I've been going more of the bohemian route lately with my outfits, it's been ungodly hot for the past couple of days and I work in a second floor office with no AC. Bohemian is really the only option when you're working in an 85 degree office. So I was thrilled to wake up to cooler weather this morning and be able to dress a little more...Classic. While I love flowey dresses and sandals as much as the next girl, I also love classic looks like this one. I have a little obsession with striped bateau tops, and was stoked to receive this top from ModCloth. I loved the unique take on a wardrobe staple, the fabric is actually rayon (so much lighter and breezier than cotton), and the stripes are made of threaded ribbon, rather than printed on. I paired it with black sailor shorts and classic flats and threw on a cropped trench to walk to work in (not shown). I had an important meeting this afternoon, so I was happy that I had gone the more traditional route.

Life has been changing a lot lately (which I will get into in another post), which has me thinking a lot about this blog. Orchid Grey is almost a year old (June 10!) and it's come a long way since it's inception. But what about the future? That's where YOU come in! What would you like to see more of on this blog? Daily Style? Art? Inspiration? How-to's? Something else? Let me know! I'm so excited for what the future holds for this blog, and after a week or so of slacking, I feel newly motivated!

PS- It's almost the weekend!
