Modern vintage summer style: in the office v.s. out of office

When it comes to modern vintage style, my closet is filled with all kinds of retro clothes.

So many modern vintage tropical summer style options, but…not everything is suitable.
On a warm summer day, I always bring a cardigan to the office because although it might be 25 degrees outside, it’s never 25 degrees inside. The same applies to hosiery. I always wear 8 dernier (summer) tights, because airconditioning ruins office life.
