It’s finally starting to warm up here in Portland and while we love the warm weather it can make getting dressed for work a bit challenging. Finding a balance between appropriate work attire and not overeheating can be a job in and of itself.

When it comes to building your power summer wardrobe it’s all about investing in a handful of key items that, no matter what you wear with them with or how you mix and match them, you feel comfortable, confident, and professional.

Keep scrolling to see a few sustainable fashion pieces we’re adding to our summer wardrobe.


summer mules

When it comes to power dressing comfort is key. There’s nothing worse than wearing a super cute pair of heels and not being able to walk in them without doing the awkward “my feet hurt” prance.

As a gal who loves to maximize her wardrobe, I love a good mule that can be dressed up for the office but can also transition seamlessly into a night out with the girls. And the best part is, they’re comfortable enough to wear all day. No awkward staggering included.

Effortless dress

How cute is this dress and print. I’m all about effortless style especially in the summer. Anything light and flow I can throw on with ease is a win in my book. Bonus points that it can be worn in the office or on a weekend expedition.

simple jewels

Depending on your work environment, less can be more when it comes to your work jewels. While I’m all for making a statement, there’s something about simple, barely there jewels that seem to add a level of chic to any ensemble. Especially when it’s hot as heck.

white pants

White pants are the true MVP summer staple. Not only do they brighten up your wardrobe but they automatically look “put together” when paired with almost anything and are the perfect summer neutral. Dress them up with a flowy blouse and heels or with a jean jacket and cute flats for a more casual office vibe.

Your wardrobe options are endless with a midi skirt. The ultimate blank canvas, midi skirts are great for building work-ready outfits all summer long. Bonus points for adding a pop of color to the office.
