So it’s happening, we are officially forecasted to break the 100 degree mark this weekend!!  The fabulous thing about it is that I have some awesome pool time on the books for this weekend.  This time of year is my least favorite time to get ready for work!!  I mean can I just show up in a tank top and shorts please!!  The more professional alternative – a sort of crop top and pencil skirt.   This top hits just below mid-waist, so paired with a pencil skirt no skin shows.  I do also toss on a  camisole underneath just in case.   I am always a  fan of pairing a pencil skirt with flowier tops, and I love how the bounce on this one floats over the edge of the skirt!!  If I am going to wear a tank type top to work, I do make sure the straps are 1-2 inches thick.  The material of this one is thin, so it is perfect for hot summer work days!! I also love that I can add a coloful cardigan on top if the office is too cold.

I also have to mention that my Henri Bendel bag in Green is back in stock!!   I receive so many compliments on this bag from coworkers, friends, even strangers.  I think the color is way prettier in person too.   If you prefer a more neutral purse, they also released this bag in a really pretty taupe color. Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. I am not looking forward to days of over 100 temps. Our hot summer arrives much later in the year (around mid September) but I am already complaining in the 80s. Love how you were able to incorporate a corp top to work.

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!

    I love all the colors you have going on in the outfit, and the sparkles 🙂 I’ve never dared to try out a crop top for work, but this is actually a nifty way of going about it. Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

    Pretty! Love the print on your top!

  9. That top looks stunning with the black skirt. Very jealous of your warm weather. Bron x

  10. Understated yet elegant. The floaty top is summery and the pencil skirt gives the profession edge – great way to wear a crop top. And the bag is fabulous!

    Love that pencil skirt! Looks perfect with the floral to. Perfect combination of patterns and solids.
