Hot Outside - Hot Inside...

OK, truth... I could not help but laugh a little when I decided to go with that title for today's post.

There is good reason though...

I went all demure & ladylike all week.  It's Friday.  No Aunt Jordan tonight.  Soccer games tomorrow so sis gave me the night off.  Hee Hee

I am meeting the girls for drinks after work tonight so I thought something more my "style" would be good.

I even have to snicker a little as I type that.  What "style"?  Hee Hee

Anyway, today's ensemble.

Simple black & white combination.  My staple.  My go-to.  My "comfort zone".

I started with a great turtle neck.  It is May.  It will be 90 degrees today.  I know.  I like a great sweater. 

Paired the sweater with my beloved black leather skirt.  Naturally.

But at the last minute... I opted for a 'pop' of color.  These shoes really are quite lovely.  At least I think so.

And the entire ensemble...

Okay, the title of the post VERY quickly...

I have mentioned in the past (More Polka Dots Post) how awesome my boss truly is.  LOVE her.

Well, today I arrived at the office early so I don't feel bad about slipping out for "happy hour" a little earlier than I would normally take off on a Friday.  When my boss arrived, she spotted me in the hallway and said this, "My, it is as hot in here as it is out there." as she was checking out my wardrobe.  Then she says, "Jordan, I want those shoes.  Not kidding, I want them."

And with that little comment a blog post title is born.  Hee Hee

Well, enough with the blogging... back to work...
