We’ve really only had a couple of hot days so far this summer, and I’m THRILLED. I’d much rather be cool than warm, and much rather be covered-up than exposed. Slightly sheer blouses like this one are perfect, since they offer the coverage I want but look lightweight and seasonal. read more

And that top is navy, I SWEAR, just like the navy in the skirt. read more
