I knew that headline was relatable! After all, who hasn’t experienced this? Summer arrives, it’s 80 degrees outside (as it is in NYC on the day that I’m writing this story), you finally figure out how to put a decent outfit together that you won’t sweat in, and confidently strut into work only to remember that your office is freezing and you, of course, have no jacket or sweater with you.
What’s a girl to do? You could shiver all day, go home and pick something up, try to borrow something from a co-worker… none of which are options I, personally, am particularly jazzed about, if you can’t tell. My solution? The office sweater. From late May through early September, there’s a cute-but-cozy hoodie at my desk at all times so that when the office AC hits, I’m prepared to strike back. To see the one that’s currently taking up real estate on my chair and, of course, to shop 15 other sweaters and sweatshirts I’m loving right now, just keep scrolling.
