To my surprise, there’s been a top-up of fresh Summer merchandise at retail for this time of year. Retailers seem to be fulfilling the need for appropriate seasonal clothing because long and hot Summers are a reality for much of the US. 

The following items caught my eye on my shopping rounds last week. I’ve seen most of the items on a person and can vouch for their fit and fabric. I’m besotted with Utility Pretty, and got the Embroidered Utility Slim Cargo Jeans in olive. They are not jeans, but lightweight casual cotton pants, which are hard to find in a world full of jeans and leggings and very little in-between.
