The 13 Worst Things About Miami Summer
Miami offices tend to have more relaxed dress codes on average than other cities, but now is about the time when we all start wondering if that dress code is relaxed enough to pull off shorts. Of course, you will end up seeing a coworker that you really wish you didn't see wearing shorts.
Nope! These are a no-no! And yet someone will assuredly still try to make it happen.
Everyone is out of town.
"So I was thinking that we could all get together for a picnic next weekend ... Oh Abby's visiting her ex in New York? Oh, right and Juan is visiting his sister in Spain all of June. Then I'm out of town in three weeks. Wait, isn't Lola going to Colorado after that? And Tom's at Disney in July. What about August 3? Is August 3 OK for everyone?" Then on August 3 it rains.
"Fashion" is near impossible.
The glossy mags like GQ and Vogue suggest outfits like "Put a bright linen jacket over a patterned button-up and consider adding a statement summer silk scarf." Listen, layering in Miami is ill advised most of the time, and actually dangerous during the summer. We're just cutting the sleeves off old T-shirts and picking out basketball shorts in complimenting colors.
