One of my favorite things about summer is being able to wear shorts to the office. It's a fun change from my usual attire and it makes for an easy happy hour transition. And while most work places (like mine) adhere to a casual dress code, the topic remains a bit controversial: should you or shouldn't you strut your pair of weekend shorts into the boardroom? I guess it's best to consider these three things:

1. Would you be OK wearing them in a meeting with senior leaders?

2. Do you work in an "official" dress code culture?

3. How short are we talking? 

I say, when in doubt, wear them with a blazer. 

That's what I did with this little printed pair. The black and white color combo make them easy to wear with just about anything and with a lightweight, airy design, they're great for desk days and beach days, too!

What do you guys think? Will you be wearing shorts to the office this season?
