For my work in a creative field, I need to be stylish but casual, since I do a wide variety of tasks during the day. In the fall and winter, I find getting dressed easy and generally wear some variation of jeans or leather leggings, ankle boots and a blazer/blouse/sweater. But in the summer it is so hard! I live in a hot climate and try to avoid jeans on the really hot days. Cotton dresses are great but some days dresses aren't practical for my job. I find it hard to not look too conservative( the j crew summer look) or too sloppy. Any specific suggestions? I may try some of the dressier summer shorts I've seen this year. Any other ideas for looking chic and being practical?
