Let’s face it. This time of year that’s about all you get: chilly moments. But those sweet, brief lapses in heat do indeed come. Especially if you’re out at night …maybe catching lightening bugs with grandkids or sitting on the lakeshore dock with friends. And when the sleeveless shirt you’ve been wearing all day no longer feels sufficient, it’s time to reach for a soft summer sweatshirt. I’ve got just the one for you!
I’ve actually slipped my heathered sweatshirt over a sleeveless tank or swapped it in for whatever I was wearing several times recently. This soft 80% Cotton, 20% Polyester sweatshirt is no longer available in the geranium pink I’m wearing, but they still have it fully stocked in the equally pretty coral buff heather.
I’m wearing the sweatshirt in a size medium for a TTS fit.
I’m wearing my heathered sweatshirt with the same denim shorts I wore in Monday’s post. Unfortunately they are almost sold out. (Well, duh. The sale price is pretty amazing!) However, I have a sweet alternative for you!
You know there are going to be some great sales this Independence Day weekend. But Loft has already shot of the fireworks! They’re already offering 40% off these Frayed High Rise Skinny Bermuda Shorts In Medium Vintage Indigo Wash. And they look great! These Frayed High Rise Skinny Bermuda Shorts are still available in most sizes, too. But they’re also available in a darker indigo wash.
We snapped these photos when we were in Columbus visiting our kids this past week. So I was wearing my Tory Burch Howell lace-up sneakers. I don’t generally wear those in blog photos because they are a pricier shoe. But they’re extremely comfortable and my first choice in “real life.” I wear a TTS 9.5 and they come in all white with white trim and orange trim, too.
I didn’t even bring a handbag to style with this sweatshirt outfit. And I kept my jewelry minimal and classic. I’m wearing my classic gold hoops and a favorite Gorjana necklace. My necklace is sold out, but I also enjoyed wearing this Gorjana Super Star Pendant necklace…until I passed it on to my daughter.
You may or may not get a lot of wear out of a summer sweatshirt like this one where you live. But if you’re heading to the mountains, a lake or even the ocean shore this summer, I suggest you pack a similar sweatshirt. I’ve gathered up a few others to choose from in the shopping widget below.

Let me ask you a question, dear gal. Do you ever use the words “ought to,” “have to,” “I should better” or “I should have?” Sure, those are pretty average, normal words and you absolutely can use them. But be careful. I’ve found that often when I hear those words in my head or on my lips I’m slipping into a sort of legalism.
Legalism is anything that we think we should do or someone else tells us we need to do in order to be approved. Whether we’re jumping through hoops to get to heaven or we’re checking boxes in order to measure up to someone else’s standards, legalism is always a dead end street. Why? Because we can never do enough or often enough or well enough or consistently enough to make the grade. Don’t fall into that trap, dear sister. Instead, stand firm in the grace of God.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
