If you’ve been around here long, you probably know I live in linen during the summer. Maybe it’s because I always pack it up at the end of the season, but I just can’t get enough of it during these hot, humid months. I love linen from J.Jill, J.McLaughlin, Chico’s, Talbots, Quince and Frank & Eileen, among others. But today I’m sharing a black & white linen outfit from Eileen Fisher. You can find comparable garments from my other favorite brands.

Some women prefer not to wear black in the summer. But I can’t resist. True, if you are spending a lot of time in the sum, the black will absorb the sun’s rays instead of reflecting them like lighter colored fabrics will. But I’m not generally standing around outside in the heat of the day. So I feel just as cool in black as any other color, and I love it so much.

I’ve been wearing these Eileen Fisher organic linen lantern pants for several years now, and they are seasonal favorites. Like everything else at Eileen Fisher, they run a little large, so I’m wearing a size Small. The linen lantern pants are also available in white, undyed natural and a striking flame red.

For the first look I topped the organic linen lantern pants with a puckered organic linen sleeveless shirt in black and white. The shirt also comes in black, ocean blue and bronze. I’m wearing a size Small.

I like leaving half of my button-up shirt out in the front, but I understand that some women don’t care for that look. Not a problem. You could also fully tuck or partially tuck. You can, of course, leave the shirt untucked for a more relaxed look, but you’ll be better proportions with some sort of tuck to define the waist visually.

For both outfits with my organic linen lantern pants I chose to wear my black Hannah Vachetta leather sandals. I generally only wear black sandals with black pants. They can look heavy on the feet with other things, but they’re a great choice with black jeans or pants. These are very comfortable, but have no cushion at all. They run true to size.

And for both black linen outfits from Eileen Fisher, I completed the look with my Lagos jewelry (c/o). I frequently travel with these three pieces because they are gold and silver, and they work nicely with most anything.

Finally, for the first look I carried my black leather crest lock trap shoulder bag. This was truly an all black and white linen outfit. It’s comfortable, easy and effortless, just like a summer day should be.

For my next outfit, I swapped in a black organic linen vest from Eileen Fisher. I’m also wearing a size small in the vest. And it’s available in undyed natural, too.

The vest features a drawstring tie in the back, so you can cinch it a little if you’d like. But I think it’s really meant to have a sort of boxy fit. Eileen Fisher says this style was pulled from their archives, which is very interesting since vests like this are so on trend this year. What goes around comes around!

I did indeed wear those same black Hannah Vachetta leather sandals again, but I had fully intended to swap in my cognac sandals. Alas, I found them in the car after our photo session had ended. But I love the way cognac sandals and bag (and belt, if worn) add richness and interest to an otherwise black or black and white outfit. The Hannah Vachetta leather sandals do indeed come in cognac, too.

Blessed for My Day

Does it fill you with fear or bathe you in peace to know that you are always in God’s sight and on His mind? I suppose it should do both. The fear of the Lord can certainly help keep us on the straight and narrow when we remember that nothing we do, say or even think escapes His watchful eye. But I can always face each hurdle, conflict and daunting situation with peace and courage when I know that God is always watching and never caught off guard. The truth that should anchor these emotions for me is that God loves me. I have a loving, gracious and good God who never loses sight of me.

Today let’s allow the truth of Jeremiah 23:24 to keep us safe within God’s loving grace and goodness. May this truth bring us courage, soundness of mind and peace as we face every moment of this day.

Can a person hide himself in hiding places So that I do not see him?” declares the Lord. “Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?” declares the Lord. ~ Jeremiah 23:24

xoxo, Kay

  1. Hi Kay-
    Love these two outfits and shoes. I’ve never gone in for linen before but I bought some flax linen pants for a recent trip to Italy and I wished I had more! So now I have black ones too. I live in southern CA and can definitely wear them a lot here. I appreciate you and all your style tips!

  2. I like the black on black outfit. The pants still look very large on you do they come in extra small?

  3. Those outfits look so good on you . My favourite is the Vest top + Pants , you look so Chic and Summery and very Nicely Modern Xx
