When it comes to New England weather, there is rarely an ambient temperature. When I am not suffocating in the heat outside I am bundled up and hanging onto my winter coat for dear life inside the confines of the well air-conditioned office walls.
With this dilemma in mind, I challenge you all to create an outfit that accounts for the various environmental factors that plague us in the summer. I want to know how you dress when it's 90 degrees outside and 65 degrees inside. Do you utilize peel-able layers? Are you particular about choosing fabric that is light but resistant? Or do you just tack on a blazer over summer clothes?
So there's really no such thing as me feeling cool nowadays (esp. since my office is actually 76 degrees rather than the 60s that it used to be) but I'll pretend for the sake of the challenge ;)
I can't say that I got very creative with this challenge but my typical go-to in this kind of circumstance is a lightweight cardigan. What I like about this particular cardi is the lace back allows air in but the sleeves keep you warm.
Top: Lauren by Ralph Lauren Isidro Pleated Lace Top
Cardigan: Lauren Conrad Lace Back Cardigan
Pants: Motherhood Maternity, Black Trousers
Necklaces: Target Chunky Pearls + Freshwater Pearls
Shoes: Target Mossimo Pearce Pumps
Bag: "Charlotte" Vintage Messenger
And when it comes to going outdoors (most notably to commute back home), I just slip off the cardigan and probably roll up my pants (shh - I am just driving home after all) :) The shell itself is a nice, lightweight stretchy cotton.
Looking forward to seeing everyone else's entries!
