Including three pieces in an ensemble looks polished, but it’s not always comfortable when the temperatures climb. This Portofino shirt serves as a very light “jacket” over a cami and white jeans. One or two light neutral colors can look elegant when you add a few accessories in related colors.
The gray and white color palette was cool and comfortable for a recent casual meetup. It was 90 °F that afternoon!
Investing in a small wardrobe of classic accessories can elevate any look for years to come. Trendy colorful pieces can be limiting and too memorable. This week, I am showing you the treasured pieces I reach for almost daily. Again, I carried my gifted Teddy Blake bag (here). The other elements are at least a year old, so I’ve linked to similar items. As always, referral and affiliate links in my posts may result in a small commission for me.

The lightweight silver and thin leather lariat necklace can be worn in many different styles and even bracelets. It is from Beauty in Stone here. Use the code SAS10 For $10 off any item.
My gifted classic Nordgreen watch, a ring, and the fabulous gifted lariat necklace, along with small pearl stud earrings, provided the perfect finishing touches. When I wear a necklace, I only wear small studs to cover my piercings, and I always opt for bolder pieces over delicate ones. Tiny chain necklaces could be mistaken for another wrinkle, so I don’t embrace that trend.
The Nordgreen watch is the same one I told you about here. I’ve been wearing it every day! The mesh band is perfect for hot weather. Nordgreen is offering you a discount code (SUSAN15).
All this week, I’m showing you classic basic wardrobe pieces styled for summer with timeless accessories. Similar items can be located in many shops, at any price point, and may already be in your closet. Thank you for your comments and suggestions. Many of you asked for more light neutral color combos, less knit fabrics, and more hot weather style suggestions. I’ll share an even more casual summer look on Friday.
