Deciding what to wear to casual work events is almost always more difficult for me than any formal occasion. As mentioned here, my job calls for me to work on weekends  in more social settings with some regularity. It’s important to look appropriate for the environment – but also to maintain a professional image. No matter how fun it might be, I’m still there for work!

For a quick weekend trip to San Diego to staff an afternoon gathering, I paired my favorite summer top, also here, with cool light blue cropped trousers and open-toe heels.
