My boyfriend and friends and I spent a fun weekend taking a day cruise on the Potomac on an old timey boat call the Cherry Blossom a little bit ago! The event was hosted by a friend's workplace and it was supposed to be about networking... but how to mix business casual with a typical DC hot summer day?
In general, my formula for hot & humid business casual is a cotton top, not too tight skirt and a layering piece I can take off when I'm outdoors. Jazz it up with bright colors and pretty accessories and you're set!
Guess, Helen Wang skirt from Bluefly (gone but here's kinda similar one), vintage Levi's denim jacket, shoes courtesy of Payless, Oliver Peoples sunnies, Foley + Corinna purse, belt from Express. My jewelry include: a necklace from Anthropologie (no longer available but here's a similar one), earrings from Costa Rica from my sister, gold bangles from Cambodia my dad, pearl ring from my mom. But I feel like my necklace just isn't statement enough, hmmmm..
