Sometimes, I long for a locale where there's a transitional fashion phase. For instance, a cool night breeze where you can slip on that light sweater over the dress you're wearing. Or, a chilly day where it's necessary to add a denim jacket to a maxi dress. Or, even being able to pair a sweatshirt with shorts like below (love this look, although it confuses my husband a bit).
Unfortunately, living in the south, I don't get to wear many transitional outfits. Spring - what spring?? The other day it was 90 degrees - ouch. So, as much as I crave those cute lil' summer sweaters, I just don't have much of a need for them. But, you who lives on the coast...up north...in the mountains...basically, anywhere, but the south...you def need these things. I'll go ahead and live through you on this one.
I just discovered this cute brand Lifetime Collective and they make the denim jacket above, and the sweater and sweatshirt below. (And why can't I make my hair do a top-knot like that, huh?) This brand is casual cool if I've ever seen it. The "Shame" sweatshirt ($87.99) shown here is actually my fav, and also comes in a gorgeous Clay hue. It's made of french terry with a light stone enzyme wash to give it that extra softness. If there's even one cool night around here - or maybe my upcoming beach vacay - I could wear the heck out of this, right?? Want. so. much.
P.S. I was just sent a pair of Sperry Top-Siders very similar to the ones she's wearing below, and can't wait to share with you the details. I loved them the instant I put them on my feet!
