I am a creature of habit when it comes to shopping, which is why I have more cream sweaters and striped tees than I know what to do with. But what's one more, right? Especially if it's my dream combo of the two.

We love Band of Outsiders around these parts, and this lightweight sweater with rainbow stripes across the chest is a piece that I wish I could wear every day. I love the texture of the woven stripes and the color palette reminds me of something you'd wear to a roller rink in the '70s. 

Even though it's definitely too warm outside to be shopping for wool, I could get some summer milage out of it by rolling up the sleeves and pairing it with shorts for an evening of lounging al fresco. Yes, I know I am probably the only weirdo who wants to buy a sweater in the middle of summer, but hey, I'm going to embrace it.
