Semi-Professional Summer Style

14 July

 One thing I struggle with constantly is how to look semi-professional in the summer heat. Besides easy, breezy dresses, I grab for an edgier pair of pumps to dress things up a bit, and throw a statement jacket in my bag or over my shoulders just in case (because yes, even in 100+ temps I get chilly when in air conditioned cafes and conference rooms). So when PayPal and Neiman Marcus asked me to contribute to their summer style guide, I immediately thought about some sort of the aforementioned look.

I had some serious luck browsing Neiman Marcus’ website while in search for my summer look (dangerous yet insane scores thanks to sale season!), and ordered everything via PayPal: the Balenciaga pumps of my dreams, this jacket, and the cute toy Saint Laurent bag below (for more than 50% off!!).


Wearing:  A.L.C. Tank.  Vince Shorts.  Ray-Ban Aviators.  gifted Iro Jacket.  Balenciaga Heels.  Saint Laurent Bag.
