The Dress Code

Recently, I blogged about our Four Seasons we have here in Southeastern Virginia. Just before summer, Summer, Right after Summer, and Christmas. Even if you have previously recognized all of our four seasons here, you probably have not realized that there is a dress code for 3 of the 4 seasons. 

The official Southeastern Virginia dress code is very simple, Jeans and Flip Flops. 
Weddings, funerals, retirements, concerts, movies, dinner, dancing, court appearances, they all have the same dress code: Jeans and Flip Flops. 

The crazy thing is that the weather here allows pretty much the same wardrobe all year long, except the infamous Christmas season. 

There will be a few weeks in Just Before Summer where the flip flops are swapped for rain boots, and a few weeks in summer where the jeans are swapped for shorts, but overall, Jeans and Flip Flops are the uniform of choice. 

Keeps you cool in the day, and warm at night. 

So don't forget your official dress code when you are out and about in southeastern Virginia. Jeans and Flip Flops. 

Unless you are going to Walmart, then put on your pajamas.
