Summertime in the office can be tricky. We need to balance staying cool on our commute while maintaining modesty and professionalism in the office. For those extra hot days, I gravitate towards linens and cottons in cuts that don’t cling to the body. Here I’m wearing Everlane’s texture tank with a loose fit linen pencil skirt from Target.

I set out to the new Cos store in soho to fill a few holes in my essentials wardrobe, a breton stripe top and classic chinos. Here I’m wearing a lose fit 3/4 length cotton/wool breton top with dropped shoulders, tucked into the front of straight leg 100% cotton chinos, that sit nice and high on the waist. Nothing groundbreaking here. But it is exciting to start building a solid wardrobe foundation.
