Summer Separates

It’s summer, and while swimsuit separates along with an OOO auto response are preferred, there are still stints where you have to show yourself at the office.

For those days select lightweight separates – while you won’t be sipping sangria, you’ll be earning and saving for the next seaside stay.

Here I’ve paired lightweight wool dress trousers with a silk sheath blouse, and a denim blazer I wear all the time. I like this color combination for summer as it’s still professional, but has a lightness to it – navy, cream, grey, white, and camel is one of my favorite color pallets. When you want it to feel more summery – add additional white and grey, wintery and warm – boost the camel and cream.

While writing this I realized just how much I gravitate towards this color mixture, a week ago today, I bought the townhouse I’ve been renting the last year and now am getting to have fun updating a few things so that it feels more like my own – just ordered a camel colored coir front door mat, and having the front door redone in a deep glossy navy. Also, looking at updating my bedding and was leaning towards a similar color scheme. Given my love affair with beautiful clothing, and gorgeous spaces (my mom is an interior designer so I grew up with an appreciation) there will be a closet renovation, but that’s going to take a bit of time…  

I wrote about these pants  and blazer recently – you can read more about them in these prior posts.

My blouse has been a staple in my wardrobe for a few years – I found it on sale and knew it would be a great addition – I wear it all the time (it’s probably time to replace it as it has a few snags – but blazers and sweaters hide those!). Shoes, bag, belt, scarf, and sunglasses are all wardrobe mainstays that I wear all the time.

While the best summer suits allow you to swim, the second best are structured separates that support your success.

All my best,
