I have to be completely honest with you… I never quite understood people who would wear long sleeves in the summer. I’d see these people and immediately shake my head. What could they be thinking? It’s hot outside for goodness sake!! I mean don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I have never wore long sleeves in summer, of course I have … prior to my job going business casual I didn’t really have a choice … but to make an actual fashion decision to wear long sleeves in the summer? Well, that would be ridiculous, right? Right…?
Yeah, I’m not so sure anymore. My fashion rules have definitely evolved over time… in particular since starting the blog. I am completely ok with long sleeves and shorts now (which was absolutely laughable to me just a few years back), blazers with shorts and yes, even the summertime sweater. I would have never worn any of these things 3 years ago… it would have seemed so silly to me. But I love this look now!
I picked this sweater up from J. Crew initially simply for the fabulous print (polka dots!!) and the beautiful color combo (mint and blue) but once I tried it on, I loved it even more so because it is so lightweight. Absolutely perfect for a summer day out. I wore this look to an afternoon movie matinee the other day… it was just fine in the humidity of the day (and it kept me comfortable in the chilly theater).
What do you think?
