Worn Cardigan: Gap, blouse: Nordstrom Rack, shorts: Banana Republic Heritage Collection, wedges: Steve Madden, handbag: Coach, watch: Tourneau, bracelets: mostly thrift stores, one from Park Lane, layered necklaces: one from Banana Republic, one from Park Lane.

Details Although I’m thrilled to be in shorts now that the weather has caught up for my desire for summer, I must say I think I have the whitest legs in town.  And to think I put on some of that Jergen’s Natural Glow today…. Clearly not visible in these photographs.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with layering jewelry, and coming up with new and interesting combinations has been an interesting challenge. Bracelets and watches have been the most fun to throw together as I search through the last of the spring sales to find cheapie little layering bracelets. Shopping my own jewelry box of thrift store finds has also yielded some unique combinations like today’s outfit. I’m also loving my collection of summer platforms (and by collection I think there are 2) because that extra height on the front end means they are tall without being uncomfortable during a summer evening of walking all over this gorgeous city. Is this a business in the front, party in the back metaphor waiting to happen?  Oy.

What are your favorite items to pull out for summer wear?
