It is with no small amount of envy that I have been reading recent IPF dispatches about mullet skirts, office pyjamas, and The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. You see, here at IPF DeskJob, we joke about “summer hours” like they’re a good thing, but what “summer hours” really means is “you will be putting in more of them. Also, where’s your suit, slacker?”
It is in that spirit, then, that I ask you to receive my version of the mullet skirt: a particularly daring ensemble in which I mix two different types of business attire.
I know, right?
Check it out: on the top, you’ve got your standard suit jacket. But on the bottom? Wait for it, kids: you’ve got a pencil skirt purchased from AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT STORE. And on the feet, you’ve got the flats I walked to and from work in, because I forgot about our self-timer photoshoot and left my heels at work.
There is clearly a lot more to be said about my sartorial bravery, but I’ll have to leave that up to you in the comments field since I’m going in early this morning. Summer hours, dontcha know?
