Hello, Summer.

Summer Love.

Now that Summer is finally here {and it actually feels like it in the city} it's time to put some extra thought into each outfit. Given I do live in the city by the bay, the fog can roll in and change the weather on a dime so layering is key. Enter, the structured linen jacket. Although linen is often not a choice fabric not loved by all because of the wrinkle factor. BUT it is a piece that has the ability to transform an outfit from simple to chic. In other words, it's time to invest in a steamer {I love this one}, which tends to be much faster than ironing anyway. Pair your linen jacket with a girly dress - the structure of the jacket provides a masculine note to an otherwise feminine look. Or add an element of sophistication by pairing with wide leg Parisian-inspired trousers, ruffled blouse and special jewelry pieces. Here are some choice styles to recreate these looks.
1. Tsumori Chisato lightweight jacket, $740
2. Isabel Marant long jacket, £505
3. Oasis linen jacket, £65
4. DAY Birger et Mikkelsen linen jacket, $250

8. TopShop linen jacket, $120
