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.

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?

I wore this for a shift at Corset, and felt marvelously comfortable all day long in my jersey dress and bronze flats. Next to utility jackets, metallic flats are the item I recommend most to my clients. I veer away from the mirror-shiny ones, but subtle bronzes are amazingly versatile. I’ve had this pair for a couple of years and it never ceases to amaze me how many outfits they complement.

Are you a fan of the metallic flat? Or sandal? Do you stick to golds and bronzes or go for pewters and gunmetals?
