Is it just me or is summer really starting to heat up? It certainly is getting much steamier in my neck of the woods. Thanks to that warmer weather I’ve found myself turning to shorts and pieces like a good summer hoodie more and more. Now as far as the shorts go, not just any pair of shorts will do. Lightweight linen is where it’s at. These striped J. Jill mixed stripes linen drawstring shorts are my new favorites. Not only are they uber airy and comfortable, but they go with SO much. The chambray blue color is basically a neutral. And what goes better with a neutral than a pop of color?
But before we get to the color, let’s talk about how to wear a summer hoodie. Along with shorts, they’re another one of my warm weather staples. It’s all about the material when we’re talking summer hoodies. This lightweight cotton tab-sleeve knit hoodie, for instance, is a perfect summer layering piece. You can rock it with shorts like I’m doing in today’s look, but you could just as easily wear it as a swimsuit coverup. You gotta love a good multi-purpose piece!
And that’s just what I’ve found Birkenstocks to be too…multi-purpose. Thanks to a knee injury I’ve had to turn to more stable footwear lately and I was pleasantly surprised to see how many options Birkenstocks offer these days. Take my fun pink Papillio Sydney Sandals for instance. I’ve been wearing them with everything from shorts to dresses!
So, what are your favorite tried and true summer pieces? Is a summer hoodie on your must have list too? And now that you’ve seen my latest summer style, head over to our Monday Mingle partners, Momtrends and Oh to Be a Muse, to see what they’ve been wearing.
