Business Casual

Recently I was invited to attend a luncheon benefiting the re-election of Earl Blumenauer, a Congressman from Oregon who is a key member of the Congressional Bike Caucus. The dress code was “business casual”. Being in the bike biz, my definition of business casual *might* be a wee bit different than, say, your average banker. Nonetheless, I knew I could pull together a stylish outfit that would be as functional for the event as it would be for the bike ride to get myself there.

Here is the result:

The Skirt Sports SexyBack Dress has a built-in shelf bra, T-back construction, and plenty of stretch to move with me as I pedaled to the event. It was a beautiful spring day here in Portland - clear and a little cool. So, I paired the dress with a Sheila Moon Bolero, a pair of Shebeest Pedal Pushers and my Sidi Dominators.

What do you think? Did I achieve my “business casual” goals?


  1. Big fan of Sheila Moon boleros here.
    I love the way the pink matches the dress!
    Way way cool outfit.

  2. It doesn't sound quite right that something called the DOMINATOR could be biz casual, but their fine Italian design are in fact really good for a lot of occasions.

  3. I don't know, Austin, depends on the business meeting...
