A muted colour palette is the perfect way to transition from season to season and month to month. I love something light and neutral-toned for the summer months. Although a knit dress isn't necessarily the smartest choice for one of the hottest months in Toronto, the cream colour softens up the look. With some experimentation, I learned that knitwear goes really well with silk, especially when the shirt is white. I liked the idea of cinching my waist so I tied a knot with the ends of the silk shirt for an easy and effortless look. And to complete the outfit, I added a timeless crescent-shaped bamboo clutch, which is both beach and dock appropriate.
