Friday Favorites: Ruffled Shrugs

There are pros and cons to living in a region that has four seasons. I've never lived in any other type of climate, and I know what to expect each time the weather changes around here. In the summertime here in the DC suburbs, the forecast is much the same every day. "Hazy, hot, and humid with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms". When the heat and humidity are oppressive (and even unhealthy at times), I tend to stay indoors. Of course I'm dressed for the outdoors in a tank or short sleeved top, so I get chilled when the air conditioning is blasting. I try to dress in layers this time of year~ and one of my favorite accessories is a ruffled shrug. Falling in loose layers over a tighter top, these shrugs fit right into my favorite category of "fun and functional" accessories. Any of these three pieces would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe!
