Temperatures Rising

Now that summer has arrived in Tacoma, it's so refreshing to wear thin, breathable fabrics and do away with layers.  I love layering, but I do look forward to the summer months when all I have to do is throw on a couple light pieces and head out.  These crochet shorts are a nice, breathable, summery piece.  These days I'm more of a dress kind of girl, when it comes to warm weather dressing.  Throwing on a dress is just such an easy route to go when it's hot outside, but shorts can afford the look of layering without actually putting on a bunch of layers.  What's your go-to hot summer day outfit?
