Daily MelWear: White Out 2!
Today's outfit is not at all what I'd planned to wear. I was going to wear this dress with the white blazer, but the drop waist wasn't working for me with the blazer and I felt like it was too short for this office. I know it doesn't look short in that post but trust me, it looked short today.
It's a good thing I changed (although I'm not sure this qualifies for a White Out without the blazer, and that's how I'll probably wear it since our AC ends up at 80 in the afternoon), because at the last minute my boss asked me to accompany her to teach a class to nursing students this morning. Oy! I'm much more comfortable in this outfit so I was okay being in front of the room. Until a roach almost fell on my head. At which point I remained calm anyway. Entirely unlike me.
Victoria said, "My tip for dressing professionally in summer would be to invest in a very lightweight ivory blouse (like mine, obviously ;) ) and always carry a cardigan with you! Once the A/C is on full blast it gets cold!"
TiAnna said, " As far as dressing professionally in the summer, I'd say make sure you're not being too revealing at work just because it's hot. Also, peruse your employee handbook to see what you can and cannot wear, and take an example from your co-workers."

Beck said, "I don't really have tips on keeping cool, since I like the heat and our office A/C is usually on too cold for me. I guess one thing I could say is I use shawls and scarves as alternatives to cardigans and jackets over sundresses (they're also easy to pack and light to carry in a bag usually :) )"
