Summer is in full swing around these parts! I'm still trying to get used to the 90°+ heat, to be honest. I forgot how quickly one sweats when it's this warm out... #tmi (We even shot these photos well into the evening and it was still so hot!)

As you know, I live in linen in the summer. It's the best fabric for keeping cool, in my opinion. I found that while I own both linen tees and linen shirts, I prefer the feel of linen tees. Plus, they're easy to wear, and these linen tees from Everlane don't seem to hold in wrinkles as much as my linen shirts (by Uniqlo). I decided to pair this linen tee with a denim skirt which may not have been the best choice when it was so warm. ;) I added basic black accessories to finish this already basic look because I don't like to think too hard about my outfits in the summer!
