Summer Office Wear

I know living in a hot place during summer, like good ole’ Florida, can make dressing difficult. From stepping outside to the dripping humidity, to sitting in a cold office for hours, dressing can sometimes get confusing.

Today I wanted to put together one of my favorite office looks to take you from outside to indoors. My biggest tips are to layer, layer, layer and to wear clothes that cover your body but are lightweight in material. That being said, my first and favorite piece of this outfit are White House, Black Market’s, ponte slim ankle pants!

I am obsessed with the ponte slim ankle pants from WHBM, they cover your legs, but are light in material, so you won’t be dripping in sweat when you step outdoors. Yet they’ll keep you warm and stylish indoors.

For the top I would wear a sheer long sleeve shirt, with sleeve that could easily be rolled up. One of the best shirts for transitioning from hot to cold is Express’s Portofino shirt! They have a crazy selection of portofino shirts that are sure to fit all different types of styles.

 

And to top off the outfit it’s always a good idea to bring a heavier jacket that you can throw on over your portofino top! I recently picked up this number from Express and am dying to wear it out!

Cold Weather Essentials

Living in Florida, the cooler days are few and far between, but with winter comes the occasional chilly day, and it pays to be prepared! Last month, AroonMelane published a post called “My Favorite Sweater Dresses For This Season, highlighting the beautiful sweater dress and the many sweater dresses out there that you are bound to love. But what else should be in your closet as your winter essentials?

fishsweat1. The Chunky Fisherman Sweater
As Glamour is quick to point out, the chunky, cuddly fisherman sweater is every fashion designer and blogger’s dream come true. The cable knit is versatile, and you’ll find many uses for it through cooler days, be it with a skirt or with a nice pair of tailored pants.

blkturtle2. A Classic Black Turtleneck
Another item you should have, the black turtleneck is something you can wear in every season, but it works wonderfully in the winter because it’s easy to pair it with a nice midi coat. If the weather isn’t cold enough for layering, the turtleneck itself should be classy enough with a few chunky accessories.

leatherboot3. The Leather Boot
An obvious choice, the leather boot is featured on just about every Winter Essentials list, and even the Gift Guide on Woman Within. While a good pair of leather boots is too expensive to give as a gift, making the investment for yourself is sure to pay off, as the versatile leather boot can be worn over pants and leggings, or with the right cut of dresses.

fleecesarf4. A Fleece Scarf
Nothing quite says winter as well as fleece does. This warm material comes in all shades, and you’re sure to find that a good scarf is a great way to add color to a drab winter outfit, as well as add that much-needed texture and layering to your winter clothes.

brightbag5. The Bright Carryall
Harper’s Bazaar calls the bright-colored carryall “a smile does when you are feeling down” because it instantly lifts your mood and elevates your outfit. This is a great way to add personality to your winter clothes if you find yourself wearing a lot of neutral shades.

What do you think count as your winter wardrobe essentials?
