Dressed for: Lightweights

Already Pretty outfit featuring Gudrun Sjoden tunic, clamdiggers, orange pumps, J.W. Hulme tote

Tunic – Gudrun Sjödén
Jeans – Gap, cropped by me (no longer available) – similar
Pumps – Easy Spirit via Opitz – similar
Bracelets – various – similar look
Earrings – Bijoux De L’Au Dela Jewelrysimilar
Bag – J.W. Hulme (no longer available) – similar look

We haven’t hit the true dog days of summer just yet, which means I want lightweight layers but still opt for some coverage. These cropped-by-me jeans have been a warm weather standby for years, but the airy printed tunic is a new addition. Leave it to Gudrun to create such a lively, unique print in a wonderfully summery cotton.
