Hello, and welcome to Dressed for My Day. I’m so glad you dropped in for your fashion fix! Today I’m linking up with a new friend and fellow midlife style blogger, Lisa at Midlife in Bloom, to style white linen blazers for you. When I visited her in Scottsdale, Arizona, recently to attend the Saturday brunch she so graciously invited me to, we discovered we had both just bought a white linen blazer. So of course we had to team up to style them for our readers!
Lisa is a wife, mom of grown kids, grandmother of one with a second on the way and an avid traveler. She enjoyed raising her children and then, like many of my readers and myself, ventured into the career world. Now retired from that career, she has begun sharing style, travel and wellness tips with women like you and me through her blog and social media.
James and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Lisa and her husband a few weeks ago. They are both extremely gracious, easy to talk with and oh so generous. And before we left our visit with them, Lisa’s husband offered to pray for us. That’s the quick and meaningful bond of Christian fellowship at its finest!
I definitely want you to go visit Lisa at Midlife in Bloom, but first let me show you how I styled my white linen blazer for spring and summer. You are going to love this new spring and summer wardrobe essential!
While this white linen blazer is extremely versatile and can definitely be dressed up, I decided to style it with indigo blue jeans and an indigo print cotton shirt for a casual but fresh summer look.
This lined linen blazer is amazingly lightweight, but still has enough heft to make it feel rich and luxurious. And I love that it’s tailored and fitted. The jacket features one front closure button with several functional buttons on the cuffs, too. I’m wearing the 8 so it’s true to size.
I’ve already worn this jacket so many ways. In fact, I wore it with this dress. But I think my favorite pairing so far is with jeans. Here I’ve styled it with my premium denim medium wash skinny jeans, but later you’ll see me wear it with distressed light rinse jeans. Like I said, so versatile.
This hip length 100% cotton shirt is also extremely lightweight, so you don’t have to worry about getting overheated in this outfit. I left the shirt untucked here for an extra casual vibe, but I’ve also worn it with the front shirt tail flaps tied just below the waist. Cute!!!
I tried to keep my jewelry casual and fun. Don’t you love the way this palm leaf necklace ties into the paisley theme of the shirt? These fuchsia beaded sphere earrings sold out, but they’re still available in white (which I also own). And it looks like my gold bangle has also just sold out, but I recently ordered this gold bangle (also available in silver) and this pink enamel one (also available in 5 other colors) to wear with this shirt and other favorites.
Continuing with the casual vibe, I wore my leather platform wedge sandals and carried my favorite leather tote. Comfort was the name of the game here! And these wedge heels surprisingly fit the bill. But if you need lower heeled sandals, you could certainly wear something like these.
Even without the white blazer, these jeans and colorful shirt create a chic and casual summer look. You can bet this duo will run on repeat all summer long! Did I mention how lightweight and soft this sweet button up shirt is?
But….I’m going to be topping this duo and so many other things with this white blazer all spring and summer. In fact, my mom just ordered this blazer recently, too. And I know she’s going to love wearing it. Can you think of things in your closet you’d wear with this summer wardrobe essential?

Blessed for My Day
Do you know a woman who has aged well? You know, a woman who may be advanced in years, but she still looks beautiful in your eyes? What is it that makes her so alluring, so lovely?
My bet is that it’s not her skin, eyes or hair, though she may still have vibrance and beauty in those areas. When a woman truly draws me in with her beauty it’s because she radiates with wisdom and grace that come only from knowing God. Today let’s make sure we spend more time in the presence of our Lord than we spend in the front of our mirrors. That’s where true beauty begins and grows.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. ~ Proverbs 31:30
