With temps reaching 80 degrees here in Utah this week, its got me thinking summer fashion! While many of us immediately think summer dresses, shorts, and tees, I like to shop for fashion that can be worn not just in the summer but all year long- including those cool spring nights we’re still having here in Salt Lake City! When it comes to spending money right, I believe it’s got to work for the workplace as well, to truly get your money’s worth. Unless you live in southern California where it’s warm and sunny all year long, most of us are only getting a few months of wear out of our summer clothes anyway. Might as well invest in some pieces that can be worn all year long but are still cool enough for hot summer weather!
For this summer season, I’ve found a couple great pieces from Macy’s that are lightweight and airy so they work great for warm weather, yet are so chic and totally appropriate and professional enough for the workplace too! I call it my day-to-night ultimate summer look! This chic 1 STATE open-front blazer makes a great piece for covering up this lovely 1 STATE spaghetti strap v neck jumpsuit in the workplace. These two pieces look great together for work right?! It works great for easily transitioning from work to cocktails later! Just remove the jacket, add a gorgeous pair of open toe heels and a bright playful clutch, and you’re good to go!
The lightweight jersey-feeling fabric on both of these pieces keeps me super cool but still looks so chic and glamorous too! It doesn’t wrinkle either so it’s perfect for travel to any fun summer destinations you might have! The Jacket although lightweight and so cozy, will keep you comfortable and warm on the cool plane ride too!
