With yet another 90+ day ahead of us, I wanted today’s outfit to be as cool as possible. I could have gone with a skirt, but I know that I have a lot of things I need to buckle down and get done at work today, and for some reason I decided that would be easier in pants today!
I layered my rust-colored cardigan over this thin grey cotton tank to help give me a little definition on my torso. And to protect me from the A/C at work! This tank actually hangs really well. With a cut like this, there is the potential to feel like you’re wearing a circus tent. Because the fabric is a stretchy cotton knit, rather than a stiffer cotton weave or a linen, it falls closer to the body and is more flattering for those with a bigger chest.
As always, leopard flats are the perfect addition to give an otherwise basic outfit a little bit of texture and pop. I debated between two options for my necklace: the pocket watch looks a little heavier, the layered necklace with the feathers feels more summery, plus adds a couple more items of interest. In the end, I chose to go with the pocket watch because I wanted the lowest-maintenance outfit I could put together today and the layered necklace does tend to get wrapped around itself throughout the day.
One thing that I do with very nearly everything in my wardrobe is wear it for both work and weekend. By ditching the sweater and swapping flats for sandals, I could be all ready for a 90 degree picnic.
Just kidding. I’m never ready for a 90 degree picnic. 😉
