Summer Sweater

While this weekend is hot and humid, last weekend was a rather cool weekend in Chicago. It was completely pleasant during the day, but by the evening it was pretty chilly and had me wanting to throw on the nearest sweater I could find. I think it can sometimes be a challenge to dress for these sorts of days in the summer — I want be in bright summer colors, but also want to stay warm!

Last Friday my mom and I went to Lincoln Park for dinner. Looking like the evening temperatures would be in the sixties, I wore a light pink sweater with white jeans to try to keep a bright look but still be comfortable in the cooling temperatures. We had dinner at Santa Monica Summer House which has a fun, summery and open air vibe. Eating in the main dining room (appropriately called The Vitamin D Room), the bright, tropical atmosphere helped to distract from the cooling temperatures just outside the door. The sweater was the perfect weight for walking around Lincoln Park after dinner when it dropped into the high fifties. We even popped into the new Lincoln Park Serena & Lily store – so cute!

 I have this sweater in both pink and in white and navy stripes and have found that they are increasingly my go-tos for spring and summer. Easily worn with jeans for a casual look or with my Lilly travel pants for a work look, it's lightweight and can always be accessorized. With its soft and comfortable fabric, I almost wish I had picked it up in a few more colors, too!

What's your favorite sweater for the summertime?
