What to Wear to Work: Red Jacket, White Pencil Skirt and Manolos








I know there's a fashion rule about not combining pink with red, but these Manolo Blahnik shoes are really more of a blush or "nude for me" color. I also love that they make my legs look nice and long! I love having a jacket with short sleeves, because it leaves me so much cooler during my hot summer commute into the City. London buses aren't air conditioned. In the office, sometimes I'll wrap a shawl around myself if I get too cold at my desk, but in the middle of July that isn't very likely! Plus, a short-sleeved jacket lets me show off my jewelry, like this cute silver bangle that I picked up in Mexico and always want an excuse to wear!! As for the white skirt, I'm trying to get as much wear out of it as possible this summer, since here in London it's really just a one-season piece. You can see me styling this jacket with my grey pencil skirt here and read the story about my necklace here.

Readers, do you have any pieces that you really can only wear for a single season?
