Dressing Room | Workwear & Summer Styles

Good morning friends! Yay for Friday! Do you have any fun weekend plans?  I was able to reserve a spot at the pool for me and the kids for Saturday morning and I’m so glad because Houston is SO hot right now!

Most evenings we head outside and hang out with the neighbors and their kids and were were all just saying how hot this summer is shaping up to be!  It will be 7pm and we’re all standing outside sweating!  What about in your part of the world?

With my mom helping some, I was able to publish 5 blog posts this week!  That’s rare, I usually do 3-4, but I’m so glad you enjoyed the Making the Most of (the rest of) 2020.  I think we’re all in agreement that we can still chose to do great things in 2020 and have some fun this summer.

Many of the Best Sales are still going strong and if you need some gift ideas for Dad, go here!

SHORTS

Isn’t this an adorable weekend outfit? I usually reach for jean shorts, but I do appreciate a slightly elevated shorts outfit that can be worn to lunch or a school function.  The heeled sandals dress up the look and accentuate your legs, but flat sandals would work too.

The shorts are darling with blue stripes, a coordinating tie belt, pockets and an elasticized back for a better fit.

Shorts Fit : I sized down to XXS

I literally want this ruffled sleeve top in every color- even the green and I hardly ever wear green.  But, as you’ll see later in this post, the green dress is one of my favorite things in this try-on.  I guess it’s becoming a new fave! The top is nice and soft and fits beautifully.  You’ll be able to mix and match it with jeans, shorts and skirts.

This is more like an everyday summer outfit around here.  The jean shorts are a wardrobe staple and keep selling out in this darker wash, but luckily, they keep getting restocked.  The lighter blue is a pretty option too.

The top has a high curved neckline and fun crochet sleeve.

Are you a fan of pairing lightweight sweaters with shorts? I am for sure and really like the pretty stripes in this one!  It could also be dressed up for work with slacks.

Ready for more white jeans outfits? I love the way gold and white look together and this shimmer sweater tank is in my June Loves GIVEAWAY too.  But now I’m noticing I got a couple snags on it! 🙁

The white jeans are a major Must Have! They are everything you want white jeans to be- opaque, not too legging-ish, and actually flatter your legs with a high rise and zip fly.  They also have a raw edge hem.

I love the look of this black floral top with the white jeans, but of course, it would also look great with black or blue jeans. It has a smocked waist and at the sleeves.  It’s a bit sassy, perfect for an evening out- but see my fit tip below- you may want to size up!

If you’ve been looking for a lightweight, classic pair of shorts for our hot days, try these linen pull on shorts by Caslon.  They have a comfortable wider elastic waistband and a functional drawstring waist.  I like that they have pockets and a 3″ inseam.  You can machine wash them and they come in several colors.

Shorts Fit : I’m wearing size XS

The top is so cute and easy to wear with a pull-on style and slight peplum hem.  You’ll see that this pretty aqua floral pattern comes in a dress too.

Striped Sweater

Super sweet summer sweater with a bit of shimmer and stripes.  It’s a 3/4 length sleeve and looks great with white jeans now and on into Fall.

You can also dress the sweater up with a pair of khaki pants or the paper bag waist pants if you have them.  This pair is from Amazon and they are so good! They’re meant to be a more crop length, but on me (5’1) they fit to my ankle.

A short sleeve option is this cream colored lightweight sweater.  It’s DARLING with the ruffle sleeve and of course, it’s super versatile.

I tried the Riviera pants at Loft in this chambray blue and also white.  They are a mid-rise crop length with enough stretch to make them comfortable for a long workday, but not so much that they’ll stretch out with wear.  They zip closed in the front with a hook/bar closure and front slash pockets.  I like the modern, slim fit and belt loops that let you accessorize with a belt.

This chambray color has a bit of texture that is reminiscent of a suit pant, so they’ll be easy to dress up with a button-down top or cami and cardigan.

    I think some of your content got lost. The text stops right after the Riviera pants. There is no description of the items, just the sizing. The description of the white pants cuts off mid-sentence. Totally ignore this if that’s the way it was supposed to be!

      Jenelle! I’m SO sorry and embarrassed about that! I spent so much time writing out all the descriptions and comments and somehow half of them didn’t save! Grrrr!!! I’ll have a live try-on on Stories on Sunday if you want to check that out- it will have more details! You can watch it on my Instagram Stories @honeywerehome 🙂

    As usual, every thing looks fabulous. Green is a beautiful color on blondes. You should wear it more.

    I just bought the shimmer top, white & blue tank top & ivory multi sweater tank. You are a good & bad influence but we have such similar styles. I really enjoy all your finds & I got the sweaters at 40% off & the tanks were $8. I missed loft so much. Thank you for reintroducing.
