Sunshine, clear skies, and a refreshing spring breeze. These are just three things that put a smile on my face and bring me "instant happiness." There are a million more (like giggling babies, mint-chocolate chip ice cream, and the sound of a champagne bottle being uncorked,) but, I have to say: the warm weather is really, really hard to top--especially after such a long, brutal winter.
With the change of season and the shift in weather, I find that I've now got a renewed excitement for fashion. Bye-bye shearling boots and dark cashmere sweaters! I'm sure I'll be happy to see you guys again in the fall, but I'm ready to have a love affair with some lighter, brighter fabrics. And, right now, I'm very much crushing on linen.
Linen shirts, linen dresses, linen pants, linen shorts, linen blazers... Linen anythings. Ironed crisp or well-worn with wrinkles, I love me a linen outfit. (I'm even thinking about getting the husband a linen suit... Thoughts?)
This white button-down shirt from J.Jill is my current fave. Putting it on gives me, well, instant happiness. It's so versatile and easily dressed up or down. More times than not, though, I keep it simple with a pair of cuffed boyfriend denim shorts, neutral loafers, simple accessories (colorful sunnies are a must!), and a fabulous bag. It's maybe the easiest outfit ever--effortlessly chic, casual, comfortable, and totally attainable too. Here's how you can get the look...
