Shorts Week - Pseudo-Professional





Shorts Week is here!  As I mentioned on Thursday, I really like wearing shorts.  I'm very happy that I work in an office with a pretty casual dress code, so I can get away with wearing shorts to work sometimes.  My own personal comfort level means I usually try to dress them up.  A ponte knit blazer is one way to fancify shorts a little bit.

This particular blazer is a new addition to my closet.  I've had a pink blazer on my list forever, and haven't been able to find the perfect one at the perfect price.  I had my eye on this H&M option online, but they never had my size available to order.  A couple weeks ago, I was taking some summer items to the consignment shop when I spotted this beauty.  It's exactly what I had in mind, and for just $12, I was sold.

So, can you wear shorts to work?  If so, how do you try to dress them up?  Any shorts suit wearers out there?  Whatever shorts outfits you might wear, link up below and make sure to check out Ginny's blog this week!      

Blazer: Gap via Absolutely Her Consignment (option, option)
Tee: Old Navy (option, option)
Shorts: Old Navy (exact)
Shoes: Gap outlet (option, option)

  1. Yay shorts week! I love the stripes with your polka dot shoes, super cute. Nice find with that blazer! I like how cotton or ponte blazers are a little more casual but still dressed up.

  4. I loooove this look!!! I sometimes secretly wish I had a summer job just so I could wear shorts + blazers. I also not-so-secretly wish I lived in a climate where I could wear shorts + blazers. I don't think I could wear a shorts suit except for black shorts + black blazer.

  7. No shorts for work for me. The max we can go short is till 2/3 inches above the knee that too in skirts. You look lovely though, with the pink blazer... :)

  8. I love the combo of the pink blazer + black shorts, it really dresses up the shorts! I don't really wear shorts to work, I would be allowed to, but I don't have many pairs. I really need to invest in a "tailored" pair like I see everyone wearing these days.

    ♥ perfectly Priya
