cities on silk








When the weather outside is blisteringly hot, the last thing you want to do is layer -- however, I couldn't help myself today. I got this scarf/vest/sweater thing this past winter, and it's layering potential translates seamlessly through all the seasons. I love the oversized silk scarf feel, and the vintage cities stitched in elegant hues. Plus, its BFFs with my favorite summer wedges.
