What I Wore: Blue Linen Shirt, Any Time of The Year

My clothes have to serve for a climate that ranges from warm, to very warm, to blazing hot, and then mildly cool. I have had to wean myself from buying big cozy sweaters and fleece leggings, even though I love that look. Some versatile pieces do work perfectly for ten months of the year in Florida (nothing feels good in August and September except nudity and iced tea).

The magic pieces include: denim and cotton skirts; knit dresses that can be easily layered; long-sleeve but lightweight knit tops; and button-down shirts. This blue classic linen shirt (similar) was a thrift find for just a few dollars. It doesn’t hold wrinkles, if you give it six good shakes from the washer.

The year-round skirt is dark denim from Old Navy (similar). I was doing open shoes last week when this pic was taken, but today it’s ankle booties. The blue velvet belt was thrifted years ago, and the bead necklace was made by a friend.

Sorry for the lack of focus; caffeinated photographer. The older I get, though, the less I mind a bit of blur  : >

Stay warm and fabulous,

  1. Ah…blur is my friend. Martha figured that out years ago and has been walking around with preprepared vaselined camera lenses ever since.

    It is funny how black and blue used to be such a no-no. It looks great together here.

    BTW…just for reference, it has felt like -18 here all week long…


  2. Love how you've strung the blingy necklace over the shirt, a fab contrast. You look fab. xxx

  3. You can't go wrong with great pieces like these, Patti! They work anytime…and this blue looks amazing on you!
