Dear August, why must be so rainy? Anyone else slight sad by the amount of rain we’ve received already this month. I want at least a few more week of amazing summer weather before we hop into the fall season.
Unfortunately, I haven’t yet been able to figure out how to change the weather but I promise I’m working on it. Since the weather has been slightly unpredictable lately, I’ve start to pull out a few transitional pieces from the back of my closet to combat the hot/cold mood swings Chicago’s weather can present.
Currently I’m loving 3/4 sleeve dresses in light fabrics like this one from one of my favorite brands, Glamorous. The lighter fabrics keep me from man-sweating through the day when it still feels like summer outside, but the longer sleeves keep me cozy during the night time drop in temperature.
On a recent trip to visit Peggy on the west side, I took the opportunity to get matchy-matchy with my outfit. Stripes on stripes are a fun way to play up a relatively simple outfit and no one can wear too many stripes – am I right?
