I’m liking these “what to wear for work in the summer” series. Dress plus jacket – good outfit for summer in the corporate world. Not sure those shoes would cut it in my workplace though – but maybe there’s another pair in that biggish bag….
she looks happy! that’s the bst part. i love the jacket, the scarf, her hair… the gold of her shoes is fantastic with the navy and pink. my only criticism is that the strappiness of the sandals seems just too open and summery considering how warm the top part of her outfit looks.
have you thrown us a wide ball? i love the girls happy face and great smile (she reminds me of Reese Witherspoon) but apart from that nothing she’s wearing even remotely goes! I’m at a loss! One your comments maybe entirely appropriate right now?
This is obviously a beautiful example of Midwestern charm combined with Manhattan chic. The casual yet classy shoes, the Frenchish scarf, the YSL bag – but most of all the small, the natural hair, the “I love life and I’m okay with me” energy – Wow!
I love those swingy jackets…I made one in plaid late last year. Provide a little warmth and little cool at the same time, and that classic, elegant cut is perfect for showing off your favorite checks, plaids, and houndstooths! (“houndsteeth? xD) ^^
Love the outfit with sandals included…. would it work within my profession? Within a degree. I would carry an extra pair of shoes in the car or boots to make it all work. But, this outfit is on the mark.
In my formerly corporate life, I wore flats to and from the office and had a large file drawer full of heels at my desk. My work heels were more formal than what I’d wear to go out, so I didn’t miss having access to them over the weekend. It also saved me from carrying shoes around, and wearing flats for walking 20 mins to the subway spared my poor bunions. I don’t really love her sandals with her outfit, but they sure beat track shoes as foot-friendly walking shoes for schlepping across town.
New York to London…spring to summer…casual to business. This is all about transition. From the scarf and jacket to the skirt, and to the purse and to the business case, and from the hounds-tooth jacket to the navy skirt. This seems to be all being able to leave the office and not feeling tied down to the clothes she wears inside the office. Though, the sandals did pop off when I first glanced at the picture. Also the hair works casual or business.
I love her outfit, but not for work. I am astounded that everyone thinks this is appropriate for work as a sales exec. I’m in sales, and NONE of the execs at our company in NYC or Chicago ever dress this casual to work. Bare legs, mini? We’d get fired so fast there would be no time to say “I’ll go home and change.” It’s not uptight or outdated to avoid showing too much skin at work. How about some nice flats and tights with this instead?
fine individual pieces but together, does not make a sartorial outfit. gold sandals & pink pashmina scarfy thing makes the look, ordinary…i’ve probably seen this type of “look” on a dozen window displays on broadway. where is the creativity? must be my least favorite of all postings.
She looks beautiful but I’m not digging these flat gladiator sandals on anyone. Plus, they’re just not comfortable and that’s the whole reason for a flat (except if you’re very tall of course). The only thing I like about them is the color, it really helps the outfit.
