With the Del Mar race season back in full force, it’s never appropriate to look anything but your best. A persistent issue with me and my friends is whether we’re going to bring a jacket along when we head out. The answer is always YES! You never know if you’ll get chilly, and the last thing you want to do is drink in order to stay warm. Drinking to stay warm is a great way to end up being the “sloppy girl” at the end of the night. So, get your priorities in order, think ahead and avoid the future whining.

It’s definitely unusually hot in San Diego this summer, but the ocean breeze has its cooling effect, and so it’s smart to bring a lightweight wrap. Wraps and cardigans are easier to tag along than jackets because you can stuff them in your bag, or drape it around you without feeling like you’re wearing a parka. The lightweight wraps I choose for the summer are lighter and brighter materials that add to the dress, not take away from the sexy look. The sexy part is that they sort of drape over the body-- a laid back, confident look. Plus, sometimes it’s nice to walk in somewhere with something to take off…

It wasn’t as easy as I thought to find some nice wraps. I guess I forgot where I accumulated mine over the years. With some searching, sure enough I found some wearable and very useable wraps for you ladies. My first choice is from Victoria’s Secret, where else is there to go to find sexy? This sweater wrap is perfect for a day and night out on the town. It’s soft, thin and elegant. Wearable and easy to store everywhere, this is a must have for diva’s night out. The Victoria’s Secret Soft & Sexy Sweater Wrap is made from a Cotton and Cashmere mix, now that screams luxury!

I’ve been checking out Newport News a lot lately. They have some simple pieces women need as staples in their closet. I adore the Wrap Cardigan I discovered on the site, especially in the Citrus Yellow color. This wrap has a lot of personality, so it would look wonderful with a plain-Jane outfit underneath. It’s a lightweight cotton cardigan, therefore it’s easy to stuff in a bag and won’t be a burden to wear or carry around. Much of its character is because the front is longer, and has a ruffled bottom with a flawless perfected drape over the shoulder. This wrap will give you the presence of an angel and the presence of a vixen when you take it off!

Not to gear away from sexy or anything, but sometimes less is more. In this case, this Gap Long Wrap Cardigan is very smart to have on hand in the car or office. It’s a thin cotton material and it works well with pants or some cute shorts. I like how it’s a baggy comfortable sweater. I couldn’t say it better than the description, “luxurious length makes it a versatile essential.”
