All the Blues

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

A few Sundays ago, on a warm humid day in Chicago with a threat of rain, I joined my triathlon training friends for a 40+ mile bike ride. Even though it drizzled on us for the first few miles, we ended up having one of those perfect bike rides that gives you a bit of a high. We all stuck around the bike store after the ride chatting and drinking beer until I left to get ready to meet my friend Kelsey for brunch.

I tossed on this outfit because I’d worn it to work earlier that week and it was handy.

It’s interesting because Bri at Work Clothes, I Suppose, also got this scarf from Le Tote and thought it was a strange material. However, I really liked it! The only thing I didn’t like was that the dots seemed to be painted on instead of part of the actual fabric. It did give it some texture but I worried that they would eventually fade so I sent it back to Le Tote after wearing it twice.

I also recently got an email from Le Tote inviting me to be part of their ambassador program. I said yes because the requirements are what I’m already doing! Wear items from my Le Tote subscription, blog about them, and share those outfits. What do I get? Purchase credit so if I decide I love something from my Le Tote I can keep it.

In fact, I’m thinking about not doing any more shopping and only using Le Tote for the rest of the summer. Might be a fun experiment! Want to try it yourself? You can get your first month for only $25 if you use this link.
