Summer Blues









By the end of the summertime, even the most stylish among us would rather throw our hair up in a top-knot, throw on our duke’s and flip-flops and call it a day. Now that school’s out (for the summer and forever for that matter) my summer wardrobe has to stay work-ready and appropriate even in the 95 degrees. (I’ll save the duke’s for the weekend) Not only is this look super brezzy, I scored the entire look for under $150! Shop the look below!

    I like the bold navy color of the skirt. Your bag’s lines and rectangular shape are really cool too! :]

    I love everything about this outfit. It’s super cute, yet still professional and would woo a client of mine into thinking I’m far more mature than I am. Love it all! xx

    I love that this look is summery but still professional! You are always killing it, lady! Also, if you ever want to switch hair for a day, just let a girl know 😉
