I made a huge mistake at work today... one I won't soon repeat

I'm working on large blue print documents so Im in the conference room.

I'm on my feet all day, and I was wearing ballet flats because it's dress down friday.

I sat down to work on some documents and slipped my shoe off and was engrossed in my work when my boss walks by and says "wow those are some pink toes!" i was startled and looked up turning red, then he called a co-worker in -kidding of course come look at Marilyn's toes - who knew! The other co worker comes in and says Those are HAWAII READY .. (we have a running joke about us all going to hawaii because we just sold two large towers in hawaii)

Typically Im at my desk and you can't see under my desk, but at the conference room table, apparently you can...

Im so embarassed.

This is the first time in 7 months I haven't worn socks to work LOL

but I guess it's a ease into sandals...maybe I wont have to "tone down" my toes as I thought I might for work after all LOL.

Sounds like they were light about it and having a fun relaxed Friday. Not a bad place to be.

I couldn't work in a place that would be uppity about seeing my toes.

Was there literally nothing good on TV last night or what?

No one was uppity. But it is a pretty professional office. I wear slacks and blouses and dress socks daily.

They wear slacks, dress shirts, sweater vests or suit jackets.

but we do wear jeans on fridays, but dressy blouses and shirts.

i have nice nails, both guys in the office usually take an interest in what my color is - but I keep them professional and muted. while my toes I always go while, like hot neoon pink right now, electric blue etc.

because they dont see my toes. and I thought come summer time when I start wearing skirts and sandals I'd have to tone down my toes too.

but since they got a sneak peek maybe it wont be an issue
