When the warmer weather approaches, I normally reach for a dress or skirt to keep me cool while I am out and about. But do you ever find yourself constantly pulling on your hemline because it keeps riding up as you walk? Or you find that it is a wee bit too short for strutting up those steep hills in Georgetown? To avoid those problems on the sunny but windy days I am happy to have a pair of bright colored cropped pants and a flowy floral top. A neutral crossbody bag was high on my must-buy list for summer - in a crisp white color with a thick strap that won't show too much wear and tear (hopefully!) and metallic details so it can easily go from casual to dressy.

And you can't forget about the shoes! Don't be scared to wear colored heels - I see the pink as a neutral and it ties in beautifully with the colors of my top. I love anything with an ankle strap as it makes walking more comfortable - and you do not have to worry about slipping out and falling flat on your face! 

Do you like wearing bright colors during the summer or do you stick to a year-long black and white motif?
