If the heat has you wondering what on earth you can wear to the office while sparing yourself third-degree burns on your walk there, look no further. We found a few versatile (and light!) options that can double for both work and play. Bonus: you can hold on to your paycheck for these ones...

: Extra 25 percent off final sale items with code "WHYNOT." This Triangle Trio Ballad dress is the perfect blend of cute and casual with a fun, modern pattern. Throw it on over a bikini or spruce it up with a belt and a cardigan, like the model to the left. (Was $135, now $98.50)

The Limited: Up to 40 percent off select tops, buy any skirt, pair of pants, or shorts and get the second 50 percent off. This cuffed ankle jean can work for any occasion - pair it with pumps and you get a playful but stylish look, and throw on your flipflops for a put-together weekend outfit. Cash in on the sale by pairing your purchase with this flirty dotted skirt at half price, and you'll have your outfits set for both the week and the weekend. (Total price was $129.80, now $99.85)

Piperlime: 20 percent off. This Lazy Daze tote is made of lighter fabric, so it won't stick to you in the heat like leather alternatives. Its design is also versatile - you can dress it up for work or pack it with sunscreen and a good book for a trip to the beach. (Was $89, now $52.99)
