it’s all about spring and summer jackets today. it’s funny, but as we slip into the summer months with temps heating up many of us forego spring and summer jackets. whenever i pop one on in july or august there’s bound to be comments or emails “it’s too hot for a jacket!” which leads me to believe there a few of us who think spring and summer jackets collect dust all summer long. of course, if you’re spending time at the pool, lake or beach or simply lounging on a chaise in the hot summer sun you’ll forego this essential third layer. i don’t know about you, but i spend many an hour inside office buildings, malls, restaurants or movie theaters come june, july, and august. and baby it’s cold in there! which is the number one reason i have a selection of lightweight spring and summer jackets hanging in my closet.
this week i thought i’d write a mini-series about spring and summer jackets, sharing my must-have’s with you. and we’re kicking it off with this adorable cotton casual jacket from Talbots. this spring summer jacket last seen here was hastily thrown over a sleeveless striped tee from J.Crew Factory and green utility pants (old, similar here and here) from Splendid as mr. style and i headed to dinner.
this spring summer jacket is unlined features four patch pockets and cinched back waistband. pop the collar or let it lie flat. either way looks great.
the “it” handbag this year is round.
thank you so much for all the lovely comments and emails you sent about our son’s wedding. it was a perfect day in every way. but even more so with all the love and well wishes, you sent our way. xo
