We’re currently having a bit of a heatwave, which has kicked my summer wardrobe shopping into high gear. There’s not a lot that I need, but there are a few gaps that I always find challenging to fill.
While our coastal L.A. summers are relatively mild, we are planning a couple of road trips that will take us to warmer regions. There may be some pool time…
I don’t faff around with complicated bathing suits anymore. I want something simple, comfortable, and supportive. I’ve had good luck with Lands’ End “tugless” tanks, and this color-block style is right in my wheelhouse. In Regular, Petite, Long, and Plus sizes.
I love linen in the heat and would wear it head to toe, but it’s been difficult finding linen pants that aren’t a wide leg style. These look promising…a tencel-linen blend with a slimmer leg. (Petite here). And here’s a link that should work for my Canadian friends: Slim Tencel-Linen Pant
Linen tees are a favorite, but it’s hard to find styles that aren’t oversized or boxy. The set-in, elbow length sleeves give this one a more refined look. (And it will layer well underneath a jacket or sweater.) Plus here.
New in the SHOP
I’ve updated my SHOP page, and have added some new categories. Many of you have mentioned that you’re looking for dresses and other special occasion clothing, so I’ve added Dressed Up, Not Trussed Up. You can also Shop My Instagrams, browse Reader Favorites, and more Linen picks. I’ll be updating on a regular basis, so do check back. And if there’s a category you’d like to see, please let me know. (I’ll be working on Summer Travel picks soon…)
