Summer dressing for the office is always a bit of a challenge, but I think I’ve come up with a solution: these amazing blazer/cardigan contraptions.  They’re a bit more polished and structured than a regular cardigan, but they’re still lightweight enough to fold up and toss into my bag as I’m dashing from meeting to meeting.  I loved the white one I scooped up at Zara a few weeks ago so much that I recently went back and scored this snazzy red and zebra-print version.  They’re great because I can just toss them on over a sleeveless dress when I need to be covered up, and they’re not too bulky to carry around with me.

What about you other office dwellers?  Any tips on how you’re staying cool in this sweltering heat while still keeping it professional?
