We’re halfway through the work week!
Truth be told, I find this time of year one of the hardest times to get dressed for work. I’m tired of all my summer clothes, but it’s too late in the season to justify spending money on new ones. And while I stocked up on fall work clothes during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I can’t justify wearing a long-sleeve wool dress in 90-degree-100%-humidity weather. Drenched in sweat is not the professional image I’m aiming for, you know?
Speaking of work, it’s that time of the summer when vacations seem to be winding down, the interns are heading back to school, and the realities of a busy fall are sinking in. September through Thanksgiving is my busiest time at work since I head up a lot of our recruiting program, and due to some other factors, I think this fall is going to be extremely crazy. While I don’t have a work uniform per say, I love stocking my work wardrobe with lots of black—it makes for easy mixing and matching in the morning, and it provides a pulled-together look that doesn’t require much thought. Which is exactly why I’ve been wearing this Vince Camuto Ruffle Neck Blouse on repeat as of late.
