The Sleeve Blues

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m actually in a van with six other dudes participating in the Madison to Chicago Ragnar Relay today (and tomorrow). But, I want you to know I actually wore this outfit to work AND class last Thursday and felt so preppy. I loved it.

Blazer – J. Crew (same on sale!) | Blouse – J. Crew (similar) | Jeans – Express (similar) | Shoes – Bandolino (similar) | Necklace – Express (same)

I love the way this outfit turned out with all the blues and the pearls. The only downside is that I realized that I have no idea how to wear a long sleeved shirt under a blazer. I prefer three-quarter sleeves so I roll up everything. This makes putting a blazer on over a shirt rather difficult.

So, here’s what I did:

1. Leave the sleeves of the shirt unrolled

2. Put on the blazer

3. Roll up the sleeves of the blazer and push them up as high as they can go on your arms

4. Roll up the sleeves of the shirt

5. Pull the blazer arms down and carefully pull them over the rolled up shirt sleeves

It’s quite the process and made it so I didn’t want to take off the blazer even when I got warm. So, I’m open to suggestions!
