Spring & summer staples
May 21, 2014 § Leave a comment
I think it’s safe to say (ok now I hope I didn’t just jinx myself) that the cold weather is here gone for good. Temperatures have been averaging high 60’s to low 70’s, so it’s still a bit chilly for my tastes (I think I must have low body temperature…) but it’s a warm warm welcome from that horrid winter. I’m looking forward to mid 70’s-low 80’s, as that’s my ideal temperature, for both comfort and style. Too hot- and all I want to wear is a light dress with no accessories (jewelry sticking to skin—no bueno), and too cold…well, I just layer and layer till I look like a roly poly—and not a cute one. Slightly breezy and balmy spring/summer nights allow for creativity through light layers. I like to mix and match the basics below for an effortless, chic look.
The cropped jacket – Everlane swing trench / AE denim vested hoodie
The basic T – LOFT striped vintage cotton T / Madewell v-neck pocket T
The mini – J. Crew – cotton bell / Desire Clothing – mint pleated chiffon mini
The maxi – Double Dutch strapless maxi / River Island waisted maxi
