Happy Monday! Back to the grind today as one of the last Mondays of the summer :( I can't believe it's almost over. It's been a really busy summer around here and such a different summer from the last one. New house and a new job have kept me pretty busy. I've been on the go a lot more so I need my work clothes to match. I've been piecing together some items and these are some of my favorites.

In my job and I am driving about half the time and in buildings half the time. Some buildings are cold, some are warm and sticky and I got to be prepared for both. The same principle I apply to Fall dressing in layers. These pants from Express I have had forever. It's my favorite work pant cut, super flattering and works with all kinds of shoes and tops. I really should buy these in other colors because it's just the most flattering pant for work. Fitted, but not uncomfortably fitted for meetings. I like to pair it with this sweater tank I bought from Loft early in the summer (several sizes on sale 40% off through tomorrow).  You'd think it'd be too hot in this sweater material but it breaths really well and tucks in easily. These DSW slides have been my go-to all summer as well. Black and white is kind of my forte so these essentially go with everything in my closet. Casual enough for summer, but dressed up enough for work. For layering, this denim jacket has served me well. Summer is a bit more casual around here so a classic cut fits the bill. I can wear it if I am cold, or sometimes I just drape it over my shoulders if it's not that bad but I don't want to expose my shoulders. You can definitely trade out this sweater for another tank, or slide sandals, but this look can be recreated multiple times for these last precious summer weeks.
