New York summers are something awful.
Theyâ€™re humid, hot, and leave me in a pathetic puddle by the time I reach my destination.
Youâ€™d think that I would know how to dress myself after 18 East Coast summers. Youâ€™d be wrong.
What I do know – linen is everything, as are bags that can slung on my shoulders and in the crook of my elbow. Flats or bust. Metal jewelry is a no-no. The days of booty shorts are long gone – and good riddance. Give me a scallop hem, and Iâ€™m a happy woman.
This tunic–shorts combination is one Iâ€™ve been wearing since Talbots generously gifted them to me. Theyâ€™re fairly wrinkle-resistant, are incredibly flattering, and breezy enough for the hottest and muggiest days.
Iâ€™ve sung the praises of this visor and this bag in a previous post, but itâ€™s worth repeating. The visor is both stylish and protective, and the bag is absolutely perfect. Itâ€™s roomy, chic, and holds everything I need for even the longest days.
Itâ€™s no wonder that Iâ€™ve been wearing it weekly. Twice-weekly, depending on my laundry diligence.
I was thrilled to partner with Talbots on this Instagram campaign, but their Summer Book Club is worth repeating. Each Talbots store has a lending library where you can exchange one of your books for a new-to-you one, and Iâ€™m here for it.
And while youâ€™re there, pick up this exact outfit and give their jewelry section a look.
Stay cool, my friends.
Or stay the least sweaty.
