This Might Be The Day

I've always enjoyed "pushing the envelope". But I usually try and pick my time for that very carefully. Today I don't have a choice.

Let me see if I can explain.

I have a lot of clothes. A. Lot.

I love color. I'm on a torquoise trip right now.

I have this incredible torquoise and black, slinky skirt. Perfectly acceptable for work - I wear it with a torquoise top, black jacket and torquoise sandles. It's really sharp - trust me. I have very good taste. ;-)

Anyway - the office I work in is rather, oh lets say conservative. And that's their word, not mine.

I can't get to my ironing board. It's in the closet currently blocked with boxes.

This is the one outfit in my closet that doesn't need ironing.

Today might just be the day I get reprimanded for my clothing choices. It's never happened to me before (other than telling me I have to wear shoes) but I just have this feeling.

I might be wrong - and if I am all I can say is - it's gonna happen one day. I'm pretty sure of it. I've only got so many "conservative" outfits.

Damn - this is gonna be fun!!!!

You've been told to wear shoes at work? You do work in conservative places, don't you? ;)

Tammi, I think the "conservative".. rule applies if.... (this is going to make people mad)
1)depends on chest size
2)depends if there are women in office
*running away fast and yelling, BTW I am on a turquise kick too right now....

Those poor guys at the office will be so distracted they won't be able to get a lick of work done :-)

I figure as long as the naughty bits are covered, you;re good to go.

Just go back to Straight White Guy's website and they won't be worried at all by the outfit.
