J.Jill Simple 120 short trouser skirt in Heather Grey
I don't know if I actually like these pieces; I don't work in a suit office, and I'd rather the skirt zipped in back. The jacket is a bit overly conservative...and I haven't seen any of this stuff in person—there are other washable wool pieces in 'Jill's "Simple 120" collection, including pants, majorly long skirt, shorts even...it may well all be fug, or fly to pieces when actually laundered in a machine.
Nitpicking aside, it's great. Any real reason you can't develop washable office clothes?
J.Crew Lace-Over Tank in Taupe
Kindly allow me to throw in, re my current J.Crew drool list. This had to catch my eye...what do you really do when you see something irresistible? Do you just stand there while your eyeballs pop out of your head? muses
It's cotton, making it easier to maintain than silk, yet perhaps it's sufficiently pretty to work in a biz-cas office setting. Say on one of those sweltering summer days, when you're rifling through your closet, wondering what's gonna work. Could this be 2011's "Bettina Cami"?:
