Favorite Friday

Here in Texas, it's 75 and sunny and I have been itchin to break out my summer clothes. I LOVE and LIVE in linen in the dog days of summer, so this fabric has been on my mind lately!  I would love to whip up any of these creations!

I love the colors and the gathers on this linen tunic top. 
The empire waist is my favorite silhouette in a top too - helps camo the pouch!

I have come to LOVE headbands as of late. The strawberry print is precious and the pleats give it a polished look.  yes, please!

Love these drawstring linen pants.  Comfy, casual and breathable in the heat.  I'd pair with a structured shirt or fitted embellished tee so I didn't look like I was wearing my pj's!

I love the asymmetrical hem on this shirred dress!  
And it has a pocket!  Dresses with pockets are GENIUS!

 ...and because Summer isn't Summer without a great, dare I say perfect, pair of flip flops....these are my fave!  Love that I get to change my mind and not break the bank or clutter my closet with a million pair of flip flops!  I actually this same pair and the straps on this one have a linen look to them as well!

So - are you ready for Spring (aka the two weeks before Summer in Texas)?  
Or is it still cold where you are?

And PS - why do I always want to spell "linen" with 2 l's?

*note* Favorite Friday features are simply things Cari and I find on the web that we think have that something special.  We aren't compensated at all for our opinions, just like to spread the word on what's cool and where to get it!
