A classic laid-back style for summer is white linen pants. Perfect for outdoor BBQ’s and days at the beach, linen keeps you cool but it can also turn into a wrinkled-mess.
A great alternative to the usual drawstring linen pant is Madewell’s Boyjean in Linen Wash. These pants are thin, lightweight and comfortable. They will keep you cool all summer and are a great transitional staple for work and play.
Stay crease and wrinkle-free with the linen-alternative.
Boot Week starts with a great flat boot.
The Billie Buckle Boot from J Crew is a classic equestrian-inspired style with rugged detailing. The boots are made of an incredibly supple Italian leather that is soft and flexible. The flat-heeled design and leather sole ensures luxurious comfort and the decorative straps, finished in antique gold, can be used to loosen or tighten the calf of the boot.
The Billie Buckle Boot pictured here are the extended calf version. Available in a shorter version and an array of colors and finishes, these boots are extremely versatile.
Style these basic boots with slim skinny pants, a romantic dress or the new, elegant “midi” skirts. The Billie Buckle Boot is a perfect addition to any wardrobe with a classic style that will last for years.
Inspired by 70s style, the floppy felt hat is my must-have this season. The classic wide-brim floppy will not only protect from sun damage, but will add a bit of glamour and bohemian flair.
The 70’s Floppy Felt Hat by Asos is my most recent purchase. I have been obsessing for months and finally found the perfect one. Made from thick felt/wool, the shape of the hat is perfect and adjustable (but hard to clean). The band of ribbon adds a simple embellishment that is soft and feminine.
Inspired by various bohemian and hippie influences, this hat has a retro-modern style. Pair this item with cut-off jean shorts and peasant top, big dangely earrings and ankle boots for an effortlessly casual look. Dress this look up by pairing with wide-leg pants and blazer or sundress and chunky heels. Or, channel your inner Brigitte Bardot and couple this floppy hat with wide-framed sunglasses and striped t-shirt.
The key to the look is confidence. Be fearless and rebellious this summer and try one on for size.
