer. No responsibility, no reason to get dressed up. This really is the life. We had dinner and played putt-putt tonight, which required some “real” clothes. I chose another easy summer staple. I’m definitely not going to be ready for business casual when next Monday rolls around.

I have definitely been forcing it with my wardrobe during these last days of summer; wearing cardigans over long sleeved tops and trying to pair scarves with just about anything. These past few days have been amazing, though! Low humidity, cooler at night, my kind of weather! How excited am I that I can wear jeans AND boots at the same time and not be hot!? Pretty darn excited, I tell ya. Now if only it was cool enough to start wearing sweaters…
