This one was hard for me because living in Southern California, our seasons don’t change too much. My summer wardrobe looks a lot like my winter wardrobe, with maybe a few more blazers thrown in. I’m also a horrible summer dresser, so while I came up with my fall/winter outfit pretty quickly, my spring/summer outfit threw me for a loop.
The fabulous LOFT ruffle cardigan! I love this so much, I got it in two colors!
Funnily enough, it had just stopped raining when I took my summer outfit pics.
Yes, I wear sweaters even in the summer! I’m always cold, and even if I’m not chilly just this second, chances are, the second I enter an air conditioned restaurant, or even someone’s home, I will freeze if I don’t have a sweater on. This LOFT sweater is thin enough that it’s quite comfortable in most summer weather.
Side note: I just recently made a huge mistake on the hottest day of the year in LA and wore a similar outfit with a cashmere cardigan…yes…hot hot cashmere. I was dying.
The skirt I’ve never shown on the blog before. I bought it over a year ago, and it’s been my go-to casual skirt. It’s made of sweatshirt material, and has pockets!
I took a que from the styling on the LOFT website and layered the ruffle cardigan under a jacket. It looks really great, and I think I’ve found my new favorite fall outfit. I’m on a kick at the moment where I love wearing my tweed Manolo Blahniks, so there’s no reason why they’re in this outfit besides the fact I just really wanted to wear them. =)
