It's officially the season of linen. This lightweight fabric is as easy as a summer breeze. I don't like stiff linen. Especially in the summer. When it is hot, I want it loose, flowing and unstructured clothes. When J.Jill send over this tunic and slip-on pant I thought it would be perfect for Memorial Day.

The cool turquoise top and clean white pant are perfect for a summer party. The outfit is so well-suited for an outdoor event because it is easy and effortless. While I could have paired it with a wedge heel, I went for a flat since I plan to be out on grass this weekend. Heels won't work, so I grabbed my Tieks--foldable flats--in a festive snake print.
The Easy Linen Pant ($59) has a relaxed fit (size down!) and comes in 11 colors. I'm always a fan of pants that come with pockets. My one wish with these is that the waist is more finished. I would only wear these with something loose over the top.

As for the top, I'm wearing the Tissue Linen Pintucked Tunic ($79.99). I love the color and the length is fabulous. This is a super travel piece. I could imagine wearing it to warm destinations like Greece, Asia or South America this summer.
Perfect Summer Accessories
Since we're talking summer fashion, I wanted to keep the accessories uncomplicated. I layered on a cotton infinity scarf ($39) and some turquoise earrings. These are from Melinda Maria and I love bringing them out for summer. I would definitely pack and wear this whole outfit for a summer adventure. Wrinkles be darned! In fact, I think the wrinkles are part of the charm.
