Summer Office Style

There are so many ways to look professional yet be comfortable, and a basic tee is something I start with. Since I'll be on the move and working for 8 hours of my day, comfort is my #1 priority, but who says that you have to sacrifice looking good? See how I dress up a basic white tee for my 9 to 5 job!

First tip for comfortable work wear is look for knitwear. The soft material is usually 100% cotton, or a cotton-blend material, which makes it breathable in this summer heat. My comfy white tee is from Target. It also comes in a black color - and I have that too. I love this one specifically because it has the little button details on the shoulder, and it gives it a little more detail over just a plain white tee.

This first look is paired with high waisted paperbag trousers. I got my trousers from Zara (they even have a fuschia one on sale right now! ). The key to looking more professional and polished is tucking your shirt in, it's an instant pick me up. I love these trousers because they have an elastic waistband - which means all day comfort even if you have a lunchtime food baby. No guilt eating that second taco on #tacotuesday! I added my pair of Marc Fischer Caitlin Pump. The block heel is perfect for some added height, and all day comfort. You can definitely pair this look with some flats, my absolute favorite flats are the Me Too Audra Loafer Flat. They are so so so comfortable, and the pointed toe elongates your legs.

If you're not a trousers type of gal, here is a skirt edition. Same deal, I tucked the white tee in to this beautiful floral skirt I found at Marshalls. Here is a smilar one from Charlotte Russe. Florals are perfect for the summer time and helps to add a little color. Add a knit blazer to make it more professional. Here is a similar one from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Public access to the sale starts this FRIDAY July 20th! Don't forget to mark your calendars :)

There are so many ways to dress up your basics to make it work as your work wear. I will definitely be bringing more basics inspired work outfits, to make getting ready in the mornings easier so stay tuned :)
