And the Cotton is High…

15/06/2011 § 3 Comments

I have what I like to call a “cute jacket addiction.”  Wherever I am shopping, I will make a beeline for the jackets.  Not coats, mind you — although I do enjoy those as well — here I’m talking about light jackets that could probably stand alone just fine in a Los Angeles winter, but wouldn’t stand a chance in New York in February.  But somehow that doesn’t stop me from continuing to buy them like there’s no tomorrow.

Even in the hottest months I’m trying to figure out ways to wear a jacket and will do so until I’m bordering heatstroke.  The answer to layering in the summer is keeping everything light and breathable: linen, cotton, and the like.

More than a little obsessed with pocket squares.

Wearing: Rugby Ralph Lauren khaki jacket // J. Crew button down
Juicy Couture pleated skirt // Minnetonka moccasins // Ray-Ban Caribbeans
Dad’s watch // Bracelets from the flea market

Same: sunglasses, shoes

Similar*: jacket, shirt, skirt, pocket square

*I had to take a bit more creative license with the “similars” since I had quite a time trying to find something identical to what I have on.  While you’re not getting the same symphony of khakis in the click-throughs, the general concept is the same.  Light, airy fabrics, a simple cotton jacket and a pleated skirt.
