Outfit: Button-Down Shirt, Men's Tie, and Dressy Shorts

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

The weekend literally flew by. I mean, one minute I was racing off the job, and the next I was hitting my alarm clock 8 times. What gives??? I try to do something fun every weekend, because, let's face it, life can come at you pretty hard during the week. And of course this leaves us minimal to zero chance to focus on rest and/or relaxation. Let's challenge ourselves to slow it down a bit and the weekend won't quite feel like a fleeting memory ;-)

I saw this purple tie (which isn't my fav color) as I was school shopping with my little nephew. I don't usually gravitate towards men's ties but the color is so sharp in this one that I just had to have it. I also scooped up a blue one as well. Go figure!

I decided to go with the typical button-down for the classic men's look. I feminized it by adding tailored shorts and high heels.
