Concrete Catwalk // Light Layers


This season, I'm springing for shorts and light layers... See why and find the rest of the outfit photos, after the jump!

One of the things I notice about my personal style as the weather starts to heat up, is that it seems trickier to create the quirky, layered look that I'm normally drawn to.  That's why pieces like these lightweight shorts, detailed tank & breezy kimono cardigan all make great staples... they are easily piled on without feeling heavy, and they keep me cool as the temperatures climb.Speaking of climbing temps, one of the things I'm most excited about for the upcoming summer is spending more time outdoors in our neighborhood!  We moved here at the beginning of last Winter, and as the seasons have changed, it almost feels like a new area all over again... G and I love exploring the parks and little pockets of nature amidst such a big city, and are especially excited about renting kayaks from the little boathouse you see behind me in the photos above.  I can't tell you how much more at home I feel living near a large body of water again, and we're so grateful that this little cove is just steps from our front stoop. :)

What outdoor activities are you looking forward to trying out this summer?
