Weekly deals & more: July 11-17

Normally, it is frowned upon to wear shorts, tank tops, swimsuits, or other beach wear to work.

It’s not illegal, but unless you work at a public pool, or you are a swimwear model or something, it’s generally not a good idea to show up to work in a speedo.

This week, however, with temperatures forecast for the mid-to-upper 90’s for the foreseable future, you’ve got to ask yourself, who cares what’s frowned upon?

Stay cool any way you can.

Here’s what’s new for this week.
