Summer cotton sweaters

Cotton sweaters for Summer. I have finally packed away my winter woolies. Summer took so long in coming and Spring. except for the blossom, seemed nonexistent. I have still kept a few of my lighter weight sweaters in summery hues in my wardrobe, just in case. However what I find to be incredibly useful during the summer months are cotton or linen/cotton mix sweaters. On a sunny but chilly day they add that extra layer, not to mention splash of colour. I also keep a couple in France see my capsule wardrobe post. The pink linen/cotton V neck (US link) I am wearing is a recent purchase from WoolOvers(US link).

I have teamed my pink sweater with a tie neck top from MeanEm. Mine is from last year.  White sneakers by kids(UK) 

Pink flower brooch I have had for many years. I found some interesting ones at Etsy


PS. The summer sales seem to start earlier and earlier. Here are a few that in consider worth investigating.

Harvey Nichols. Exclusive members only sale so you will have to sign up. Harvey Nichols is aspiration for me budget wise however I am interested in sale prices.

Feelunique. My go to site for all my beauty products. They currently have some excellent skin-care offers.

Finery have some excellent reductions on current stock.

Nordstrom. 40% reductions continue till 4th June.

    You are in the pink! A good change out of our home decor for the season always adds a bit of new without breaking the bank. We encourage our clients to “recycle” and “re use” even within their own homes. Or what about a swap with friend?

    I love cotton and linen sweaters in the summer. Our evenings are often quite cool, and it’s nice to have that layer. You look lovely in pink!

    I’m so glad you’ve gone with pink this year. It was made for you. 🙂 You’ve made me remember my cotton sweaters (3 of them) — in beige, navy, and cantaloupe. I’m pulling them out now. 🙂

    I think pink if good for all women if that is what you like to wear. I bought myself a pair of pink trousers a couple of weeks ago and are very pleased with them.
