Hundreds may be in my closet but barefoot is usually more like it until I hit the pavement (or trail when I’m at my vacay house in Wyoming).

But, am I wearing pigly clothes? NO. (Well 99% of the time and it’s ok to have a moment off). Take a look at my tips on what to wear when you work from home and no one really sees you.

What to wear to a black tie optional event can be confusing enough, so add the extra element of “too sexy” and it gets even more complicated. To clear things up, I would ask your boss as he is your “date” and probably very familiar with what is appropriate dress for this industry.
