Shorts you can wear to work? They *do* exist

It's a summer miracle.

It's a summer miracle.



I was secretly thrilled when Deal Diva Lisa asked me to write this post.

She had noticed my work shorts.

I bought said shorts three weeks earlier to take to a conference in California. I was looking for a unicorn: an outfit that was clearly business attire, but also kind of funky. Long pants were out of the question. I had been forewarned that some of the conference would take place outside, and temperatures would rise into the 90s.

Hence, my need for some work-appropriate shorts.

I found these on the sale rack at Banana Republic, along with a similar pair in white. The price: $20 each.

I suspect they once had matching suit jackets. I picked up a couple of short-sleeved sweaters (also on sale) for a slightly more casual look instead.

The best part is, my work shorts work in Florida, too. Back at home, I’ve dressed up them up with a chunky necklace and a pair of black patent heels.

Looking for some other ways to wear shorts to work this summer? POPSUGAR has you covered.
