LET THE WEEKEND BEGIN!

Happy Friday Folks!!  Well today is dress down Friday at work, althought we have to pay $5 dollars it is always for a good cause, charity etc. So today, I choose to wear my Calvin Klein Jeans with a button down Green Shirt. Of course top it off with a sweater to bet the office FREEZE. I am wearing my favorite black wedges, which has been my go to shoe for the summer in the office. It gives me the height without hurting my feet. So ladies, if you are looking for a shoe that is comfortable definitely opt for a pair of wedges.  I will post a Pict later on.

So my  plans for the weekend is to hit NYC. I live about 20 minutes outside of New York, and I want to explore the village this weekend. I haven't been in about two months, which is hard for me, I would love to go more frequently but my schedule doesn't permit.. Therefore, Saturday I will be Shopping, Shopping, and more shopping. Hopefully the hubby doesn't cut me off...Anyways, I will update the website over the weekend of any purchase, sales, and fun things that I see. 

What are you wearing on your dress down Friday?

Business Dress Codes

Business Dress Codes
  • Formal Business Attire- For women this constitutes business suits (a matched skirt and jackets) and, in most workplaces, pantsuits (matched pants and blazer). Closed-toe shoes (no sandals), blouses, hose and conservative hair, jewelry and makeup are expected.
  • Corporate Casual Looks-Working women have interpreted this to mean everything from shorts to sundresses, but in its most literal sense it means "smart business." Dressy pants and a blouse, sleek jersey knits and skirts and tops are all examples of corporate casual. Denim, T-shirts and flip-flops -- all '90s phenoms -- are only acceptable in the most casual of work environments.
  • Casual Friday - Depending on the business, this can mean anything from corporate casual instead of formal looks or "Wear your company logo polo and jeans." If in doubt, ask a superior.

Humidity, Hair, and Heat

It's very hot  and humid in New Jersey this week as in many other states as well. As you know, I am a natural sista which means frizz, shrinkage, and sweat..Of course there are many misconceptions about natural hair in the workplace. However, I am glad to say that ,I have found a few hairstyles for the workplace that are professional and work against the elements. So this week, I am working four french braids in a bun and a twist out bang.  A few days this week I didn't even bother to take out the twist in my bangs, so I just pinned them to the side. This style has been keeping me cool and most importantly, its fast. All I have to do is  get up in the mornings, spray my hair with some leave in conditioner, and I am out the door.  This style is easy, cute, and most importantly,  Professional...So my question of the day is....


How are you wearing your hair in the office to beat the heat?

Have you ever broke your Company's Dress Code?

As I was thinking about what I was going to wear today in this 90 degree weather. I thought to myself, Lord I wish I could just throw on some shorts, tank, and flip flops.  The reality is that would have gotten me a call to the Managers office and back home, which is one hour away.  So what is the next best thing.... Aha my retro forties dress that has pleats at the bottom and no sleeves, but I still need a cardigan for the chilly office. Luckily, for me, I keep two sweaters in the office. One off white and gray that keep me from turning into a frozen fish stick...(lol) Now, for the toes, I chose a kitten pump that is peep toe nude. I will share a Pict. later on.

So my question becomes, when you don't want to break the dress code, what do you wear instead of those items that are inappropriate for the office?  Dish
