You guys probably aren't surprised to hear this, but it was hot to death last week. This week is shaping up to be a slight reprieve from the heat, but that means nothing when it is only about 5 degrees less and still in the 90's.
The big boss was nice enough to suspend the dress code on Friday and let us wear shorts. The email sent out stated if you can wear it to the beach, you can wear it to the office. I'm happy to report no one got too crazy and came in a bikini top although there was talk among the guys of wearing thongs (very bad visual image)! My beach uniform of shredded jeans and a cover-up went unworn, but I thought I would go to a classier "beach" with the ensemble I put together. I wanted to pretend I was strolling along some fancy Italian beach, with a cocktail in hand, fabulous shades and people speaking that beautiful language all around me. It didn't quite transport me to the Amalfi coast, but c'est la vie!!
