Summer Essentials: The Summer Knit

Hello everyone! I hope you are all enjoying some beautiful weather and summery festivities where you are. Its been gorgeous in my hometown and I’ve been getting tons of sun, eating my favorite summer foods and lounging around in some pretty cute summer looks.

Today, I am continuing with my summer essentials series with my second go-to warm weather item: the summer knit. Now, now, I know what you may be thinking: Knits? In the summer? Yes! But I’m not talking bulky cable knits people; I’m talking light, breathable and airy summer knits. These pieces give the phrase sweater weather a whole new meaning, so take notes people: this is how you do a summer knit.

I picked up this adorable mini dress from Zara last summer in Boston while in town for Boston Ballet’s Summer Dance Program. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to get it. It was such a unique and interesting piece, I knew I’d get great wear out of it and could style it a number of ways. For this look, I kept things simple by pairing the knit with my Adidas Stan Smith sneakers and a bright blue Marc Jacobs cross-body. I kept jewelry minimal as well, layering two, dainty silver necklaces to add some metal.

If the weather was a little chilly, I would throw a cropped denim jacket over the dress and swap the Smiths for a pair of black booties.
