Bare legs for days

Burgundy tank top, black silk shorts, black Steve Madden sandals — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

I'm welcoming bare-legs season with open arms this year. (Ask me how I'm feeling about it in a few weeks, though, and I'll be totally over it...ha!) It's so nice to give my legs a breather (and a little color) after the chilly fall, winter, and spring.

These silk shorts and sandals paired together make me feel like I have legs for days! I couldn't resist wearing my burgundy pima tank to finish the look even though the color palette isn't so summery.

Happy weekend, friends! I'm currently on my way to my hometown for my second (and final) vacation of the summer. I haven't been back since Christmas, and I haven't been back during the summer for a few years, so I'm excited to chill with my family and old friends and do every summery thing there is to do. ;) Here are some links I've been loving lately! I hope you enjoy them as well.

Embrace the wrinkle

Let's talk linen. I've mentioned before about how I didn't discover the wonders of linen until just a couple of years ago. I seriously don't know how I lived in the summers before I discovered linen. However, even though it is the best/most comfortable fabric to wear in the heat, linen is not the most "naturally presentable" fabric. It wrinkles like crazy. But you know what? I embrace it, because I'd rather be comfortable in wrinkly linen than dying in wrinkle-free polyester.

This is the look I actually wore to my concert this past Monday. It was at an outdoor venue, and the temperature was in the upper 90s, so I wore linen (of course) in an all-white outfit to reflect as much of the sun as possible. I did end up throwing my hair into a ponytail, and I was sweating from all the dancing, but I loved having the sleeves for when the sun went down and the air cooled. Per usual, I went matchy-matchy with my belt and sandals.
