Cool Breezes & Lightweight Summer Knits

I sometimes think I have the ability to control the weather with my blog post schedule.

Today’s post is all about a UK unpredictable summer favourite, those ever practical lightweight summer knits.

And right on cue the skies have clouded over and here I am reaching for exactly that!

I get cold when its twenty degrees plus out…

Even when the sun has been out all day long, I still get chilly in the garden of an evening.

Mind you, I am that person that feels the cold anywhere at any time. Mr OS has me pegged at legendary status for saying I’m cold when its twenty plus degrees out.

I generally feel the cold the most at the beach. It doesn’t matter how warm it is, if there’s a sufficiently chilly breeze, just looking at all the staunch British sun worshippers toughing it out in their swimsuits makes me shiver!

Oddly enough my legs don’t feel the cold as much as the rest of me (anyone else find this?), so you’ll often find me in shorts and varying degrees of a sweater.

When its a bit warmer, I’ll happily shed my favourite heavy knit hitters for something a little lighter.

And maybe even swap out the normal monochrome for a hint of colour – only blush as opposed to full on pink mind!

Sweaters & Cut-Offs
all summer long…

This hush Linen V Jumper is the perfect summer layer for cooler days when paired with my trusty Topshop cut-offs.

Not only that but it allows one more option for wearing one of my favourite style combos!

Below I’ve included a few more favourite lightweight summer knit styles should you be in the market for a cooler day cover up.

But first, an unrelated side note – have you discovered Quay Australia sunnies yet? They are incredible when it comes to style and value for money!

Style Stalking again…

I discovered the brand thanks to Damsel In Dior, whom I confess to style stalking all the time on a fairly regular basis. Jacey has been wearing the After Hours style on repeat.

I was pleased to see they have a UK online site as well as the US based one here and I also found a good selection at ASOS and Topshop too.

The quality is amazing. Try a pair and see for yourself – these are next on my list!

  1. Me too – I like to have a summer knit close to hand! My holiday packing generally includes a Hush jumper or two. I’ve a few lightweight cotton ones that don’t take up much room and are quite good about not creasing. They’re a handy extra layer on the plane too!
