What to Wear: Pineapple Shirt


Top by Amor Vert, J Crew pants, Kate Spade bag and necklace.

Around this time in the summer I tend to run out of steam for work. This year is no exception – between the warm weather and being just inches away from the longest vacation I’ve had in my adult life, I’m struggling to take things seriously.

It is made of silk and covered with the ‘it’ fruit of the summer: pineapples! With this touch of whimsy, I can’t not feel happy. Plus, because it’s made of silk, it’s ultra comfortable and easy to wear in the heat.


mypowerpose7.20-66I’ve paired it here with khaki pants and understated accessories in order to keep things workplace ready.

mypowerpose7.20-62How does August feel for you? Any end of summer trips coming up? As a side note, have any of you seen the movie Trainwreck? If so, I’m sure you now get the same chuckle from “pineapple” as I do! ; )
