ENTER MY lil CHANEL GIVEAWAY-CLICK HERE! Ends Friday!
So as some of you might know, I work full time in an office at a University. The dress code here when classes are in session is business casual- ie: dress pants, top, heels or flats, sometimes a skirt, or sometimes what ever ends up on my body when I haven't had enough sleep. During the summer we can dress more casual-ie: jeans, shorts, etc. This summer I've been wearing a lot of dresses. I just feel that they are more comfortable when the temperature climbs. Seeing how in my closet there were only a few hanging I sort of went on a dress buying frenzy this summer.
LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's dress, random cardigan, Pour La Victoire Tarissa Wedges
I've come up with a problem many times when dresses arrived at my house- they were too short! My niece asked me, "What's too short for work?" It made me think. What is an appropriate length for work when it comes to skirts or dresses? In the winter I can always throw tights on underneath and the length is fine, but in the summer it a whole other story. I have to look professional and don't want to look slutty. I bought this LC Lauren Conrad dress only to have to return it. Looks fine on right? Well when I bend over to pick something up you'd get a whole other view- one that isn't fitting for the office, as my father would say. Some might go ahead and wear it to work, but I like to keep it classy and try to look respectable.
The box? Looks sort of like the one I built here. My dad is building a raised garden box on the side of our yard we don't use much to house our veggies next summer. We have a box like this on the other side of the yard that we have the veggies in but it will be filled with flowers next summer instead.
Can't believe today is Wednesday! I have so much to do to get ready for my get together at the house on Saturday. I'll post pics :) Tonight I'm taking my niece to see Ramona and Beezus. Has anyone seen it yet?
I was gonna post a picture of me bending over so you could fully understand the length...but I'm not ready to share that yet :) So give me your thoughts on what an appropriate length is. Would love to know what others think.
