Linen on Linen // Target Style

Can you believe it is already July 4th tomorrow? This year is blowing by! I know I talk about it a lot on here, but oh my gosh is it going to be hot tomorrow. In order to keep cool I've been wearing linen on repeat. The only problem with a lot of linen is that it can be really expensive depending on the brand. I recently found these insanely comfortable Target linen pants and have not been able to take them off - I've even convinced friends they need to get them, and now it's my turn to convince you all!

These bottoms are less than $30, wash easy, and are great for both casual and formal outings - plus, who isn't into the wide-leg trend right now?

Shop the look:

Top. Anthropologie - found on super sale - similar here and here from Madewell (both on sale!)

Bottoms. Target Linen Wide Leg Pants - you guys seriously need these in your life. They are the most comfortable and perfect for summer

Shoes. Hinge 'Mere' Flat Slide Sandal - super comfortable and perfect for a lounge-y day

Bag. Coach - discontinued - similar here from Coach

I'll be spending my fourth of July in comfortable, breathable clothing, hopefully watching some fireworks and making cookies. Happy holiday everyone!

Summer Rompers // It's Hot in Austin

It has been excruciatingly hot here in Austin. High temperatures in the 100's and lows in the 80's means we are all dying, and don't even get me started on the mosquitos! The best thing about summer in Austin, however, is all of the summer fashion. Any other season of the year, it's typically too hot to wear all of the cute new styles, or the great classics, but summer is our time to shine, so I thought I'd share with you all a cute little linen romper I've been wearing non stop.

Recently snagged from the huge sale going on with Anthropologie, this little linen has become a staple in my wardrobe. Now, I know what all of you are thinking, "Ami, that isn't capsule wardrobe," but oh contrare my friends. This romper while maybe more "trendy" than most capsule pieces, was well-made with quality fabric, incredibly comfortable, and will come back for next summer.

Here is my little philosophy on capsule wardrobes, if you think you will wear it next year, if you think it will hold up until the next year (and hopefully many years after), then I think it fits the capsule wardrobe label. The thing with capsule wardrobes is that they are very tricky, especially in a world in which most pieces of clothing can hardly last until the end of the current season. We have no idea what our bodies are going to look like next year - maybe we gain a lot of weight, lose some, get pregnant, or our hormones shift and our body shape changes. It's not realistic to plan a strict-capsule-wardrobe when you don't know what your body is going to look like. *stepping off soapbox now*. Here are some photos of this gorgeous summer romper.
