Summer Signature

If I had a signature summer look for work it would be this. A sleeveless, printed, knee length dress that I can throw a sweater or blazer over in the office and also on the too cold subways. The blazer makes them a little more office appropriate especially if I know I have meetings scheduled. This dress is silk, a natural fiber that's breathable and able to deal with the heat yet polished enough to lend to the overall look. I can wear something like this to work during the day and still run out to happy hour or other networking events at night. 

Dress: Cynthia Steffe  Wedges: H&M  Sunglasses: Michael Kors
If you're a follower you'll know that I am a Gilt Groupe junkie. This dress, like so many others I own, also came from the noon time shopping website. Cynthia Steffe, one of my favorite American designers, always manages to bring a youthful, feminine touch to her dresses. How can you not be a fan?
