(shoes chloe sevigny x opening ceremony, blazer urban outfitters, shorts see, mesh top h&m;, watch michael kors)

One of the toughest fashion dilemmas for me is going to business meetings in the summer heat. All week its been higher than 90F degrees in Los Angeles. Which when i googled translate to celsuis that puts it at 32.2C. Either way it’s really hot. I have no problem wearing jean shorts and flip flops everywhere I go right now. But that outfit wasn’t very practical for my meeting yesterday in Downtown. It’s easy to look dressy when it’s cold out but much harder to look chic and professional when your sweating. This blazer is the lightest weight material, that super thin polyester. So it looks nice and classy but doesn’t feel like a jacket. Paired it with shorts of the same material, a white mesh top that really lets you breathe and high heels. It’s simple, chic, classic and practical for the weather.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! Xo

  2. You look like a rockstar! Yet so workforce appropriate. And your bow topped OC platforms are so darling.

    Girl, I have been suffering through the same thing. At least you can get away with shorts for a business meeting. I've been doing everything I can to stay cool here in Houston with work outfits. Luckily I have lots of A.C.!! Anyway, loving this look, and those shoes are fAB!
