It’s no secret that linen knits are just about my favorite thing to wear in the summer. When this Eileen Fisher linen top went on sale, I wanted to try it but wasn’t sure about the shape. But I have another sweater in the same color that’s a favorite, so decided to give it a go.
I’m wearing XXS in the top, 27 in the jeans.
Eileen Fisher linen knit top
I took a chance, and sized way down on the top. It was the right choice! There’s enough slouch to do a French tuck, but not so much that it overwhelms. The fabric is a lightweight linen-blend knit that’s comfortable even in the heat while looking a bit more polished than a tee.
Saturday we met up with family for a patio lunch. It was too warm for the blue jeans so I swapped in this lighter and looser-fitting pair (also worn here). Yes, I wore the same scarf, as I really like how it looks with the sweater and adds some pattern to the mix. (It’s a vintage Chanel small silk scarf that I’ve had for several years.) The striped espadrille sandals tied in the colors in the top and scarf and also lightened the look.
If there’s anything from Eileen Fisher you’ve had your eye on, they’re offering an extra 40% off sale items, including some System pieces. Here are a few of my picks from the sale (some have limited size/color availability)
