High summer generally means I wear a lot of white pieces, and lots of breezy, gauzy linen pieces to beat the heat. It’s generally warmer here in Connecticut than it would be if we still lived in Michigan, so being cool and staying safe in the sun is more important to me than ever before. I hope Summer Essentials Volume 5 inspires you to pick out some new favorite pieces for warm weather, or to revisit some of your wardrobe favorites, and get out to enjoy the sunshine!
Summer clothing styles are far and away my favorite seasonal clothing. I just love the lightweight, billowy fabrics, the intricate details, botanical patterns, crisp, cool whites, and reflective metals, and since summer is the most common time for me to enjoy these styles, aside from the occasional winter getaway, I can’t tell you how excited I was to pull some of these beauties out of my closet and enjoy the warmer weather after the summer solstice. Below is volume 4 of my summer essentials. I hope these inspire you to have a beautiful, stylish summer with a few new pieces, things you already own and love, or a mix of both.
