Let’s chat about pleated midi skirts for a minute to day, because they are probably the one thing that your closet is missing (mine, too). They are flirty due to the desire to twirl in them all day, but sophisticated thanks to the below the knee and timeless silhouette. However, I’m obsessed with the look of metallic pleated midi skirts. Metallic pleated midi skirts add an unexpected vibe to your wardrobe. Plus, they would make a great alternative to your favorite LBD during any upcoming holiday gatherings or parties. Just putting it out there.
In the meantime, get into these metallic pleated midi skirts.
Technically, it’s not quite yet fall and it won’t be fall until late next month. Seems like forever, at this point of the game. However, not that most schools are in session or about to be in session and the days are starting to feel shorter, it’s beginning to feel more “fall-sy” everyday. Therefore, it’s a perfect time to start pinpointing the things you need in your fall wardrobe. Since I’m all about the ease of transitioning from one season to another, I know the easiest place to start is with finding the dresses you need for fall.
Like a good friend, I’ve found you some options!
It’s so hot and humid these past couple of weeks that I’ve been mostly tossing on light dresses, because they combine ease, comfort, and togetherness in one piece of clothing. However, another item that I’ve been gravitating towards are lightweight colorful printed shorts. As a lifelong member of #TeamThickThighs, me and shorts haven’t always been the best of friends. Yet, this heat has made me give another shot at wearing shorts.
I’ve been loving the array of lightweight printed shorts that I’ve been seeing everywhere. They are comfortable, cool, and casual. When styled properly, they can be dressed up with a lightweight blouse and strappy sandals or dressed down with sneakers and a tank. Remember, options are a girl’s true best friend.
Check out the following printed shorts for some options to add to your summer wardrobe.
This weekend, while trying to avoid going out into the humid heat, I started to streamline my everyday wardrobe rack in preparation for summer. As I was folding and packing away the last of my my long sleeve shirts and heavier pieces, I was also analyzing things that I feel my closet needed for the summer. The first thing that popped into my mind was a crisp, white shirt dress.
In the summer, it can be hard to find and style appropriate office attire, because it’s not appropriate to show too much skin in an office environment. Therefore, you have to be real selective in what you choose to wear at work. One of the most difficult decisions you can make when dressing for the summer in finding cool, office-friendly sleeveless tops.
A chic tank with an embroidered trim is a fun and summer-y option and this one from J. Crew would would great in and out the office. However, if you want something a little more demure with a simple detail, this Zara sleeveless top with a tribal detail neck line is quite fab and eliminates the need to find the right necklace to pair it with.
In the spring and summer, prints work and you can never go wrong with a great all-over printed top. A floral print tank is always a instant win. However, if floral prints aren’t your thing, a simple monochromatic stripe sleeveless top is a win, too.
If your office environment is very professional with little room to embrace a ‘lax vibe, a button-up sleeveless top might be the best option for you to stay professional and adapted to the warm weather. Brooks Brother button-down shirts are iconic and closet staple-worthy. Fortunately, they offer a sleeveless version of their crowd favorite no-iron button-down shirt. This red button-down option by Alice + Olivia is still very professional and fun, thanks to the flower and ribbon on the top button.
Remember, you can also add a chic blazer of thin cardigan to any of these tops, whenever you need to tone it down or cover up, because cold offices are real. Believe me, I know, because I’m sitting in one right now as I type this. 🙂
Here’s to finding, styling, and rocking the perfect sleeveless top for the office this summer!
