New office dress code?

You would think that after years and years of having the same routine every morning – go for a run, go to the gym to take a shower, drive to office – I would be able to pack my gym bag in my sleep. Apparently, I can’t do that even when I am awake!!

I certainly had remembered last night while throwing in stuff in the gym bag that it was going to be a Friday today and therefore it was going to be casual clothes for office. However, in the bargain, I completely forgot to throw in my shoes πŸ™

Sitting in that gym bench in the locker room, I contemplated for about a minute, weighing in my options. And then finally just walked out in a pair of understated jeans, a casual black shirt and a decidedly garish neon pair of running shoes πŸ™‚

After walking into office, I went from door to door asking people how I looked πŸ™‚ Most were polite πŸ™‚ Some even suggested that if anybody could pull it off, it would be me πŸ™‚

Which kind of makes sense. As unseemly as those shoes look, without the shoes, the rest doesn’t look much seemly either πŸ™‚

Bidisha – this one is for you – #100ridiculousdresspact πŸ™‚

    Actually, I think they look great with the outfit. No problem there. And they certainly livened up our meeting today. Brilliant.

      This from the guy who was wearing such a bright orange shirt that we almost put in a “Caution! Men At Work” sign next to him? πŸ™‚

    Anamika, and it is a good thing too that you have not had wine. Else your aim might have been too sloppy in the shootout πŸ™‚

    You do realize that in my book every day in the YEAR is a wine day. Why go for “weak” propositions like a “week” πŸ™‚

    Could be that the shoes were so nifty that people forgot you were going for the grungy Friday look…I like Bharat’s comment.. shiney on both ends…
