Today was a perfect summer day: hot during the day, cool at night, sunny and clear skies. I need to remember this when winter arrives with it's short, cold, gray, gloomy days. Work is going well. I will most likely be traveling to the west coast for business next week, so that should be interesting. My boss revealed today that he is not a "fan" of flying, as in he needs a couple of drinks to ease the anxiety before take off. I of course find the irony in that statement to be hilarious. Just for a mental picture, this gentleman is over 6 ft tall, moderately well built, football lover, and very stereotypical in the masculine department (as in has night in shining armor syndrome). It always seems to be the toughest guys who are the biggest babies when it comes to flying. That has never failed to amaze me. I had another colleague, several years ago, big, burly, and manly, who refused to fly anywhere. (For the same anxiety provoking reason.) Go figure. Your night in shining armor is ok coming by horse (or sports car/SUV), but ask him to come via jet plan, well that's just plain crazy talk. I mean there are limits.

Needless to say this little work related adventure should be interesting. There is nothing more entertaining than an inebriated boss. In anticipation of your next question, yes I totally want to see the man in all his anxiety laden, slightly drunk form. That will just make for an even better blog post when I write about it :). So, while I miss my work dad, it appears I'm replacing him with...Well, I haven't yet come up with an appropriate name for him yet. Nothing witty is coming to mind at the moment. Anyway, I wore this burgundy number to work today. I got it from Ross and I think it was only like $3. I bought the shoes after the Mr. insisted it was worth the money at DSW. They are Audrey Brooke. I love how my legs look in this dress. At my short stature, anything that makes my legs look long and sexy is a must have in the wardrobe. The shoes probably help. Granted, this dress might have been a touch inappropriate for the office, but I don't care. Once in awhile, one should dress as hot as the feel. Since that's rare for me, I take advantage of the opportunity when it arises.

Dress: Ross, Shoes: Audrey Brooke, Jewelry: Gift

  1. Wowie wow!! You look gorgeous. What a perfect cut and color, and the fabric seems to have just the right amount of sheen. I would wear this dress to work, for sure.
