Look :: Working Weekend







Outfit details: Sunnies - Sunglass Warehouse. Tank, skirt, belt, bracelet - Ann Taylor. Pumps - Target. Earrings - I don't remember. Shirt - I don't remember, but here's a similar one.


A button-up shirt, a pencil skirt and a pair of basic black heels are my work wear staples for summer. Though I normally like to wear a full suit, it's much too hot for that in July!

I go in for a Saturday morning shift a couple times a month, and yesterday was one of them. These were taken after a few sweaty hours of entertaining customers outside, then enjoying sushi at Hanami. I'm all for hard work, as long as I get to eat. Mmm, food...

Anyway, I'll make this one short and somewhat sweet, as I still haven't unpacked after a week in my new space and only have a few hours left of my weekend. I almost showed you a photo of my bed surrounded by boxes, but I'll save that for a before/after post. ;)

  1. I recently had to work my first Saturday... ever! I found out that the office was casual on the weekends. It was nice.

  2. You look so classy and professional! I just adore pencil skirts but I seem to look funny in them unless I wear really high heels. And yay, to getting moved in (but boo to unpacking boxes!) Also, working on weekends sucks! I may have to visit L.A. for various reasons. Maybe we should eat meet for a meal?! Can't wait to see what you do with your new place! Talk to you later! -Jess

  10. The striped button down is very summery (if that's a word! LOL). Love it!

    Yeah, suits are waaay too hot this time of year!

  11. This is a great summer work look - and definitely cooler than a full on suit!

  15. The pencil skirt works so well on you! I am pear shaped so it is my life's goal to work out until I am able to decently work a pencil skirt lol

  18. I love work wear posts that prove work wear doesn't have to be horrible and boring. You rarely see them. Pencil skirts are amazing and the colours on your shirt are great.

  19. My husband likes the whole button up shirt, dress slacks look, for me. That's just not my style. You look cute but not for me. I would be like superman and want to rip those clothes off to show off my super suit. I'm a rebel like that. I guess I dress more mad men/librarian than professional, unfortunately. What's your job?
