I LOVE summer, but find it to be the most difficult season to dress for, especially working in an office setting. You can find me either buried under a blanket working away at my desk most days thanks to sub zero degree AC or makeup melting off my face as I walk to and from the car making client visits.
It’s taken a long time to finally define my personal style, but thankfully due to a few style challenges I’ve participated in, (most recently the JUNE30x30 hosted by some of my favorite style bloggers: Andrea, Lee, and Paige), I find myself being drawn to neutrals, layers and versatile pieces. Perfect for summer and the office, right?
I chose 5 pieces and a pair of sandals to jump in for a 5 day work week on the June30x30 challenge. (similar items below)
WHATTTTT??? Won’t your colleagues notice you’re wearing garments more than once in the same week? Maybe, maybe not. If by Wednesday I can’t recall exactly what I wore on Monday, it’s highly unlikely anyone else is paying attention.
So many individuals tell me they are uncomfortable wearing items over and over again, but are interested in simplifying their wardrobe. It can be initially difficult, but so liberating once the realization of how uncomplicated the morning routine becomes and how no one notices you wore the same pair of pants three days apart.
You can see the full recap of my work week styles below AND the debut of my Nisolo Serena sandals! I’ve been an advocate of shopping secondhand since college (and most items below were picked up at recycled fashion shops or thrifted), but I’m slowly transitioning toward supporting sustainable brands.
The Nisolo brick and mortar is located here in Nashville, and it was a true Cinderella glass slipper moment when I tried these on! A full review will be coming soon, but these sandals have been a dream so far!
PS. I made it through the week with no spills or stains to speak of! I consider THAT a success! What items do you include in your work week capsule?
