Summer Whites

Something about summer makes me want to dress up a little more for work.  I know, I know, shouldn't I want to just hang out in shorts and a tank top?  We have a casual dress code in my office, so in cold weather I tend to wear jeans and flat boots, day in and day out.  As soon as it gets warm, I get excited to break out my fancy skirts and dresses and heels.


Top - Loft / Skirt - JCrew Factory / Shoes - Sole Society / Bracelet - Baublebar


I may have been wearing this white pencil skirt a tinge too much, I want to break it out every day.  Something about it just screams summer to me.  You know, like the color.


I took these pictures early in the morning, and now I know that before work I look really tired and my hair retains some "natural wave" from rolling around in my sleep.  You win some, you lose some.

  5. You look beautiful in this outfit Kristina! I totally feel you on wanting to dress up sometimes for work, my dress code is yoga pants lol. But on the off-chance I'm only working the desk that day, I always want to dress up!

  9. I'm with you on this one - summer makes me break out my skirts and dresses. The fall is the return of the black skinnies until summer comes back again! Lovely look - I've always loved a white pencil skirt!

  12. I'm honestly just impressed you're awake enough in the morning to take blog photos. I have a top from Loft just like this, and you're making me want a white pencil skirt!
