Happy Monday, ladies! I've got to say it again: it's good to be back. We kicked off our Spring-to-Summer transition yesterday with How to Build a Summer Capsule Wardrobe. The guide featured 26 different items from multiple retailers, including today's focus: J.McLaughlin. I pulled together the cutest monochromatic shirt & short combo from them. (And because I'm never one to shy away from a little fashion controversy, today I'm talking how to wear shorts over 50.)
Although J.McLaughlin is not a regular on the blog, they're having a massive Spring Sale with up to 40% off. I spent the weekend combing through it and pulled together my top 10 favorites from the sale. They're all featured in an easy-to-shop widget at the end of the post. So stick around for that.
Today's featured items are a linen shirt and short combo from J.McLaughlin
The outfit is modeled, and I pulled together 2 alternates

When I think Summer, I think linen. Such a breathable fabric that is perfect for warm, humid climates like Georgia. One of today's featured items is a linen shirt from J.McLaughln. I went with pink, but the shirt comes in over 10 different colors/patterns.
I went matchy-matchy today with a monochromatic outfit---untucked for that perfect summer casual look. But this shirt will work with just about anything you can imagine: jeans, jean shorts, and pants all come to mind. (Scroll down for some alternative ideas on how to style this shirt.)
I'm loving these Maise shorts in gingham, also from J.McLaughlin. They evoke memories of summers growing up in the early 60s and bring a smile to my face. They sit right above the waist and are super comfy---perfect for the 85 degrees we've been having the past few weeks.
Shorts made my top 10 summer essentials this year. Truth is, they make my list every year. I can't do without them, especially in the Georgia heat. But much like distressed denim, short length can ruffle a lot of feathers. I'm a big believer in wearing what is comfortable, and what is comfortable for some is not comfortable for all.
