ATTAINABLE: Threadsence Sudden Surprise Crochet Sweater

There are some pieces that are just off-limits during certain times of the year -- for example, parkas in July. I just refuse. But sweaters are a favorite of mine because they're so multi-seasonal. This pretty open weave is perfect for summer, and the punchy color is brilliant. I particularly love the fun surprise in the back: a panel of floral fabric that makes this top truly unique.
Designers who are able to truly embody a season always amaze me. Cynthia Rowley pieces are truly representative of summer -- they're light, flirty, feminine, and oh-so-fun. Moreover, they can carry you from one summer occasion to another with ease: from a graduation party to a barbeque, a birthday party to dinner alfresco, these dresses will travel literally everywhere.
There's just so much to love about this pretty little frock. The print is so fun and bold -- I love how the zigzags contrast with the flowers, and the color stands out beautifully against the black and white background print. I'm also particularly fond of this shape. The defined waist, slightly flared skirt, long sleeves and -- of course -- pockets make this a dress truly to die for.
I'm a big, big proponent of the little white dress come summertime -- and this is such a fun take on it. The shape is just so flirty, especially the skirt portion -- it's light and pretty. And the seaming on top adds just enough structure and visual interest to keep the print from overwhelming the dress.

In yet another fabulous print, the shape steals the show again in this gorgeous little frock. The pattern has a slight vintage feel that perfectly matches the pretty neckline, sleeveless silhouette, and perfect piping that creates the most gorgeous structured shape, especially from the back. How perfect with a pair of chunky heels or with the addition of a blazer and pumps for work.
It's not often that I find a pretty blazer that can be paired with everything from shorts to jeans to dresses with ease. This fun jacket would be so playful over a black dress or basic pencil skirt and heels for work, but would make the perfect topper with jeans or tailored shorts and bright heels for a night out.
