How To Wear Linen Suit Separates This Summer

  1. Cute outfit. The camisole that you are wearing under the blazer, is it the banana republic silk camisole or the Nordstrom satin everyday camisole?

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Sherry, The cami I am wearing is The Washable Silk Camisole from J.Crew, it is mostly sold out but here is a link to the colors/sizes remaining:
      The Banana Republic and Nordstrom versions are similars, in case your desired color or style is unavailable at J.Crew. Thank you so much for stopping by today! xo Kelly

    As a petite, I love the addition of Kelly, although I’m not a size zero. I’m aso a big fan of Hobo handbags. I think I might need a new one.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hello Alecia, I love the distinct designs and leather colors HOBO Bags has to offer – so much fun! And the quality is superb. Thank you for stopping by, it’s great to meet a fellow petite! xo Kelly

    Kelly, I’m enjoying your outfit posts (and still enjoy her food blog each day!). It’s great to see you showing us that you still wear clothes, shoes, etc. that you’ve had for years and that you don’t just buy new things all the time.

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hello Lee, Thank you for your comment…you’re right, I don’t buy new things all the time. That’s the great thing about having a style that mostly revolves around classics that never really go out of fashion. I like the challenge of shopping my (tiny) closet, Lol! I have always felt that if you make smart purchases, and care for them, they will last. I do enjoy certain trends, but it’s all about balance. xo Kelly

    Nice post. At 5’3”, I do love seeing more of the petite fashions. I’ve always shopped at Talbots bc of their extensive petite collection. And while I love Talbots, I’d like to expand beyond that and you’ve given me the knowledge of more retailers who carry petite. Also great idea to pair silk w linen! Nice for date night.. one more thing…I’m loving Djalai cooks, made several recipes and referred my friends. You two are a great team!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Debc, That’s great you’re looking to expand your go-to petite retailers! I tend to revolve around 3 or 4 that have reliable petite offerings. But I too, am always looking for other retailers – I am excited to share what I find with you! It makes me very happy you enjoy Djalali Cooks; and that you’ve had success with the recipes! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by! xo Kelly

    I love the outfit and the shoes. Linen always makes me think of Agatha Christie, because she mentioned linen clothing a great deal as she sent some of her characters off on safari or an archaeological dig. Most of them would not return, so I do hope someone who appreciated cool and well tailored linen was there to rescue any clothing that survived. You always look so smart and chic in your photos. Now that I’ve talked about the fabulous JCrew, I must bemoan the fact that the fabulous Hobo bag is not available on their site anymore. This style of handbag was big as late as the sixties, but I haven’t seen one in years. It’s such a classic shape and you can keep a good grip on it. I will set my daughter on the trail and if she can’t find it, it can’t be had. She is into older designer bags so this should be just the thing for her. The other day she casually mentioned that she was selling one of her vintage Dior bags and was buying a vintage Chanel bag. While these purses are much more affordable than their newer sisters and cousins, yipes!

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Hi Mari, Yes unfortunately, that Hobo bag is from 2007/08, though a search on ebay might yield something… I really do love linen, It’s fun to mix it up with a blazer, it’s such a pulled-together look! xo Kelly

    Very nice look on you Kelly! Perfect for out to lunch with the girls!

    • MaryLynne says:

      I have shrunk to 5 feet ( used to be 5’2″ )but not in size unfortunately. I have almost the same outfit from Talbot s in petite plus. They are the only retailer that I have found that has anything bigger than a 16 in petite. Thank you for showing me some different ways of wearing my linen now that it has finally gotten warm enough to go without a coat in Michigan

      • Kelly Djalali says:

        Hello Marylynne, I am happy it has warmed up for you in Michigan! Sizing is always tough – it varies so much between retailers and it’s especially tough when you from alpha to numeric sizing. Thank you for stopping by today, I am so glad to have given you some linen inspiration! xo Kelly

    • Kelly Djalali says:

      Thanks so much Nancy! xo Kelly

    Thanks, Kelly,
    You’ve inspired me to head to the factory. Pull on linen pants can run a little to full for me, but this style looks great on you!

    I’m so excited about your posts!
