Dress With Purpose :: Be Inspired :: Shorts :: Black

by DressWithPurpose

Happy Monday!


My Purpose :: Was able to finally get some work done around the house that I had hoped to do during the week. Today will be mostly a work day, have the internet company coming to the office to boost our connection, will be hanging pictures, cleaning up the office and finalizing some of the decorating.  I will be doing some training today as well with our new admin.  I am hoping for a call from our architect to discuss the remodel design for our new home we closed on Friday, it is a TOTAL fixer but I am so excited about putting my own personal touches on it!! Let the fun begin for the next 6 months as we get it ready to live in. 🙂

My Inspiration :: So since I chose this week to be inspired by shorts, I am challenging myself to put together looks that can be work appropriate. Today I chose to go with an easy choice with long black shorts and of course I had to add a bit of color to challenge myself. Be on the lookout this week for more color!
