You’re going to see a lot of linen on me going forward because it’s really starting to heat up in my neck of the woods. We hit 95 degrees yesterday and since it’s not even Memorial Day, I’m expecting a hotter than usual summer. Today’s look is a gauzy linen outfit that could not feel cooler. Are my pants creased in the front? You betcha…because it had cooled off to a balmy 87 when we took these photos;)
I’m a huge fan of lightweight cardigans for spring and summer. They provide upper arm coverage for those who want it and keep us comfy when the air conditioner is blasting. Even an airy cardigan can feel too close for comfort on the hottest days so that’s when gauzy linen saves the day.
This cardigan is woven and gossamer sheer like gauze. I’ve never worn anything quite like it. The shawl collar and waterfall front keep it floaty so it swings and swishes when you move which is frankly, fun! I love clothes that move when I do. It’s pure white but looks lavender because it’s taking on the hue of the lavender tee and pale blue, striped linen pants under it. It’ll go with any and every color because it takes on the cast of what you see through it.
The long sleeves have a roll-tab band which keeps it sporty. It’s sized from 0-18, 16W. I’m wearing a small and it’s roomy enough to size down. They call it a Boatcruise long linen cardigan and I can see why. Picture wearing this on the deck of a ship as you cruise into a tropical harbor:) OK, I’m getting ahead of myself, but things are opening up a bit and limited travel is starting.
This tee hopped into my shopping cart next to the laundry detergent and paper towels on my latest trip to Target. It’s the most gorgeous shade of lavender and just $5! It’s available in sizes XS-XXL and 1X-4X. I’m wearing a small and could also wear a medium to have it a bit slouchy. Target has a great selection of tees and the prices are amazing so I stock up when I find pretty colors.
My linen pants are from last year, similar here, here, and here. Wide leg pants may not be for everybody, but I love the look and airy feel. Remember how elegant Katherine Hepburn looked in hers? Coco Chanel rocked them too so I know I’m in good company.
