What to Wear to Work: Summery Coral Necklace and Grey Sheath Dress


This look is my classic spring/summer office look - grey dress and cream cardigan (because the office is freezing even on the hottest days in summer) with bright jewelry and nude pumps. I finally got this grey dress back from the tailor and I am SO EXCITED to wear it!! If it looks a bit familiar, that's because it is the exact same J. Crew dress that I have previously featured in black. I plan to eventually do a full write-up about this dress because it is one of the most comfortable and most flattering pieces I have found. I wear it at least once a week. The black dress is out of my closet for the next four months - I know that in the corporate world, it is always acceptable to wear black, but for me, May through August are the four months of the year where I try to wear as little black as possible, just to give some balance to my wardrobe.

Readers, what do you think? Would you consider banishing your black clothes for the summer months? Discuss in the comments below!

Dress: J. Crew (color is heather flannel); UK website sells a similar style here
Cardigan: J. Crew; also available on UK website
Pumps: Manolo Blahnik, available online here (they will ship to the UK)
Necklace: picked up in San Francisco's Chinatown, but similarly-colored options here for US and here for UK
