This post could also be called "What to wear to the office when it's 35 degrees outside". It has been HOT. Insanely, ridiculously, gloriously hot. Which admittedly can make office dressing a little bit more difficult when all you want to throw on is a little cotton sun dress.This little peplum has become one of my most worn tops of the summer. From work to play, it works for just about everything. 

I hope you are all having the most fantastic summer days! I am trying to soak up each moment and have been spending more time in swim suits & shorts than blog-worthy outfits, but I'll have to try a little harder to make sure I photograph it when I am wearing real clothes. ;) Happy Tuesday!

  7. I've been playing the "what to wear when it's muggy and HOT" game too. Yesterday I think I went a little overboard with a too short skirt (whooooops) and today settled on above the knee jean shorts and a tee from J. Crew. Thank god we keep it casual at our firm cause I don't have enough sundresses for how damned hot it's been here lately!

    I LOVE this skirt! Do you have a direct product link?
