Summer Business Casual and Everyday Summer Outfits To Copy Now

I’m back with another edition of What I Wore Recently. These posts usually span the two prior weeks, not including the current week. During this time frame, I’ve had time off work, time at work, the Fourth of July holiday and trips to the doctor for allergy testing, so I’ve got a mixed bag of outfits for inspiration. Most days at the office I can get away with more business casual attire than wearing full on business attire in the form of a formal suit.

Business casual and everyday summer outfits

I’ve divided this post into my business casual work outfits first and then everyday summer casual outfits. If you don’t need the work wear, scroll on down for cute summer outfits.

Work

Tan sweater+ black pants + white blazer

This white blazer has been on constant repeat. It’s the perfect summer piece. A pop of leopard adds a little interest to this. I don’t know what I’d do without my leopard heels and flats.

Work

Navy print blouse+ Khaki pants+ Navy Blazer

What color do you call this? Tan, beige, khaki? Whatever the color, these pants give every outfit a light summer feel.

Work

Gingham top + bright pants+ black blazer

This gingham top is fabulous on its own with its cute flutter sleeves but the fabric is soft enough that the top works under a blazer. Did I mention that it’s only $20?

Have you ever noticed some things don’t play well together? Certain fabrics and sleeves just don’t want to fit into a blazer. So annoying, but this top plays well.

Tip: If you have a navy gingham top and navy blazer, those pieces would work with bright colored pants/bottoms as well as black.

Work

Bright blue blazer + white blouse + navy pants

This was not what I normally think of when I think of blue on blue, but navy is such a neutral they any shade will go with it.

Work

These pants are a recent purchase and they are so comfortable. I already had them in a similar pair in blue. I don’t normally like a high waist or high rise, and these have a bit of a high waist, but they are super comfortable in spite of it.  I usually think of rust as a fall color, but it’s made a presence for spring and summer 2021 so I’ve embraced it. The white blazer helps keep summer vibes to the outfit. The top was a Nordstrom Anniversary sale purchase during last year’s sale and one I’ve worn often.

Work

Sometimes I pull random pieces together and they just fall flat for me. This outfit is one of those. This blazer was thrifted from Thred Up and even though it has a hint of grey and in theory should work with the pants, I find this look to be a little off.

Casual Outfits

Saturday errands

I took this photo with the hat, but at the last minute I ditched and went without it. The hubby and I were making a Sam’s trip for groceries and supplies.

Sunday errands

Beige tshirt + striped paperbag shorts

These are not the most flattering shorts on me, nor is this my best color in the tee, but it is a pleasing combo. The shorts are pretty comfy. Sometimes I wear things because I like them, not because they like me, lol.

Tee- Banana Republic; shorts- Old Navy; shoes-Kohls

I wore this to the first of several allergy doctor appointments I went to during the end of June and first of July. I knew they would be sticking my arms and leaving dots, so I took along the blazer for after the appointment.

Follow up doctor’s appointment

Red top + chambray linen pants+ sandals

We were approaching the July Fourth holiday so I went a little patriotic. The fact that I also needed to have a top that would easily allow the doctor to check the test patches on my back influenced top choices also. These sandals are from Kohl’s a couple of years ago. They have the best selection of sandals $16.99 and under every year and they hold up well.

Dr. appointment

Black top + camo joggers + sandals

I rarely wear joggers in the summer but I wanted something easy to travel to the doctor’s office in (it’s an hour drive one way). Doctor’s offices can be cool, so I opted for pants.

Top- old; joggers- Levis/ Amazon; sandals- Kohl’s

Around the house

Striped tee+ denim shorts+ sandals

This will forever be a classic summer outfit- denim shorts and a tee.

Grocery Store

I finally bought some fake Berks. A pair of these footbed sandals had been on my wish list for summer. I had some in college and loved them and I’m pretty pleased with these.

Fourth of July/home

Tie dye shirt + jeans+ sandals

tie dye and light wash jeans

Another rare instance of me wearing jeans in the summer instead of shorts, but these do have plenty of ventilation with the distressing. We were just hanging out at home so  they worked.
