yesterday, we featured a classic pinstripe blazer and skinny jeans for summer. when you live in warm climate like i do, sometimes jeans, no matter how airy they are, just won’t do. you’ve just gotta reach for something cooler. for those of you that follow the blog, you know that i love wearing shorts and skirts during the spring and summer months. they’re both a great way to stay cool but still look chic. for today’s OOTD, we’re talking skirts: a floral sarong skirt for summer.
i love wearing patterns during spring and summer, especially florals. nothing really says “spring” or “summer” quite like a beautiful floral pattern. am i right ladies? today, i’m celebrating summer with this floral sarong skirt from Ann Taylor. it goes with so many things, but in the spirit of “keeping cool”, i’ve paired it with a sleeveless mock neck. mock necks are such a flexible addition to any wardrobe: you can wear them with a skirt, pants, or jeans. and doesn’t the mock neck go great with these block heel sandals? one of my favorite parts of summer fashion is the shoe selection. so many fun sandals to mix and match, and block heels are some of my favorites.
with humidity levels high and temperatures floating in the mid 80s, we’re always trying to stay cool here in Athens. although there’s a temptation to retreat indoors to the air conditioning, i like to spend as much time as i can outdoors. even with my knee surgery, i’ve been gardening as much as i can this spring and summer. and i’ve even been able to take oscar out for walks on a semi-regular basis. it feels good to be back outside again.
how have you all been spending the spring and summer months? are you gardeners? do you go for regular walks? is it warm enough where you are to sit outside and enjoy the summer evenings? there’s so much beauty in the world around us, i’d love to hear how you’ve been taking it all in.
