Linen

IMG_2291 IMG_2294

Linen is one of my favorite fabrics for summer.  While a lot of summer dresses can be made in cheap looking and thin fabric, linen is a sturdy fabric that holds up well throughout the day.  Despite its thick texture, it doesn’t cling to your body but dries quickly in an unfortunate case of perspiration.  This linen fit and flare dress from GAP is an absolute dream.  It comes in a variety of colors and patterns and I love a good fit and flare silhouette.

Light & Bright

At the first sign of warm weather I dove headfirst into skirts and dresses; forgetting that early spring generally just means jeans and a top without a jacket.  Mother Nature was sure to remind me how overanxious I had been this past weekend, bringing the temps way back down away from the low seventies I had been enjoying so much a few weeks ago (sad face).  My coping method has been to keep the jeans and sweaters going strong but incorporating more seasonally appropriate colors like this blush and white combo.  Nothing is as good a mood booster as a light and bright outfit on a sunny (albeit chilly) day.
