This is a year full of transitions for us. Along with transitioning into new jobs and homes, I’ve needed to transition into a new wardrobe as well. I now work 2 days a week at a local jewelry store. Somehow, my summer camp wardrobe just didn’t transition well into my new workplace!;)
I set out to pick up some Summer work wear that could be mixed and matched together. In order to be considered as a candidate for this very specific mission, each item had to fit into the following 3 categories:
- Be comfortable
- Be cool.
- Have sleeves!! (Seriously. Why can’t they make more pretty & cool shirts with sleeves?? Don’t even get me started…)
I first journeyed out on the hunt for shoes. I’s tricky to find both a good fit and comfort for my small (5- 5 1/2) feet. After checking out all the available options within a reasonable shopping distance, I finally landed on the perfect (and only!) pair. These:
FLY by London (affiliate link). Although a bit of a financial investment, I can say with confidence that they’re also totally worth it. I’ve worn them now for over 2 months, and they still feel like I’m walking on clouds!
Once the shoes were determined, I started in on the hunt for clothes. Without really planning carefully, I ended up with a navy and white color scheme. Here’s what I found:
Linen capris from Old Navy and a Brody Miles tunic top from Winners.
These navy blue capris (Denver Hayes) are my favorite ~ so comfortable, and the top (Alfred Sung) is perfect on cooler days. (Found at our local Mark’s Work Wearhouse)
This skirt & shirt combo also came from Mark’s and both pieces are Alfred Sung.
I like how the pieces mix and match together ~ making it feel like you have many more options. I have a pair of white capris that go well with all the tops, so that helps change things up a bit, too. I’m thinking a nice red or pink top would add nicely into this mix as well. So, the hunt continues…
Now how about you? Where do you find cool and comfortable work wear?
