In the corporate world, the Summer season is a time where the office finally begins to calm down a bit. Everyone is scheduling their vacations, leaving work early for happy hours, and if you’re lucky, making the most of Summer Fridays. While I tend to keep my work life and blog separate, I wanted to style a look that intertwined the two and represented my day to day attire. I decided to create an ensemble that gave a playful take on the business casual look, but was more fitting for social events after hours. More times than not, I usually gravitate towards trousers for the workplace. I’ve also noticed my collection of dress pants rapidly growing over the years with various styles that all seem to contain some form of interest whether it be through color, pattern, or even texture. When I came across this vibrant salmon colored pair, I was immediately intrigued by the classic tapered silhouette and knew they would be a wonderful closet addition. Another popular article of clothing I always reach for is the button up shirt. In my humble opinion, you can never have too many white button-ups (or downs), and I have more than enough to prove it! I love that they each have their subtle differences that make them unique and give a different vibe to each look they are paired with. For instance, it was only until I got very close that I noticed the faded stripes of color that gave a refreshing modern twist on an otherwise basic wardrobe staple. Because I was working with an overall pastel palette, I wanted to accessorize with something that wouldn’t darken the look and add an unnecessarily harsh contrast. Instantly, my favorite pair of metallic heeled sandals came to mind and ended up being the perfect piece to complete this look. To further play off of the shiny accents, I threw on some silver bangles and a gorgeous turquoise pendant necklace for some final feminine touches. I was gifted these pieces by my Father from a recent trip to Mexico, and while I was unsure of how I would style them at first, I don’t think I could have picked a better outfit to showcase them with. Let me know in the comments how you spend your Summer Fridays and how you would describe your go-to style at work. Until next time!
