I was jokingly calling this outfit my “business casual” outfit the other day although it would never, ever fly in an office environment except maybe a creative startup. (For what it’s worth, I totally could have worn this when I worked at BaubleBar but that was definitely a more creative work environment). I think probably the second best thing (after setting your own hours) about being self-employed is the dress code, or lack thereof. It’s fun being able to wear whatever you like.
(That being said, I always start my day in workout gear. I put my gym clothes on in the morning and I have a silly rule that I can’t change out of them until I’ve gone and exercised! It’s good motivation to get in that workout so that I can shower and change for the day!!) From there I just change into what I want. Having help this summer (I have an assistant with me two days a week. You’ll meet her later) has really helped me make sure I get dressed every day. It’s easy to just stay in those sweatpants!!!)
“Business Casual” Outfit Details:
A word about these shorts. I love them but they run really big for denim shorts. If you buy them, definitely go down a size. Maybe even two sizes. I’m usually a 28 or 29 in jeans depending on the brand. And I would always buy a 30 in shorts so that they weren’t too short. (I live in fear of tiny jean shorts, read my post about that here) I got a 28 in these and they are perfect.
