Outfit Of The Day For June 19, 2012. From Office To Al Fresco

June 19, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day

You can go from a conservative work look to a fun-in-the-sun look in a flash. The weather is very warm in Chicago, and many restaurants offer al fresco dining which is where I am heading to meet friends tonight. This Intermix Exclusive tribal print top looks conservative and appropriate for the office when covered up with a draped cardigan. I also need the cardigan because it is chilly in the air conditioning. With a switch to a smaller handbag and by simply removing the sweater, I am ready to go to an outdoor cafe for dinner with this flirty summer top (which is not appropriate for the office).
