Colorado summers are a peculiar season. One moment, the sun is shining brightly and you're reaching for sandals and a tank top. Then without warning, the clouds have rolled in, the rain is pouring, and you're realizing a white tank top might have been a bad choice.
When I took these pictures for WW last week, the weather was still deciding if it wanted to be summery. So I had to resort to my "sorta-summery" outfit of shorts and a tank, topped with a boyfriend cardi.
Since my current selection of shorts is mostly neutral khaki and denim, I had to add in color with my sweater and accessories. I've had this funky statement necklace for a few years and it definitely goes in the "worth-every-penny" category of purchase. It seems to go with everything and it reminds me of little artfully decorated sugar cookies. Yes, it always comes back to food.
The bag is also several years old, but it's the first purse I pull out when summer rolls around. If you're looking for a simple fabric bag (you can custom order in your favorite pattern combo!) then check out Elisa Lou!
With temps predicted near 99˚ today and tomorrow, this is likely my cardigan's last hurrah til fall. Colorado may have just decided it's summer after all. And me? I've decided that's an excellent reason to shop for some new happy-colored shorts (loving all the options here!). Oh, and eat sugar cookies.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
