What to Wear: to Work in Summer

Shirt and skirt J Crew; bag, Tory Burch.

Top and skirt J Crew

Looking polished for the office is a challenge under normal conditions and even more so in the heat of summer – makeup doesn’t stay where it should, tailored pieces wrinkle, hair gets frizzy…It’s *hot* in So Cal but, unlike here I didn’t get to dress casually.

This linen t-shirt kept things cool while also being office-ready when paired with a pencil skirt. As I mentioned here, I’m leaving for Asia next week – it’s going to be warm in Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore – so I promptly ordered a second of the shirt in another color as it’ll be perfect for traveling as well.
