Well you picked the perfect day because I am lookin hot today.
Came to work straight from the gym, didn't feel like changing my clothes so I'm wearing grey knee length sweat pants, a black sports bra, pink Harley top, black Sketchers with white skulls on them, and my hair is just a little wild and crazy.
Every day is Casual Friday where I work. My boss has on baggy olive green wide wale corduroy pants, a blue and white striped shirt, and has one shoe on and one shoe off.
And yes, people (even clients and taxpayers) do come in our offices and see us like this. We just consider ourselves quirky. : )

The usual array of oddball gear while working: a Georgia Bulldogs sweatshirt, a yellow t-shirt advertising my dog trainer, blue exercise pants (almost sweatpants), and pink patterned Alegria shoes.

As is often the case, I look something between insane and sloppy.

...I am wearing cargo pants with a navy tank with flowers on it and brown flipflops. I work from home...have to get out a few times today so the hairy legs are partially covered. It's 95 degrees in Texas therefore...tank and flipflops.

Today for work I wore black slacks, black flats, black and white large flower patterned fitted blouse. This evening for football game child pickup I have on dark washed bootcut jeans, purple boatneck tee shirt and silver Sketchers.

We had a sales meeting in my office today and even though I don't attend the meeting, I do have a lot of interaction with the sales staff when they are there. Plus they share wine and lunch, so I try not to wear a tshirt and cardigan when they are there.

FC, you both look sooooo adorable!! Love your outfit and that little argyle sweater *swoon* I can't handle that little bundle of cuteness.

Well I don't have a picture of me, but I wore my version of this outfit yesterday and felt pretty cute, got lots of compliments. Pretty much the only things I changed were that I had a mustard colored cardigan instead of the blazer, and a chunky gold chain necklace. My jeans were also more of a trouser than wide leg.
Lilly's Style: Wide leg and yellow

OMG the cuteness. Both of you, but it's a good thing I don't know where you live or I'd have to come steal him from you. Oh, I'd give him back in an hour or so, but he is so darn cute, I want some playtime!

FC - great outfit, great baby, great furniture. : )

I do not look at all great today. Since I have to go to the gym twice today I'm wearing my gym clothes all day (good thing I work in a casual office). Camo knee length sweats, black sports bra, black wifebeater, long sleeved olive green Harley shirt, white socks, white and green athletic shoes.

Thanks everyone. Those that want him would definitely give him back after running after him for five minutes. He doesn't ever stay still.

We'll have to give him to Jeepy, then - she works out

^ We could build him a giant wheel like New Petie the mouse has. : )

You guys and your nice dressy clothes make me feel like a slob on my best days! I love my casual lifestyle but I do get jealous of the nifty clothes you guys have.

Today - Vigoss dark wash low rise boot cut jeans (the only name brand items in my closet besides Victoria's secret unders), blue long sleeved tee, black high heeled penny loafer, blue and black purse, silver and blue sea glass jewelry. This is dressed up for me. I have a funeral to go to tomorrow and won't look much more dressed up than today.

Jeepy, my entire wardrobe of brand names comes from a) the vintage and second hand stores, and b) the buy-out warehouse type stores...I could never afford them otherwise! The rest of the time, I am rolling around with dogs or I am painting - and so when I am not going out, I live in my thermal underwear, so I can get my snowpants on! lol!

Sorry to hear about the sadness of a funeral...my sympathies to you, and to the family in question

Jeepy, if I didn't work, I'd wear jeans, t-shirts and sweaters every single day. I know this because I didn't work for a while and was happy dressing casually.

^^ My boss and I were just talking about how we have changed our dressing styles over the years (I've worked for him for over 25 years).
He used to wear suits, then went to dress pants and nice shirts, then to khakis and polos, then to jeans and tees. I used to wear dresses with heels, then dress pants and blouses with nice shoes, then jeans and tees/sweaters/tanks with boots or flip flops. We both go barefoot sometimes. Not sure how much more casual we can get. hahaha.

I wish! My supervisor is very formal and made it clear to me in the interview that I had to dress "corporate" even though the org. is nonprofit. Annoying.
