A couple of weeks ago, I shared my hot weather styling tips here.  As we stare down the barrel of what is always a brutally hot August (certainly in NYC), those warm weather survival tools are as important as ever.  For me, the heat is especially brutal on my feet (read: Swollen and Sweaty, the Sub-Ankle Scandal) so ditching pumps for the heavenly footbeds of Birks is among my favorite moments of the day.  While they're likely not going to work in the office, these Birkenstocks are about as comfortable as it gets when braving the summer heat on your commute to work.  And, it doesn't hurt that the 90s favorites are back in a big way.  Who says being trendy can't also be practical?   No one.  Okay, other than my dad.  Literally no one else.

Casual Friday: Tasseled

Backpack: Deux Lux (also love the ivory and black versions)  |  Shorts: Rebecca Minkoff (also here) |  Top: J. Crew  |  Shoes: Michael Kors  |  Necklace: c/o Kendra Scott  |  Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington (use discount code "theclassycubicle" for 15% off site-wide!)  |  Sunglasses: Ray-Ban  |  Lips: Sephora (It Girl)  |  Rings: Gorjana and c/o Henri Bendel  |  Polish: Essie (Adore-A-Ball and Watermelon)

While shorts are only appropriate in very casual work environments, this navy cuffed bermuda pair are (amazingly comfortable and) the perfect way to dress up the otherwise weekend-only shorts category at the office.   Speaking of comfy, these slingback mules also come in black and are outrageously comfortable as well.  And that's what Casual Friday is all about.  Tricking people into thinking you're dressed like a real human, while actually just wearing things that make snuggling up at your desk in the aftermath of your Thursday night funtivities a little less painful.  Giddy up.
