At this time of year, I'm all about being laid-back and savouring every sweet moment of summer.  Though the temperature's steadily climbing and the layers are finally coming off (Hallelujah!) sometimes a little dress or shorts just don't feel appropriate throughout the week.  A light-as-air open-knit sweater in a cool shade of white (worn over a white tank) and easy linen-blend pants are effortlessly chic and perfect for everything from a lunch date to a day at your air-conditioned office (assuming your workplace's summer dress code isn't super strict).  Throw a few cognac accents and some fun zebra-print wedges into the mix and you've got a look that's carefree yet totally put-together.  Voilà!

LOVE this. If it is a linen-BLEND, does it wrinkle like regular linen? It's the one downfall to the fabulous fabric.....arriving to work after sitting in the car for 1/2 hr and it looks like you slept in them. Bring on the SUMMER!

These pants are a cotton and linen blend so they will resist wrinkles more than a 100% linen pant. If you prefer a crisper look, any other black pants will do the trick. xo
