How to keep warm at work in Summer

We’re having some proper Summer weather in Australia at the moment. The only trouble with this I find, is that corporate offices tend to blast the air-conditioner on full resulting in near-arctic conditions at one’s desk. I don’t understand the extremes; is it so that blokes can feel cool while still wearing their suits?

When it’s warm outside, I like to dress accordingly so that I can enjoy the weather during my lunchtime walks. Do you make sure that you’re taking breaks from work to catch the suns rays? My Dad is on doctor’s orders to get out of the office and do so. In case you’re wondering why this is important; the suns rays helps your body synthesize Vitamin D (from cholesterol!) which helps one absorb calcium.  This BusiChic, is very important for bone density; lack thereof can lead to problems like rickets and osteoporosis.

Anyhow, how does one achieve this balance of enjoying the fine weather and then keeping warm when back in the cold confines of the office? Take a look at today’s BusiChic!

 

A warm capelet layered over the top of a dress in a lightweight fabric keeps a BusiChic warm in the office and can be easily layered or removed when one escapes the office to enjoy the weather!

Business Chic Marilyn wears oversized Jackie O -style sunglasses which adds a touch of glamour to her work attire.

A work bag that is chic enough for all occassions.

Business Chic open toe black patent leather shoes are a great work staple.

Marilyn wears Leona Edmiston frock, Louis Vuitton bag, Prada sunglasses and Cartier watch.

Her frock is in a great print that will work for all seasons, I spy similar styles that Leona has on sale here and here.

Marilyn has added a chic fur-look cape  to ward off any chill. For a similar look, I spy faux pieces over here, in greybrown, collar form or tassled!

What do you think of Marilyn’s look? I’ll be honing in on streetstyle looks that are Summer/cold-office-appropriate this week. What do you wear to work and how do you deal with this conundrum?
