Summer sweater


I got some really good news last week - I was selected to be an Ambassador for St. Louis Fashion Week (#stlfw) this October! I have never been able to attend in the past, so I am extra excited to not only attend, but to be able to witness everything up close and personal! I was checking out the designers, and was really excited to learn more about Tess Giberson and shop some of her pieces. My search turned up this sweater, which I thought was absolutely perfect for the summer.

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (black version, budget option, budget option) | Sweater: Tess Giberson (black version, optionbudget option, ) | Bracelet: Chloe + IsabelShorts: Express (option) | Wedges: Sam Edelman (option, option)

Say what? Sweaters in the summer? Even as the temperatures encroach into the upper 90s, I still love loose knit sweaters like these because inevitably I'm cold indoors wherever we are at - restaurants, movies, at the house, doesn't matter! It's lightweight enough outdoors, but provides enough coverage to keep me comfy inside, too. And the sweater is an accessory to me in and of itself. A simple wrap bracelet and this studded bag was all I needed to complete my look. I felt like one of the girls from Laguna Beach in this outfit. I wish I could be frolicking around on the beach around a fire with my own version of Stephen Colletti.

    1. That is funny! I never even think to buy sweaters in the summer, but I saw this on clearance and thought it would be perfect to even wear now!

  15. Congrats on the STL fashion week honor! So cool. I too love summer sweaters (even though it's sweltering here now), but there's something about back to school and the upcoming season that makes me shy away from brights and don more muted, neutral tones. Great look!
