Summer Sweater and Scallops

Even though we are currently in the dead heat of summer, I still have some lightweight sweaters in my closet. Seems crazy, right? Well when it is super hot you can count on every store and restaurant to be freezing cold. This loose-knit lightweight sweater is perfect for those chilly nights (or restaurants.) For the season I paired it with these white scalloped shorts which I have been wearing non-stop. The sweater will be in rotation even more when the temperatures drop….if that ever happens!
I picked up both of these items recently from J.McLaughlin, which just opened it’s doors in Greensboro (301 State Street, Suite E). I was so excited when I heard they were coming to my city. They always have such nice, quality pieces that can be worn time and time again. Whether I’m looking for that perfect wrap dress or a tie for my guy, J.McLaughlin will have those classic pieces I am looking to purchase! If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by their quaint and chic store! If you’re not in the area you can find a store near you here

  3. What a great summer sweater! As a guy it's hard to find something like this, but I love seeing someone who can pull off a 'summer sweater' well!

    Also, I see that you linked to the David Yurman kid's bracelet. Does that work well with petite wrists? I normally can't wear open cuffs because they fall off!
