I Didn't Get The Memo

So, I had a meeting today that wasn't at my normal job site. I walk into the meeting and what do I see? EVERY SINGLE PERSON had on school spirit t-shirts, jeans or khakis and flip flops. What the what!?! What is going on? Here I am rocking a cute cardi/pencil skirt and wedges with bows and everybody looks like they are about to go to a cookout!


Why wasn't I informed of the dress code? I even had the nerve to have a big flower on the side of my head looking like Niecy Nash from Clean House!  I'm looking at people look at me while I look at them! It was hilarious!

I get over the shock and sit down. What's next? Yeah...a team building activity! Really? Really. So we all had to play this game much like musical chairs and I am the only one teetering on my wedges trying not to get knocked over by the Blue Man T Shirt Group! I got bumped a few times as I tried to get to the next chair but I swear to you I was about to "Roy Jones" the old lady teacher from Mississippi if she made me fall!

Is it better to be overdressed or undressed at a function??

I didn't post my outfit I wore today because you've seen it before but I did rock some shoe clips sent to me from Lynn over at www.shoeclips.biz.  Lynn offered to send me a pair of shoe clips to jazz up my shoes and I accepted. I had no idea that she was going to send me so many!



I absolutely love them...and they DID NOT ask me to say that. Matter of fact, she never even mentioned blogging about them.  She just wanted me to have them. I spent all of last night in my closet looking for shoes to rock my clips with! I am more than smitten by them! Thank you LYNN!

P.S...I didn't post my outfit today because you've seen it all before. I wore this cardigan, and these shoes and pencil skirt

Better overdressed than under. You were probably fly as all get out.

And I love the clips! So fun.

If it's anything outside of hanging out, better to be overdressed!

I agree - overdressed or go home. And good lord, I just want to kiss that dog on the mouth, she has the cutest little smooshy face.

Love the shoe clips!

It's much better to be overdressed and most of the time I am. But that's ok, I think you stick out in a high fashion, polished way!

Love the huge purple flower clips. I'm a fan of clips to change up some older pair of shoes.
You say overdressed, I say stand out.

I love those shoe clips!! Such a great idea to dress up shoes instead of buying hundreds of new pairs with pretty little bows and flowers! :)

okay, first of all, your stories always bring joy to my day! I am CRACKING up picturing you playing musical chaire in your wedges! Lol :)

Secondly, hmmmm I'd say it is always better to be overdressed. At least when you're over dressed people can assume that you actually take the function seriously, which is far better than the opposite.

Lastly, THOSE SHOE CLIPS! I WANT, I WANT, I WANT! Love them!.

Adrienne said...

Oh, it's so much better to be over-dressed than under. Plus, stylish people are always unforgettable!

Juanette said...
