With the exception of days when I go to Court, my office is business casual and in the summer we really lean a little more toward casual. Mostly because it's so hot.
Since I can be a little flexible with work attire, I'm always on the lookout for versatile pieces that I can wear both to work and for weekends. This is especially true in the warmer months.
This past weekend, I went shopping with my darling friend, The New Mrs. Barr.
In an effort to step a little 'out of my box' I ended up with this cute little jacket - from Ann Taylor Loft.
I actually wore it to work on Monday with trousers and Christian Louboutins and I think it will look equally cute later this spring with jeans and flip flops.
It comes in several colors and it's got a lot of cute details and it's a good weight. The other thing that I like about it is that the Loft prices make it easier to buy some more 'trendy' pieces without breaking the bank.
And they have great sales!
