mfay 's Thoughts:

Okay, so I need help.

This is what I wore to work today. I felt good in it. But here is my problem:

I’ve been getting stressed out about what to wear to the office in the summer. For about three months in each year, the weather in my town gets unbearable. The temperature is over 90 degrees F (over 32 degrees C), and the humidity drenches you as soon as you walk out the door. The air is thick and hot.

Last summer, I had about three office-appropriate summer outfits that I wore over and over again. I have about 7 sleeveless tops that are practically identical, a couple of skirts that look the same, and one pair of shorts. Combining these pieces got me through a hot summer at the office, but there was NO variety.

So, Chictopians, here is my plea. Let me know what you think about my attempts at office-appropriate super-sweaty weather attire. Also, let me know if you have any suggestions or outfits of your own.

Thank you!

p.s. On weekends, I f*cking love the weather in my city. :)

Hello my fellow redheaded goddess! I feel your pain. Nothing destroys a look like HUMIDITY. GROSS. ICKY. I think you've got the right idea for the polished office look in the summer. Separates and layers. It sucks that you tend to go from a hot outside to a usually frigid interior. Loose skirts, tanks with button downs tied up like you've got, work great. ROCK IT OUT MAMA!
