Cool Summer Days | Khaki & Turquoise Outfit

Khaki jeans & turquoise florals | Cool Summer Outfit | Fake Fabulous

This outfit is perfect for those cooler summer days.
The days where bare legs (and arms) are not an option... brrr.

The kind of days you need to add layers, but don't want to give up that summer vibe completely!

{We get plenty of days like these in Scotland.}

A great way to keep an outfit feeling 'summery' is to keep the colour palette light and bright.
However, sometimes a light palette isn't practical.
Depending on what your day has in store, light clothes may be an unwise option!

For me, more practical (and forgiving) colours were needed, so I decided to wear these khaki trousers.

A pair of khaki trousers are perfect for any time of year!
And, when teamed with different colours, can create various season-appropriate outfits.
Khaki is such a versatile colour.

These jeans are a decent weight, and provided enough warmth to allow me to get away with wearing a pair of chunky sandals.
Faking a more summery look.

{Boots would have been a more practical option, as my toes were suffering a little!}

Adding a bright turquoise vest top, with a floral pattern, kept the summer feeling going.

My cardigan was essential for warmth, but light in colour, and quite a 'drapey' summer-weight fabric.
Much more easygoing than a jacket!

{However, I did take my denim jacket with me... and a brolly... you just never know in Scotland!}

  3. Love those khaki jeans with the sandals. When the weather gets cool in summer as long as my legs are warm, I usually okay. Not sure why. Hope you didn't actually need to use the umbrella... but as you said... it is Scotland.

  5. This is a lovely outfit and happens to be my particular favorite. Slim-fitting pants in a neutral, a colorful, patterned sleeveless blouse and a lightweight cardigan. While I won't be able to wear this ensemble until the temps cool off in September (it's hot here in NJ!), I look forward to it. You look beautiful in everything, but this blouse is gorgeous and a most flattering color on you. Love the pattern and all the colors. Sandals are so cute.
