Today felt like it should have been a Thursday to me, if you want any idea of how my Wednesday went. Ha! Let’s just say I was counting down the hours until I got off work and headed to grab drinks with some colleagues. My poison was a glass of frosé (frozen rosé)…I am a millennial, after all. ;)

This look transitions easily from work to play just by removing the blazer! It was another hot one today, so I’m kind of surprised you can’t really see my glistening face—LOL. I only wore the blazer inside my office; it was way too hot to wear it out for any considerable length of time. I decided to play up the grey stripes by adding a marled grey top. When I got dressed, it took me a while to decide if the greys went together…and I think they do! The texture of the top plays off the stripes and gives the outfit kind of a mixed-prints vibe. This top has a very slight peplum that was easy to conceal with the skirt.

I wasn’t 100% sure about what shoes to wear, especially with this midi-length skirt, but you can never go wrong with black in a outfit that consists of white, grey, and black. I ended up stepping in hot, sticky gum (which is the WORST) so ya know…that was the cherry on top of my day! #sigh
