I love when fashion breaks its own rules. Shorts in the winter, sandals with socks (still not convinced about this one), and for the sake of examples, last but definitely not least, the summer sweater. A cozy creature by nature, I love the draped feeling of a sweater pretty much all year round. Down in Texas having any kind of a “summer style” can be tricky due to excessive heat and the overwhelming desire to remain in ‘the buff’ whenever possible. But in the 95-degree shade of the summer I’m still willing to explore my options and embrace the summer sweater. Light and lovely, easy and breezy, perfect with shorts or thrown over your favorite maxi dress for an effortless summer chic .
