At this time of year, I'm all about being laid-back and savouring every sweet moment of summer. Though the temperature's steadily climbing and the layers are finally coming off (Hallelujah!) sometimes a little dress or shorts just don't feel appropriate throughout the week. A light-as-air open-knit sweater in a cool shade of white (worn over a white tank) and easy linen-blend pants are effortlessly chic and perfect for everything from a lunch date to a day at your air-conditioned office (assuming your workplace's summer dress code isn't super strict). Throw a few cognac accents and some fun zebra-print wedges into the mix and you've got a look that's carefree yet totally put-together. Voilà!
