Only two days until I’m San Francisco and I can’t wait! Thank you, all, for your wonderful tips and suggestions, I can’t wait to check out all your recommended sights! I’m feeling pretty vacation-y already since we’re enjoying a gorgeous day and I’m spending part of the afternoon sipping iced coffee in E. and A.’s company at a coffee shop. Gorgeous weather, outdoor cafes, and leisurely days put me in the mood for clothes that just scream summer and vacation to me – like these white pants.

But since we’re trying to brainstorm lab appropriate wear this week, my initial thought was to suppress that instinct and go for jeans instead. Then I had another thought and I’m wondering if all of you who work in a lab have explored this – white pants seem pretty counter intuitive to a lab setting but aren’t lab coats white for a reason? They’re white because you can easily bleach out any stains, right? So just indulge me here for a moment – could you wear white pants in the lab and actually benefit from their bleachability? (yes, I know that’s not really a word). Have any of you thought of that or would this be a definite lab no-no?

And of course, if this were in a lab setting, I’d swap the sandals for these or these flats upon arrival at work. S.

    I never seem to be able to use bleach effectively, so I won’t weigh in … but I love the detailing on your top, S!

    I love everything about this outfit!! From the colors to the shapes to the details on the blouse…so fun and summery! The back of that tunic is marvelous, and you are definitely starting to make me come around about white pants. Oh, and I LOVE where you’re taking your pictures! I definitely need to step it up with my surroundings.

    I work in a Biology lab and I wouldn’t be worried about getting my white pants dirty in lab. I’d be more worried about staining them during lunch or my coffee break! But those are beautiful pants in your picture, I’d gladly risk them.
