While it may be very hot here, I always bring a light jacket with me since I tend to get cold when I’m inside reading or studying. This cardigan from Forever 21 is the perfect transition piece, and it’s so affordable. Granted, the fabric can easily snag on keys and bracelets, so it’s not the best quality sweater. However, I love how light and airy it is for the summer, and how comfortable and stylish it is (especially paired with shorts because the differing lengths give a nice contrast and silhouette). Bonus: Forever 21 is having a huge sale on their website right now, and shipping is free no matter how much you spend!
