Summer Sweaters: The Perfect Al Fresco Dining Accessory

Summer Sweaters. Seems like an oxymoron, I know, but seriously one of my favorite summer items. Okay, well, not for the daytime… I’m talking about those evenings where you dine al fresco, sip a little vino, and indulge on some delicious eats. Those evenings where you’ve gone all day in your favorite cut-offs +tee (or swimsuit for that matter), but need something a little warmer to get you through the evening (well, at least in my case…. I think I am cold blooded). For those days, I turn to lightweight summer sweaters (hence the name of this post). This sweater is a favorite of mine (I own it in olive too). The perforated holes allow air to flow in, while still keeping me at a comfortable temperature…. and the white makes it a perfect summer color. If a sweater isn’t quite your thing, I think a button up blouse is the perfect alternative to a jacket. I like this plaid option, as well as this oversized button-up and this button-up tunic. Or…. if you’re still not feeling those options, how about a cozy cardigan like this draped version (great price, lots of colors). Either way you go…. you’re sure to be über comfortable and look pulled together (a winning combo in my book).
