My summer wardrobe includes a variety of very 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 very hot 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 jean style pants made from materials which are lighter weight than denim. Some of my favorites are made from cotton or sateen. These 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 this one from French Kande. I would wear this look to run errands such as going to the grocery store or the office supply store.
The cute blue kimono I am wearing is from my online shop here. I have several styles of cardigans and kimonos in lightweight flowing fabrics. Keep in mind that mine is a very small business which is just getting started so the selections may sell out quickly. Thank you so much for shopping with me here!
