Summer Sweater



I realize this term may seem somewhat like an oxymoron, but for those slightly cooler & cloudy days, there is nothing better than a lightweight airy knit.  This one has just the right amount of stretch, slouch & sheerness to it, plus the color is so versatile.  Tuck it into a pencil skirt, layer over your swimsuit & cutoffs, or dress up with bright trousers as I did here...the possibilities are endless!





What I'm wearing:
Sweater c/o StyleGodis (here), LOFT trousers (last seen here), MRKT wedges, Vintage clutch & necklaces, Michael Kors watch, Bracelets: Tasha (similar) & Forever 21, Dockers aviators (on sale here), Lips: Revlon Lip Butter Candy Apple

I absolutely love the red pants on you! I've been waffling on grabbing an orangey-red pair (the only red pants I have are in rusty henna, from J Crew) but every time I see that bolder color paired with cream, my lusting starts all over again. Love this outfit, Kim!

LOVE the pants and how they are super long- it makes your legs go on for days/months/years! Also, love your nail color. Do you happen to remember what color it is??? I'm always looking for the perfect mango-y-coraly-peachy bright. That's not too much to ask, right???

I absolutely LOVE the color of those pants and how long they are. They make your legs go on for days/weeks/years. Also, totally in love with the nail color. Do you remember what it is? I'm always on the hunt for the perfect coral-y/peachy/mango-y bright.

So cute! I have these pants. I bought them (like an idiot) not long after my baby was born. I thought I was back in my regular size but I was wrong. Now I am swimming in them. My mom and I were looking at them last week to see how to fix them but since the zipper is on the side I can't fix it. Check out my post tomorrow because I am doing one on sweaters very similar to yours!

I wish it was cool enough to wear a sweater! Even at midnight it is still in the 80's!

I totally wear sweaters year-round. I mean, maybe not when it's above 85 degrees or so, but as long as it's breathable and 3/4 or less sleeve, I say go for it. This one looks especially summery!

I ABSOLUTELY agree! I freeze whenever I walk in anywhere! Unfortunately, Houston doesn't get cool nights in the summer, but the A/C works well ;) Great post! I did one on lightweight sweaters a little while back - check it out! http://www.fromproseccotoplaid.com/fashion-style/summer-chill/

Beautiful outfit! I love summer sweaters for those chilly nights. I have post a couple of weeks ago about wearing my open stitch summer sweater.

Great minds think alike - working on my post for tomorrow and I am wearing the same pants!

You look wonderful.

Love you outfit! I love my open stitch summer sweaters for those chilly nights. I blog about the same thing a couple of weeks ago. I agree that it is truly an oxymoron :)

Great minds think alike. I am working on my post tomorrow which features the same pants.

The sweater looks like it's not too heavy for warm days - and perfect for the office. I'm constantly cold so I would love a sweater like yours. Chic as always, Kim!

Love this outfit. Sadly for me it's way too hot & humid to wear sweaters in the summer. That clutch is so perfect. Love the colors and shape.
