Sometimes, I think mid-summer dressing can be monotonous; it seems like the only options are dresses shorts. Rinse and repeat. (Note: no complaints from me, though--I dream about 88 degree days for about nine months out of the year!) Come July, I'm normally in a clothing rut. I'm hoping this lightweight vest will help me spice up the ol' wardrobe; it's the lightweight layering piece that I probably don't need--perfect!
