Let's Talk: Transitional Summer Workwear

With the weather getting warmer and warmer...and warmer, I realized (as I always do this time of the year, every year) that my all black classic suits, black wrap dresses and little booties are just not going to cut it! Here are some options for maintaining a professional look for the work environment while adjusting to the temperatures:

1. Professional, light coloured suit {perfect for the boardroom}
2. Professional, light, airy shirt {Perfect substitute for the long sleeve white shirt}
3. Dainty, yet fun and trendy jewelry {Love my bold pieces, but sometimes it's too hot for a bib necklace!}
4. I love this entire look so much. It's just perfect. Enough said.
5. Yellows, have a positive psychological effect on people {maybe your boss will let you leave early?}
6. I can't live without scarves {at least you won't fry in this material}
7. Nude pumps {they are my new black for the summer}
8. Love my black DVF wrap dress {this is the same fit, but more summer appropriate}

Pin It!


  1. I love the reason for wearing yellow, maybe I should wear it every day! :)
