well, it was only a matter of time until summer decided to show up. and it did. but guess what? i’m ready to beat the heat in style with this cute linen tunic popped over a pair of chic white pants. i never met a pink top i didn’t like and this one is scrumptious in a soft, breezy fit that’s perfect all summer long. yes, linen wrinkles it’s part of its charm. but it’s cool and fresh in hot weather thanks to the fibers made from the flax plant. and white pants? when paired with pink i’ve got it made in the shade. now all that’s left for this casual ootd is add a pair of sandals. my ‘jacks’ are back in action. as is my wicker handbag trimmed in pink – who could resist. what else is needed for a hot summer day?
happy hump day, ladies!

Delicate, smooth and elegant look. I love this!
I love pink and white so fresh for the summer. I never mind the creases in linen.
hi josephine! i’m so happy to hear from you. and i can’t agree with you more about linen. it’s fresh and always perfect for a hot summer day.
Love this! What’s not to like about pink? You wear all shades of pink very well. Saw a blog post about a bathroom in a Craftsman style home that was painted pink…not bubble gum pink but a lovely, paler, flattering color. xoxo
hands down, donna, my favorite color! and i think i have just about every shade of pink in my closet. i’d love to see that room painted in pink. is it on pinterest? i think it would be a flattering color for a room.

Adorable outfit – from top to bottom!
perfect outfit to enjoy a hot summer day! and i am loving every minute of summer.
So cute! I love that top! Totally my style! And that bag, wow! Love it!
i wore this top all last summer, amy! it goes with so many things and has pockets to boot. that is a win/win.
I have that top in pink and also in a sort of light teal blue, and I just love it. It’s great for our scorching hot days here in NC. and it has pockets, for God’s sake. Perfect with that bag. Summer, bring it on. You look terrific.
why do we like pockets so much, sue?! but i am hooked. i bet the teal blue is gorgeous! do you wear it with black? because blue and black is such a beautiful color combo.
stay cool ‘cuz summer is here.
Love the pink and white. So fresh and crisp. I also love your hair color and cut. So cute!
hi lisa! isn’t pink and white a perfect summer color palette? you’re so right when you say it’s fresh and crisp.
Dearest — The top is just a little too long and the flared shape from the front really doesn’t flatter.
thanks for stopping by!
