Dress Code is “Casual:” WHAT does that mean?!

Let’s talk about SUMMER in Southern California!  Add an office with only ONE window A/C unit and 12 coworkers in the room – kinda’ SUMMER….

I had stayed away from lace, ruffles and peasant dresses for too long.  Decided to pick this one up from a clothing group on Facebook and it has become a great “Go To” dress when weather is too hot to put on so many layers… YET… I can dress it up with a nice cardigan, a statement necklace and belt.. OR… dress it down with by wearing it without a cardi and put on my spiked tennis shoes from NineWest.

Did I tell you how GREAT Teal looks on me?  *Wink*

Today I decided to do BOTH!  You know the feeling you get when someone sates on an invite: “Dressy Casual?”  Then we go crazy trying not to “over dress” and certainly NOT “under dress” either.  Yes!  I KNOW THE FEELING!

So here’s one rendition of my take on “dressy casual.” I decided to wear my “Gently Used” teal statement necklace with gold metal trim, and my gold metal stretch belt that I received from ASOS in the mail today.  My shoes were found by one of my Facebook friends at a 2nd hand store in NEW condition States away.  They remind me of the “jelly” shoes I wore as a kid and MUCH MORE comfy – Optimum Cuteness! How fun is it to have such AMAZING Facebook friends that think of ME when they shop???!!  Right?!  I am one lucky gal.
