Crazy Weather, Crazy Pants

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

Earlier this week you would not have believed it was August. I was wearing a sweater, In August. In Chicago. This is crazy.


Sweater – Loft via Goodwill (similar) | Pants – The Limited (similar) | Shoes – DSW (similar) | Necklace – clothing swap (similar)

Oh yeah, I also got my hairs cut. I hadn’t done anything to my hair since November and I figured it was time. I seem to be back in the rut of letting it grow out and then getting it all chopped off. I’m kind of digging it short, though.

I was worried that it would look ridiculous after a lunch-time sweat-fest (aka the gym) but it turns out that when it’s short like this it just sort of does it’s own thing and I kinda like it!


Very Little Orphan Annie meets The Great Gatsby, no?

Anyway, I honestly can’t remember the last time I wore my black cropped pants. Let me check. Hold on….

Oh wait. It was here. I highly recommend you don’t click that link. It’s pretty horrible. Anyway, it’s been over a year. Crazy to think that black cropped pants used to be  a work wardrobe staple!

    Love your hair! Super cute- you got a lot off! And that’s too funny- I wore my camel sweater this week too- layered it over a dress. (So did you take these photos after your gym session? If so, you look DANG good! I would be a hot mess!)

      Hahaha, no, I took these pictures before the gym 🙂 Although, tomorrow’s post includes pics that I took after I rode a Divvy bike home from work (yay helmet head) and if I take one after work today it will be post-lunch time workout 🙂

    I love your hair this length! I also love that it just does its own thing and looks fantastic! You’ve got great texture and volume goin’ on. I’m jealous. Yea, this weather has been odd, that’s for sure. It’s funny that the last time you wore those pants you wore leopard shoes with them. I like your flats better though, I think.

    Crazy *awesome weather, I think you meant to say. Cold temps 4eva! This year has been my dream 😀

    My hair is currently about the same length as yours, courtesy of my overly enthusiastic Hair Cuttery stylist, and though I’m not super wild about the length, I have to say I very much appreciate the low maintenance aspect. It dries SO fast (both with a hair dryer and by the air), and I’ve found it generally looks decent no matter what I do. Less styling time = happy Bethany. Although it’s a struggle to have it all up in a ponytail these days, which is definitely a bit obnoxious. At least it’ll grow!

    Its been quite warm in the UK since May and I have reverted to wearing skirts and dresses to the office. I have even persuaded some of my younger colleagues to try wearing skirts – something unheard of as they have lived in black trousers since their schooldays.

    I expect we will be all back in trousers next month though with the on-set of Autumn.

      I used to wear pants all the time, too. But several jobs ago I was up and down ladders and crawling on the floor and hauling boxes. Then I went to a desk job and wore skirts more often than pants. And now that I can wear either I gravitate towards pants again. I guess we go in phases in our lives.
