To follow up with my last post about what I wear to work when I have no meetings, this post will be about what I wear for meeting days. When I need to look professional on hot summer days, I opt for a crisp shirt with its sleeves rolled up paired with a tie and tailored pants. Depending on the occasion, a jacket may be necessary too. I like wearing lighter colours for meetings not only because it adheres to summer trends, but also because it makes you stand out and appear more approachable. A guy in a pink shirt often looks much friendlier than a man in black – am I right?

Last month during summer sales I was on a hunt to buy new dress shirts for work. While shopping, I checked out Express for the first time in years after being lured in by their massive selection of sale dress shirts. As I tried on my first dress shirt from them, I was very impressed with how perfect it fit me – their size small fits me immaculately. After I went home with one dress shirt, I discovered that it also retains its shape very well after washing and drying. With so many redeeming qualities, I returned to the store and bought another five, this pink one being one of them. It helped that they were on a super good deal too. Always happy to add another store to my shopping trips!
