Since I’ve been working on building a smaller and more functional wardrobe, I thought I’d show you a week of summer work outfits. If you asked my co-workers, they would say I dressed up a little more than usual! Our summer is so short, I try to get some wear out of my T-shirts and lighter weight garments, but I am always shivering in the air conditioning. This week I worked from Tuesday to Saturday.
Fuchsia short-sleeve fleece and white T with gathered neckline (both from Reitmans), navy linen pants (Banana Republic), black croc shoes
Semi-sheer shirt, colour between burgundy and brown, with pin-tucks (Lord and Taylor, thrifted); dark brown jeans (Mark’s Work Wearhouse), brown monk strap shoes
Collared T-shirt – I would say the colour is vermilion (from Mark’s) – with beige pants (Banana Republic) – actual colour probably “stone,” brown shoes, darker beige cardigan not shown
Black cardigan and ocean blue T (Reitmans), navy skort (Mark’s), black oxfords
Ocean blue short sleeve fleece (Jacob), striped T (Kangol), jeans (Silver), Converse sneakers – for working a casual outdoor event
Because I seem to have cut off my feet in all the pix, this is what my shoes look like! Sandals are out of the question in the office, brrr! I am on the lookout for some dressier shoes, especially in brown, but it is useless trying to find any in the summer.
If anyone has ideas on how to put together outfits in different ways, with items similar to these, please let me know!
