When it comes to adding cute linen pieces to my summer wardrobe, Boden is always a great resource. This summer I'm crazy for all things linen and metallic. Combining these two trends is my favorite way to pull off everyday effortless summer dressing.

Boden Prints are Perfect for Your Summer Outfits
Here's another trend I'm in on: pineapples. Something about this tropical fruit has captivated me this year.
My tropical navy shorts have a sweet metallic pineapple print. Rather than making them look too sweet, they are updated with a trim fit and a shorter length.
Boden Pineapple Linen Shorts
These linen shorts have a 4" inseam, making them anything but "old lady." They're made from lightweight linen which travels effortlessly (I never mind a few wrinkles, that's the nature of linen). The waistband creates a flattering shape – but I do wish Boden had put pockets on them. Everyone needs pockets on everything --that's my style motto.
Linen Metallic Shirt
I paired the pineapple shorts with a whisper-soft linen shirt with a hint of gold woven in. When it comes to cute linen pieces to add to your summer wardrobe, you can't miss with a white or ivory long-sleeve shirt.
This Boden shirt is ivory with a gold metallic stripe. It's got a roomy relaxed fit (I'm wearing a size 6 and I'm 5'6" and 125). This is perfect layered over a tank --it's a great alternative to a cardigan.
For travel, this shirt takes up zero space in your suitcase while offering a ton of ways to style denim. The metallic stripes turn a basic into an elevated piece.

I don't load on the accessories in the summer. I picked this easy star necklace in gold from Boden to finish off the look. It has delicate hanging star charms on it and looks great with my summer sundresses as well as denim and linen.
