I find myself running around during the summer so I like to have tried and true staples that I are easy to throw on and will look fresh all day long. Here are a few of the pieces I've been wearing lately...
This sweater is the perfect layer for a cooler summer day because the knit is loose enough that it breathes in warmer temps but keeps you comfortable in over-air conditioned spaces. I love pairing it with boyfriend jeans while dressing up an otherwise relaxed look with these zebra print d'orsay flats.
I bought this watch immediately after totally falling in love with my best friend's version while visiting her in Philly. I've gotten a ton of compliments on it and she loves hers so much she bought one for her boyfriend (yep, they're unisex and affordable).
I've been living in these jean shorts and light-weight cream sweater (similar here). I love pairing them with two of my longtime go-tos, aviators and pearls. I've worn aviators ever since my stepdad gave me a pair of his in the 8th grade. I've since upgraded to my own pair but still love how classic and versatile they are. Like aviators, pearl studs are staples in my wardrobe no matter the season. My mom made this pair (yep, there are some major perks to having a mom who is also a jeweler) but you can find a similar pair here.
The whole shebang is the perfect get-up to sit outside drinking iced tea reading a manifesto one of my dear friends recently sent me. If you're not familiar with Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche check out either one of her incredible Ted Talks - they're life changing, promise.
