I often find it difficult to run up on pieces that are just as suitable for hot weather as they are to my taste. Summers past I've always tended to not put much into my summer wardrobe because it was never that important. But having worked all summer in New York, I quickly realized that needed to change. While in New York, I ran up on this white eyelet shorts and jacket set toward which I was instantly drawn. I think it works so well with the soft colors of the sand and water. Because I was on the beach, I styled it a bit differently that I typically would. In this instance, I really like the juxtaposition of the really dressy high-neck blouse paired with the swim top. Beachwear doesn't have to be boring.
