It’s been an unusually rainy month here in Charlotte (and for much of the south east). Summers in the south are normally hot and humid with a fair share of thunderstorms in the afternoon. But this summer’s weather has been extreme, with almost a tropical feel to it. Rain and storms have been popping up out of nowhere. Sunny one minute, monsoon the next, back sunny again. (It has actually started raining since I started writing this post).
Anyway, it’s put a little bit of a damper on typical summertime outdoor activities and definitely has limited my photo takes for the blog… as Mother Nature’s schedule hasn’t always been aligning with mine.
With that… today’s look is actually an outfit that I wore earlier in the week (during one of the non-rainy moments) to work. I first put it together to attend a leadership conference near the beginning of summer. I liked it so much that I thought it would a perfect business casual look for the office! My inspiration was that “chambray shirt and pencil skirt” ensemble that has become so popular lately… but I decided to add a twist by trading out the chambray shirt for a chambray blazer. The blazer has so many great details that provide lots of options to play around with. I loved the green lining so much that I decided to cuff the sleeves and add my own green accents.
What do you think?
What I’m Wearing: Gap Blazer, J. Crew Tee, Ann Taylor Loft Pencil Skirt, Zara Heels, Frock Candy Belt, J. Crew Statement Necklace, Louis Vuitton Clutch, Tumi Sunglasses
Where Am I: Shopton Road Center
And, by the way… yep — by the end of this post…. the sun is out and shining brightly again! Have a great week everyone!!!
