After the last post, I realized that I don’t have fun summer clothes anymore because all I buy during the summer are outfits for work. In winter you can layer more, adding on to pieces that alone might not be work appropriate but that is much harder to do in the summer. When I used to work in retail, I could pull off tiptoeing the line between personal and work clothes but now that I work in an office, I feel very far from that line – living in the black hole that is “business casual” dressing.
If I could buy three new work outfits, they would be the ones below. I didn’t even bother posting the prices so it seems more attainable (if only in my imagination). I think the Dona Monroe blouse below is my perfect work shirt. So simple but the buttons and color make it so unique.
