Summer Loving

I haven't played with Polyvore lately, so I thought I'd put together a fun, versatile outfit that would be perfect for summertime shopping or going out, but with a few substitutions could work for any season. This is what I'd like to be wearing right now. If only money was no object (wouldn't that be nice?).

I like the relaxed, sporty fit of the T by Alexander Wang tank against the clean, polished lines of the J. Crew shorts. The Juicy Couture jacket balances out the proportions nicely and gives the look a bit of an edge. Keeping the entire ensemble monochromatic makes it seasonless and also really versatile, because you can use different colored accessories to create totally different vibes, like how I added a pop of color with the cobalt blue Rebecca Minkoff bag. It's in keeping with the hard, slightly moody tone of the outfit but keeps it from getting too dark or heavy. I kept the glasses, the Ray-Ban aviators, simple and classic, and then had fun with the shoes and jewelry. The Tory Burch sandals have a bit of a tribal vibe and pull together all the colors in the outfit, but are still practical and comfy. The crafty, Lanvin-esque vibe of the J. Crew necklace adds a whimsical touch to the ensemble and a bit of needed femininity, and I love that Alyssa Norton piece. It's like a grown-up friendship bracelet! The way it drapes across the wrist and mixes all those textures is so modern and fun.
