Summertime in the office can be tricky. We need to balance staying cool on our commute while maintaining modesty and professionalism in the office.

Here I’m wearing one of my favorite shirts, a crop top from H&M circa 2007. It’s got black square metal studs all over that has beautifully aged and chipped in all sorts of random places revealing speckles of silver underneath.
