My long checkered shorts came out twice last week. This first outfit was for something after work - maybe drinks with a friend. They are a comfy fit (a little loose) and pretty high waisted. The cowl-necked tank is a little long in the torso so it helped to cover up the bulkiness in the waistband.
I also want to do a little shout out to the cowl neck. This shape almost always works on me and it's hard for me to pass up a cowl tee, sweater or dress at the store. Holla!
Unfortunately, I tried to wear the same shorts to work a couple days later for casual Friday. They are definitely longer than a lot of the skirts I've worn and a lot dressier than some of the jeans that others wear any day of the week... but I still got called out! My boss asked if I was pushing the dress code a little with the shorts. Well, I styled 'em like a nerdy schmo, so maybe I deserved it:
I probably should have stuck with the pink cowl neck tank from before. I probably should not have tucked in the tee. Showering might have helped... and I should have stepped into some heels to make it more work friendly. I had lots of strikes going against me on Friday... but! ~ I got lots of compliments on the kitty tee!
Do you wear shorts to work? What about the long variety? (What are the long shorts called again?)
