It only took 2 months, but it’s starting to finally feel like summer in Chicago! With that being said, dressing for the office sometimes poses as a problem because the days of sweaters and light jackets are dwindling but I’ve still got to look professional.
I was recently introduced to Beckett Simonon, a beautiful leather shoe company that makes quality leather dress shoes, boots and sneakers that can be worn year round. I put together a summer work outfit that references summer but with a workplace twist.
I love how the much detail was put into the shoes with the stitching and design that I thought they’d be perfect with a khaki suit pant and then for a little pop, this tropical brown and purple floral print shirt. To make this more “summery” a matching bandana I found in Atlanta pulled it all together. Classic on bottom, less traditional on top.
In terms of the shoes, they are seriously STUNNING. Even though some dress shoes scare me, for fear of me ruining them, they’ve been holding up and are extremely durable. For added comfort, an insole was included.
I’m wearing the Yates Oxford Broques which can be found on their site here.
I’m excited to wear these throughout summer and fall and can’t wait to check out what Beckett Simonon has in terms of boots later this year!
Hope everyone has a very happy Friday,
