One thing I do miss about working the 9 to 5 is getting dolled up and dressed for work every day. The fact that you can literally work in PJ’s gets old pretty fast! Even though I stopped doing that awhile ago, it still doesn’t make sense to wear work trousers and pumps in my home office (though my daughter would love to smear her dirty fingers on something so pretty!)
So for this post, I’m pretending I can and addressing the problem of dressing professionally for the office. Yes, it’s way too hot to wear a three piece suit and tights, however shorts and a tank isn’t appropriate either. So what’s a girl to do?
It’s all about channeling the bright colors of summer. Sheath dresses, tailored pants, midi skirts – all of the typical workplace staples can be summer worthy with the right colors. There are so many options to choose from, with statement accessories making the fashion pot even sweeter. Office wear should never be boring or stifle your style.
Just check out these three looks.
