I'm wearing a Target green tunic ($16 - buy it!), Gap gray shorts ($11), vintage black belt ($5), Fitzwell black flats ($75 - buy it!), Forever 21 gold bracelet ($6 - buy it!), and a thrifted pearl bracelet ($4) with a vintage Gucci bucket bag ($3).

This past Friday was my first time wearing shorts in a long time. Just kidding. I wore them like last weekend. I'm breaking all my mom-shorts rules by wearing a loose shirt on top. Well, I say pish posh to the rules! Break 'em! And then link up here!

Also, wearing bracelets when you have an office job is the worst idea in the history of ever. Exhibit A. There's no Exhibit B but here's the cutest picture of a goose wearing sandals.

    Bracelets ARE annoying! So are watches. And sometimes rings. Hehe. Bermuda shorts are definitely the way to go to wear shorts to work :)

  6. Bracelets at work -- they always end up coming off midday for me. I love your ergo mouse by the way!

    Love the shorts, I think that works well for the office. Some offices anyway. I would add heels. I love heels with mom shorts.

  9. Adorable, elaine!! I'm with you on the bracelets. They are definitely the most inconvenient jewelry. Oh the things we do for fashion.

  10. Great shorts. These are the only type that would meet the dress code for me, but I'm certain they wouldn't look as good as yours.

  15. The loose top looks good tucked in with the shorts. Every time I wear bangles I feel like all they do is get all up in my way, especially when I'm on the computer. Oh my gosh that goose is hilarious!

  16. I used to wear bangles when I started working because I didn't want to have bare arms. I don't want to know what the people in my office thought of the noise I was making all the time.

    Love the style of the shorts :)

  30. They are not SHORT shorts, I think you pulled them off very well.
    I particularly like the belt !

    ReplyDelete
  31. Cute shorts! I have them in orange and green. Sadly my legs are kind of long so they are too short to roll.

  32. I love the baggy shirt with the loose shorts. You look great Elaine. Also, the olive color is really pretty on you.

  34. You look so good! I love that shirt! I always have to take off my rings and bracelets when I start working on anything, but they look good so it's a fair trade :)

    You are the only person I know who can wear a loose blouse, bermudas and flats and make them look as effortlessly cool as you do!

  36. Ok I adore this look

  37. Your shorts are the perfect length. Lucky girl wearing a cute casual outfit to work. I too always had to take my bracelets off at work to much clanking around and it made it way too difficult to type!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I totally want to buy that tunic! Love the length of your shorts. I dislike when I can see other girls pockets hanging down lower than the length of their shorts. Ewww.
