What I love this week: time to chill edition

5 total views

Happy Friday, friends! Even though it’s been years since I was a Corporate Desk Jockey with a regular M-F schedule, I still experience a little frisson of anticipation at the approach of a long holiday weekend. We’ve had a lot going on these past few weeks, and I’m looking forward to some quiet time with a book. That’s the vibe I had in mind for this easy “coastal chic” linen outfit idea.

A linen outfit idea to stay cool & covered

This one’s for my fellow Shade Worshippers. Skin cancer runs in my family, and I’ve had a couple of pre-c lesions removed, so I really try to limit my sun exposure. I always travel with a linen shirt to stay cool while blocking at least some sun exposure. These linen shirts are so versatile. I like to wear them open as a lightweight topper over a tank. (This “Absinthe” color is on sale now, and is a nice match for “seafoam” in the Spring palette.)

Many of the items I’ve included here are on sale, including my new favorite sunscreen! It’s all-mineral, but doesn’t leave a whitish cast or pill over time. It works well under makeup too.

Reading list

I finished up the Slough House series by Mick Herron, and am looking for some ideas for either similar spy novels, WWII history, French history, or biographies of interesting women.
