What to Wear to Work: Floral Top and a White Pencil Skirt










London doesn't really get very warm - at least, not compared to Washington D.C. or New York, BUT because the temperature is rarely above 80 degrees, there is NO AIR CONDITIONING, except in some of the newer buildings downtown. There is no air conditioning in my apartment, or in any of the stores and restaurants around my neighborhood. My office has air conditioning, but the tube and buses do not have any way of relieving the heat. And, even if building have air conditioning, they don't blast it nearly as high as they do in the US. So let me tell you - when London gets up above 75 degrees, EVERYONE feels it! This outfit was my attempt to stay as cool as possible during a hot commute to work in the morning. Once I get to the office, I'll throw a cardigan on if I feel it's getting a bit chilly, but for now I'm just desperately trying not to overheat!

Oh yeah, and I've added my super cute Coach tote!! I've always loved the blue leather in the summertime!!
