I have been a devoted attendee of PFC since it was born. I only missed one and I made sure it doesn't happen again. :) Thank goodness this time the challenge is in the weekend, so I have a Saturday morning to procrastinate.
The challenge: Create an outfit that accounts for the various environmental factors that plague us in the summer. How to dress when it's 90 degrees outside and 65 degrees inside.
This is what I have to deal with everyday in the summer, whether it's going to work or to the mall, the temperature variation is huge. Dressing properly is important to ensure that by the end of the day, I don't have my brain freeze over. My typical work wardrobe is a sleeveless top (silk, cotton, light weight, breathable fabric), a pencil or mini-pencil skirt (the hotter it is outside, the shorter the hemline), a cardigan of some sort (I wear cardigans a lot more often than jackets, because I prefer non-structured items), and a pair of sandals or pumps (again, I wear sandals a lot more than pumps because they are less formal and more comfortable). If I still feel cold with cardigans, I would pack a light weigh summer cotton scarf in the bag just in case.
This is what I typically start with on my way to work. See how I stuff this MT cutie with my cardigan and scarf? It looks so cute being full. :) Jean bought this lovely Ann Taylor silk top for me because I couldn't find a 00P in my local store. Thank you, Jean! The Ann Taylor Ikat Zebra Print Skirt fits very well and is on sale now for $32.50.
J.Crew Perfect-fit mixed-tape cardigan in xx-small is very comfy and affordable ($18 on sale)
