The Perfect Outfit: A No-Sweat Summer Look For Work (And Beyond!)



Just between us, we've been enjoying the heck out of this recent spate of beautiful, downright balmy days — long lunches in the park, extra coffee runs, outdoor happy hours, and al fresco dinners have quickly become our favorite pastimes.

We've gone as far as to style an easy-to-recreate version for just for you. So, click through to see how you can score this level of effortless cool. And enjoy the weather while it lasts.
