Happy Friday!!! I’m not going to say that this was a long week because I really only worked 3 days (#igotafivedayweekend) this week, but man was Wednesday a Monnnnday! Anyone else? I didn’t think it would ever end, plus I was so exhausted, I couldn’t keep my eyes open.

Anyways, when I think of a transitional summer work wear look I think of lace tops and striped skirts. This is a quintessential summer work look that could easily transition to drinks and dinner afterward. It wasn’t that long ago that I had to dress up for work, in fact, I wore this to work the day we took these pictures. Which I discovered recently when going through some files.

Unfortunately, these were taken last year, so sadly, neither of these items are still available. But I’ve linked to several lace tops and striped skirts options in all lengths. To wear this to work, you could switch out the heels for a pair of comfortable flats and either a cardigan or blazer. I don’t know about you, but I’m always freezing at work, so these two items get a lot of wear in my closet.

What is your idea of a transitional summer work look?

Have a great weekend and as always, thank you for reading!

xoxo, Hillary
