Hello, good to see you today. It’s hard to believe we are already a few days from August! But that’s ok, because there’s still plenty of hot days ahead to wear my favorite fabric, linen. If I lived in a tropical environment, I think my entire wardrobe would be linen. I love it that much! Linen and cotton poplin. A combination made to be worn and lived in. If linen and crisp cotton make the best bedding, of course they’d be the best summertime fabrics! Today, I'm showing you a linen skirt that's on point.
Today Kellly's featuring a linen skirt from Alex Mill and The Point shoes from Rothy's

Much like the shorter, full linen skirt I wore a few weeks ago, this linen skirt from Alex Mill is a dream to wear. Super light linen and fully lined, this skirt is only sold in regular sizing. I am wearing an xs. It falls slightly longer than just below the knee, but this suits me just fine. If you’re up for tailoring, this skirt would be an easy hem for a tailor.
This Kelsey Skirt is sold in four colors. I went with khaki for its neutrality and ultimate summer feel. Pairing khaki with white is a no-brainer any time of the year. To keep things easy, light and pulled together, I went with a crisp white poplin popover. This is an early season item from J.Crew, they always bring it back so keep your eyes out for it, but in the meantime, here are a few other options:
I always like a pointy-toe shoe with a full skirt. It’s a very classic, vintage look. To keep it modern and fresh though, I have a pair of Rothy’s The Point, in Desert Cat print. I love this graphic version of animal print. It’s a perennial favorite, plus Rothy’s offers matching accessories, like this large wristlet clutch.

Rothy’s are pricey, it’s true. But their knit shoes and accessories are machine washable! A delicate cycle, mild detergent, an air dry and your Rothy’s product is good as new. So many styles, in so many colors and fun prints – I feel like a kid in the candy store when I shop their site. The best part is that their shoes are made sustainably and are very, very comfortable. I have several styles of Rothy’s and I have always ordered one half size larger and they work out. But this style, I might suggest ordering your regular size as these are slightly big on me.
We are taking a stroll through the University of Georgia campus before we grab a bite at a great little restaurant across the street called The Place. The Place features fresh takes on classic southern food; think chicken and waffles, fried chicken sandwiches and shrimp and grits. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, take care and be well! xo Kelly
