We’re approaching the middle of summer, and although our free time may be spent in bikinis and flip-flops, for a lot of us our days are spent at work. So how can we look office appropriate without worrying about the heat? Read these tips to help inspire your workplace ensemble for 28 degree weather.
1. Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast.
2. Zara Blazer with turn back cuffs, ($49.99)
Fashion blogger Rumi Neely certainly knows how to keep cool; her silk blazer dressed up her outfit, but she paired it with oxfords to ground her look. Another option is this super thin blazer from Zara, which still offers a sophisticated look without the constraint of a classic blazer. Perfect to wear with breezy slacks or a pretty summer dress.
Next up we have the quintessential white blouse, seen from generation to generation. A classic stable it may be, I cannot emphasize enough its practicality for the office. The one above can be found at Club Monaco, its lightweight feel will keep your temperature down all through the day, and transitions nicely for evening wear. Olivia Palermo paired hers with a chunky necklace, shorts, and a structured bag. Can we say office chic?

2. H&M skirt, $35
This trend will not only make you look classy and ladylike, but its flowy feel lets your legs breathe, as opposed to something more fitted. Enchanting and romantic, compliment this ultra feminine look with strappy heels and a classic chignon. Suffice to say, if comfort is equally important to you as it is to me, this look will keep you cool in and out of the office and will no doubt bring out the girl in you.
