Finally there’s a sense of reprieve from the absolute madness that has been this summer’s weather. Finally the feeling of ‘hey, maybe I won’t melt on my way to work today.’ Or even better, knowing that maybe, just maybe, your makeup will last you through the summer commute.
So what’s the first thing I do to celebrate (ever-so-slightly) cooler temps? I wear a sweater, of course. But not like AN INSANE SWEATER, but like, a casual lightweight one. This one from Banana Republic is maybe the softest sweater of all time. Come Fall, I’ll be layering it with my oversized blazer and more denim jackets. But for now, expect to see it worn on repeat on cooler summer evenings with my favorite boyfriend shorts or these lightweight trousers.
A little behind-the-scenes secret: I actually wore this to work with a longline black blazer, but switched it out for a denim jacket for a lunch with a few friends at Malmaison, one of my favorite little spots in DC. I love how one item can totally change the look and feel of an outfit. This one from the J.Crew outlet is a great price and has a slightly oversized fit, which makes it work perfectly with sweaters.
And then there’s the bag. YOU GUYS. I’ve been in love with Cuero & Mor since their inception a few years ago. Their founders are the most wonderful people of all time and their bags are minimal perfection. I had my eye on this bag a few years ago, but kept putting off the purchase until it was sold out. I was devastated. So I scoured eBay for months and FINALLY someone listed this bag, the exact style and color I wanted. So I snatched it up and have been wearing it ever since.
Banana Republic sent me this outfit for me to try out, and I loved it! It was fun trying a bright color for once - and I got a ton of compliments on it! All opinions are my own.
