summer layers

Even though its 90+ outside every day here, inside it is air conditioned. Sometimes the rapid change in temperature messes with me, and I really need a jacket, even if it is just for a few minutes. One thing I learned growing up was to always have a jacket/sweater/cover up with me at all times in case I got cold. Here is what I wore out to brunch with BF this weekend. We ate outside so I wanted to dress lightly, but I wasn't sure what we were doing afterward, so I brought along a trusty cardigan.
Dress: Urban Outfitters, XS
Headband: Forever 21
Belt: Forever 21, XS/S (in brown here)
Necklaces: David Yurman (here) and Bon Ton
Cardigan: Ann Taylor (similar here)
I'm always cold at the office too - but even walking outside for 5 minutes (to and from work or during lunch) can be unbearable with a blazer or sweater on. Especially in the summer, I love to wear almost sheer blouses and use a sweater to cover them up during the day to make them more office appropriate (and to keep me warm in the freezing air conditioning). Did I mention we all have space heaters at our desks?? 
Blouse: Bebe, XXS
Cardigan: Banana Republic Factory, XXSP
T-shirt: Pac Sun, S
Necklace: Kendra Scott via Gilt (different color here)
Jeans: Abercrombie, 00R
Shoes: Nine West
You can't really tell, but my t-shirt was purple - I was trying out a semi-monochromatic thing.
Bracelets: unknown, unfortunately!
