Workwear Wednesday

Okay so admittedly my working wardrobe has become pretty relaxed in the past week since it's as hot as the depths of hell and twice as humid.  It's pretty much wear whatever you'll sweat the least in.  But the heatwave is supposed to break by Sunday so it'll be back to sittin' pretty in actual grown-up attire.  Still it's summer so I'd like to focus on clothes that you could actually wear when it's 80 degrees out!  I'm talkin' sleeveless and not a pair of long pants in sight!

Let's dissect this outfit shall we?  This shorts/tank combo works for several reasons.  1) Chose shorts with an inseam no shorter than 4 inches, preferably 6 inches.  2)These are nicely tailored shorts with no frayed edges or distressing.  3)Although it's a tank, it isn't revealing or skin tight.  The higher neckline balances out the bare shoulders.  4)Wearing an elevated heal with shorts ups the formality.  Save the flip-flops for the beach.  5)Wisely chosen accessories again help keep the formality office appropriate.

Here are some other great examples for when there's no way in hell you're wearing even a 3/4 sleeve linen blazer.

This is another great example of how to wear shorts to work!
