Summer Days Turn into Summer Nights

As the sun goes down, so do the temps! As things cool off, or even when I’m out about and the AC is blasting, I always need a good go to layering piece. While most of us reach for the jean jacket, I found something else to try this summer. Aerie’s Down-To-Earth V-Neck Sweatshirt. It comes in 8 colors. They also have it in a crew neck version.

I love its weight. Not too heavy, but it will keep me from freezing while we stroll on the beach or check out our favorite restaurant. It will work well with cutoffs, and I can wear it over my favorite black sundress (see my post here from 5/18) too. I got it in two colors, Olive Fun and Medium Heather Gray. I don’t typically wear green, but I thought this sage color was perfect for summer. I can wear it with my cutoffs, my khaki shorts, white jeans, and of course my black leggings.

It’s a tunic length which is great to cover my bum while I’m wearing leggings. It’s thin enough to do a side or front tuck with my shorts and jeans. While it does have an oversized fit, I don’t think I would change my sizing. I like it baggy. I ordered a Large but if your looking for it to be more form fitting, I’d size down. It’s currently on sale at the AE site.

What’s your go to layering piece in summer? How do you mix it up? Can’t wait to hear from you! Love, TC
