Top: Madewell | Skirt: Macy’s | Shoes c/o B.A.I.T. Footwear | Necklace: Giveaway win on Simply Bold
So Summer totally used to be my favorite season… until I started living in Missouri and working. Growing up, Michigan summers were always beautiful. The weather lingered around the 70-90s and rarely got up to 100. And summer also meant a break from school. A long break. Why can’t we get summer breaks at work? I think we should start a petition for it. Who’s with me?
This outfit is probably my favorite work appropriate outfit of the summer season so far. It’s got pattern mixing, a knee length pencil skirt, fun heels and the most popular bubble necklace of the moment. Call me crazy, I actually really like the sound of the metal clanging against metal on the necklace as I walk from cubicle to conference room. Makes me feel important and heard. 😉
Love the print mixing with stripes and floral! That bubble necklace looks great on you!
love the pattern mixing in this outfit! the floral print on this skirt is so beautiful!!
I love that, “Makes me feel important and heard.” So true for me also! People hear you coming and they know you’re important! I want a top like that- so easy breezy in the summer.
LOVE love love your pattern mixing – that skirt is gorgeous!

I absolutely LOVE summer (other than the whole going to work thing) and it’s so hard to pick my favorite thing…but the beach probably wins 🙂

This is great pattern mixing! Pattern mixing scares me to death, but you pulled it off and made it work appropriate.
My favorite thing so far this summer has just been relaxing, enjoying the long sunny days, and hanging by the pool on the weekends. Heather
Love your office appropriate colors for work! My fav thing about summer is that everyone’s pretty relaxed at work and it seems like everyone’s at 70-80% because everyone’s in vacation mode. I like that a lot!

My favorite thing is definitely not working and getting to enjoy an entire summer for once!
Cute skirt Sandy!
