Hot and Misty

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

So, for some reason my comment notification emails are no longer showing up in my inbox. I’m not sure what’s up with that and I hope you guys are still getting my responses. Because I do try to respond to every comment I get! Even if today they are about how leggings are not pants.

Or maybe your comments will be about how my smile looks a little crazed. I took these pictures on Sunday and it was HOT and I just wanted to be done. I was sweating like crazy. But this outfit is actually perfect for my office and the weather today. Mainly because these are pants, not leggings. I swear! And the weather has cooled off substantially so wearing a scarf in July isn’t totally odd.

Although, just typing that seems odd. I swear, am I the only person who checks the weather a hundred times before deciding what to wear? You just never know in Chicago!

For example, like I said, on Sunday when I took these photos it was ridiculously warm outside and people were pressing the mist button on this sculpture at the park like crazy. Yes, this sculpture has a mist function. It’s super fun and I’d actually never seen it in action until Sunday.

See it in the background? And see the guy staring at it? That was basically everyone’s reaction. So, if you ever come to Chicago and want to see the misting sculpture, let me know. I’ll hook you up.

    I like this outfit but am not certain I could find pants like that to fit my calf muscles… they look cute on you though! And I can understand the scarf. I’m in the DC area and it’s cooled down a good bit today. I’m excited about this awesome cooler weather in July! It rarely happens! Also, being 38 weeks pregnant it just feels like such a relief.
    That misting sculpture looks fun!

      My calves are actually something like 15″ around! Most riding boots are too tight on my legs and I feel like even skinny jeans are TOO tight sometimes. These pants are kind of stretchy so that’s probably the only reason I can get them up over my legs 🙂

    It has been really hot and sunny in the UK and I have not worn pants (trousers to me!) for several weeks. I was always a skirts/dresses girl until the end of last year when I was persuaded to start wearing trousers and now I am busy persuading my office colleagues to try skirts as they are cooler!

    This cool weather is fantastic! It’s like we’re getting a glimpse of the spring and fall we rarely get! Perfect for scarves!

    What a cool sculpture! I’m just amazed that you were wearing long pants on such a hot day. I try to avoid them all summer!

      Normally I do, too, but the day I actually wore them to work (yesterday) it was also chilly enough to need a cardigan. Of course, our office is also chilly so if I can suck it up on my walk to and from the train it’s usually better to dress a bit warmer than I need.

    Jeggings! I wear them pretty often to work, but I’ve recently updated my summer dresses and skirts office attire because it’s been so HOT! But of course, as I comment, the weather is supposed to be sunny but nippy out! smh. I love the hat you chose for this outfit! Great post Erin!
