The best pull-on-and-go summer tops
Most of the time I’m in jeans, and having a portfolio career means there’s a sliding scale of smartness. It also means I don’t have a life, but that’s another blog post. On the days when I’m working from home, I’m more thrown-together (half-dressed) but I’ll often have to nip out to a quick meeting or event – and this is where the pull-on-and-go summer top comes in. It’s the hot weather version of the jacket over a t-shirt, smart enough to pass muster with a favourite, old pair of jeans and more grown-up than a tee. Often a shell top or short tunic with pattern, embroidery or print to perk things up a bit. And mainly in blue, because that goes with denim.
One of my friends is a Velvet by Graham & Spencer fan. She turned up for our ‘business coffee’ the other day, in the perfect freelance uniform: pull-on-and-go top, jeans, loafers and a scarf. Neat.
