My summer wardrobe includes various lightweight jackets, cardigans, and kimonos, which allow my arms and middle to be covered without making me feel too hot. The fabrics include crepe, almost sheer knits or polyester blends, and rayon. When the shapes float across the body, and the style is open and airy, I can wear the toppers even on a scorching day. I am always more comfortable with some coverage. I do not wear shorts, tees, or a tank top unlayered with flip flops because I do not find that look to be comfortable for my personality, more about that later in the week.
A loose-fitting tank top and a pair of soft, comfortable jeans form the foundation of many of my looks because I live in a temperate climate, and I usually work from home. The next layer might be a lightweight cardigan or a floaty kimono. The jeans are usually white or faded (but never torn) since lighter colors are cooler than the dark wash ones. I look for summer jeans. My jeans and this tank are from Chico’s. The sandals are by Montana via Dillard’s. The handbag and my watch are by Michael Kors. The necklace is from French Kande. I would wear this look to run errands such as going to the grocery store or the office supply store.
