I've had "I Guess That's Why They Call it June Gloom" to the tune of this song stuck in my head all week! I don't really think that makes sense. But today marks the first time we've seen the sun in a while! It certainly doesn't feel like June without it. 

I realize this looks really similar to the last outfit I posted. What can I say, I have a thing for floral dresses. Who doesn't? Last week's dress is backless and totally inapprop for work, this one felt super approp with the blazer over top and some heels. I rarely wear this blazer (I realized this because several co-workers commented on how professional I looked), sometimes I feel like the fit isn't great. The key here was that I cinched my waist with a belt, so even though the blazer is over-sized, I didn't feel like I was drowning in it. 

And if you were wondering- the clogs are on heavy rotation again now that it's warm! I wore them all last through last Summer (forealz: brown / black), and have completely decided I will invest in Hasbeens when these fall apart, because I love a clog heel THAT much. 

Are you guys having a good week?? It's a short one for me (I get Friday off for my birthday!) and in other exciting news, I got an intern at work today. Technically it's my team's intern, but I kept introducing him as mine, so now he keeps saying it! I can't wait to wave him off with one hand and say "Get me a latte!" Kidding (but seriously...)

Happy Birthday, Priya!!! :D

I've really enjoyed getting to know you through your blog, and I wish you a very happy birthday with load of success and happiness for the future! :)

I'm a huge floral person too! I really like the idea of belting the dress to help with the oversized blazer. Looks great you and I wish they would bring those clogs back! You've got me sold on those.

Have a great weekend celebrating!

Just reading this comment! You are the sweetest. So glad we have connected through blogging.

They actually have a model this year that is just as cute (cuter? Slightly different style, but still a clog. Check them out!!)

Hahahaha I love that you have an intern! How's that workin out for ya? My workplace was very casual too (we had to wear polos for goodness sake) so when I wore a blazer, I felt way overdressed and too professional. This one looks knit though which always makes me feel more comfortable!
