What I Wore Recap: Work Hard, Play Hard

Today's post is a quick one.  I rounded up a few outfits that I think are perfect for people working in a casual professional setting through the summer months.  Although I am on summer holidays now, I love dressing up in summer pieces for work.  Give me all the dresses and cheery colors!  Let's take a peak.

Just through on a white blazer and you are office ready.

Yellow is so bright and cheery and pops even more against white jeans.  

Coffee before work is a must.  Plus, dressing up a pair of gingham shorts with some dramatic sleeves and flats looks summery and professional.

A simple, pattern dress with a cardigan is perfect to look summery while keeping you warm in over airconditioned spaces.  My current school doesn't have air conditioning but when I was in the office, I just had a neutral cardigan there all the time, just in case I got cold.

I need to find a replacement for these red pants because they are getting worn out but they always just make me feel like BOSS BABE!

This dress is 25 years old!!!!  If you follow me on IG , you saw me throwing it back to grade 8 grad when I wore this.  All these years later I still wear this dress and absolutely love it.  It has stood the test of time and it's flawlessly classic.  For someone who purges often its a miracle this dress has never been on the chopping block.

Although I love my job and planning outfits for work has become something that gives me joy, I love coming home to some comfy style.  Let's take a look at three outfits you will see me in probably weekly.
Although you wont see me rollerblading weekly, I love to wear my lulu capris and a loose top most evenings.  

Kick off the heels and trade them in for some white sneaks.  This is basically what I live in as the sun begins to set and we head out for our evening walk with Oreo.

Now that I am on summer vacy this is basically my uniform daily.  Denim shorts and a tee or tank.  Confession, I only have one pair of denim shorts?!?  Eeek, I really should probably add another pair, but I have a black pair and a denim skirt, and also several throw on simple dresses. 
What's your summer uniform?

Well, that's it my friends.  All of these came from my closet and NONE of them were new purchases this year.  The stores are still rather uninspired around here but I have been gravitating towards maybe adding a few pieces by ordering online.  

What trends are you loving right now?

  8. So many fun summer looks, Bo. Those red pants are totally Boss Babe! What a great outfit that is. How cool that you can still wear a dress from 8th grade! I would never fit into my 8th grade clothing or my 12th grade clothing or my clothing from my 20's! But I am getting close to my 30 year old size! Haha. Fun post. Lots of style inspiration!
