Linen is the easiest, breeziest thing to slip on in the summertime. I don’t even care that it can look wrinkled either! It adds to the casual beach rumple that I look forward to every season.
However, this linen jumpsuit from Rachel Pally kinda defies the odds. It basically does not crease, looks pulled together, and leans you out. Plus, it comes in this perfect summer cream color that I adore.
I also love this simple striped linen shirt that I tuck into or waist-tie with a pair of paper bag shorts. Here’s my styling trick: I scrunch up, then tuck and fold the sleeves when I am working in the kitchen or garden and also unbutton it pretty low to reveal my necklaces or a peek of a bralette—this way it does not look like the volume of the shirt is swallowing me up.
Lastly, if I have to make it to a (Zoom) meeting (i.e. the top half of my top body needs to look like I mean business) then I throw on this baby blue blazer from Sablyn with a chunky chain.
Linen is soft on the skin, breathable, and makes you feel floaty on even the hottest of days.
