It’s no secret, Charlotte is notorious for its humid summers. And the real August hasn’t even hit us yet. While we may enjoy the weather on our days lounging by the pool, there’s no denying it: the office still calls during the week for many of us. And wearing skimpy tops and shorts are a no go. Finding the perfect balance for a work outfit that helps you stay cool and look stylish and office approp at the same time can be difficult. What to wear to work during one of the hottest summers on record?  We went to the local boutiques for their recs:
