Kensie sheer back sweater | H&M spotted playsuit | F21 metallic finish espadrilles

Things have certainly heated up over here. Summer has arrived at utmost strength, and all I feel like filling up my day with is any activity that coincides with water. Sprinklers, fountains, swimming pools, oceans, you name it. Which indicates that is time to break out the skimpy summerwear, but also play it conservative with a lightweight knit. 

This sweater from the darling Canadian label,  Kensie, did just the trick. It is a beautiful concoction of sheerness and open detail. I practically squealed when I saw it. I also got another knit similar to it in a vintage peach hue. Can't wait to get dolled up in it under the luminous rays of unending, heavenly sunshine.
