14 Chic Blouses To Help You Survive Your 9-to-5 In Breezy Style

Summer in D.C. typically means one thing: heat. And not the idyllic, breezy, margarita-in-hand kind, either. We're talking about the kind that forces you to bring a change of clothes for your commute to work. And as much as we would love to brave the outside (read: non air-conditioned) world in nothing more than a beach wrap, we still have to adhere to that whole "business attire" thing at the office.
Luckily, this season is rife with blouses that are put-together enough for your office ensemble, but lightweight enough to keep you (relatively) cool. We can't get enough of the pretty pastels, lovely florals, and eye-catching neons littering the interwebs these day. Oh, and the best part? Just swap your demure bottoms for a sultry bodycon skirt, and you're ready for a night out. Hot child in the city, indeed.
