The Perfect Summer Sweater

Summer is approaching and for many of us that means bringing out all the cute summer dresses, shorts and tank tops hidden in the back of our closets.

However, if you live in San Francisco like I do you know that summer doesn't necessarily mean warm weather...in fact, summers in San Francisco can be very very cold. That's why I was on the hunt to find the perfect sweater that could help me embrace a summery vibe in this beautiful foggy city. 

Lucky for me, Express was having a HUGE sale over Memorial Day weekend. Not only was the entire store 40%, but in the clearance section you could receive an additional 40% off...what a bargain, am I right?!

As I was looking around the entire stores (because let's face it, it's one of my favorites) I stumbled upon this Chunky Shaker Knit Sweater in the clearance section. Everything about it was perfect - the color, the knit material and most importantly the cut and style of the sweater - and I knew I had to have it! It was the exact sweater I was looking to rock around SF this summer. Plus, I couldn't beat the price: $14.99 with an additional 40% off...I mean what a steal, right?!

After bringing it home, I immediately paired this knit sweater with a pair of White Mid Rise Jean Leggings from Express, a gold Tanner Bar necklace from Gorjana, a Kate Spade watch and a brown leather wrap bracelet from Banana Republic

Not only will this outfit keep me nice and warm in the middle of SF's fog, but the colors embrace what the season is all about - being bold and bright. Even though a sweater isn't the ideal style for summer, when it's cold and foggy in San Francisco you definitely want to be bundled up. 

Cause let's be real, as Mark Twin never said...

“The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.”
