Scarves can be tricky in summer, but I love them so much I always try to wedge a few into my warm weather outfits. When it’s cool, I prefer that my scarves cover my entire neckline, but for this breezy outfit I eased up on that guideline.

And my skull-print obsession continues. Redbubble reached out to me about their Art in Motion campaign, which focuses on street style-inspired, independent artist-designed clothes and accessories, and I was excited to dig in and learn more. Earlier this year I bought this tee from Redbubble, and when the first size didn’t fit they let me keep it and sent me a new one for free. So I was already a fan of their customer service, and eager to poke around Art in Motion. The items in this new collection are stellar, and I couldn’t resist this soft blush scarf with a subtle skull print.

This thrifted skirt has been a summer favorite for years. I just love the unexpectedly light, bright colors in that tartan and the swishy silk construction. I wore it twice in recent weeks, keeping the same jewelry in both outfits and swapping tops, bags, and shoes. This first was worn on a recent muggy day of meetings and writing at home. And that top is navy, I SWEAR, just like the navy in the skirt.

This version was worn for a day in the boutique, and I’m sad to say that the sweater bit the dust afterward. I’ve had it for several years and always forget that it starts out tight and after several hours of wearing begins to sag oddly. Especially in the sleeves, which were at least double in circumference by day’s end. So strange.

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.

Have you hit truly hot weather already? (I know some of you have!) What are your dressing work-arounds? Or do you just succumb and wear the fewest, lightest layer you can?
