Summer in the City

This is probably one of my most worn outfits on the blog to date. My go-to Summer work outfit, with just the finer details changing up from day to day.
It’s clean, effortless, chic, and also very professional, and the best part? Each piece is less than £50 from Dorothy Perkins. The retailer has been my one-stop-shop for Summer work wear over the past few months, with cute office friendly classics and chic Summer staples a-plenty.

This gorgeous white blouse is lightweight, with gorgeous clean lines (I have to admit I’ve already worn it twice this week, and it’s Monday, so go figure!) and it’s available in numerous colour options. These fabulous brown sandals are the perfect style for a flattering silhouette, leg lengthening look and for giving your office #OOTD a professional polish.
As for the Red Paper Bag Shorts, if you’re bold enough to wear shorts in an office environment, then don’t be afraid to shout about it! I chose this eye catching bright pair with a flattering ‘paper bag’ waist detail to add a pop of colour to this neutral look. 
Dorothy Perkins have created a quiz for you to find your perfect workwear outfit, showing you some fabulous options and how to style them for a Summer office look. My workwear style is ‘Summer in the City‘ – don’t forget to tweet yours with #DPWorkIt to win a goody bag courtesy of Batiste!
