It’s getting hot in Boston.
While white linen is extremely likely to show any markings and certain to become hopelessly rumpled, there is something about it I cannot resist. Even (and especially) wrinkled all to hell, I think white linen looks great. More so than linen in other colors, somehow.
Linen shirt and shorts (thrifted), J Crew belt, suede clutch* from The Old Laundrette (Etsy), freshwater pearl bracelets (eBay), freshwater pearl studs and pearl ring from Pearl Paradise, cherry Tahitian pearl necklace from Pearls of Joy, gladiator sandals (eBay), retro sunglasses (eBay (cheap)). On the lips: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick in La Favorite ( a much brighter pink in person, and lovely in texture, truly velvet-like).
*This was the second style I chose to fulfill the envelope clutch quest I mentioned a few posts ago. I’m tempted to go for this kind of honey, cognac shade every time, virtually independent of context. So predictable.
