If you were with me here at Dressed for My Day last summer, you have to know how much I love wearing linen during the warmer months. I’ve actually already pulled out my linen pieces and begun wearing them. But today I’m sharing two new simple but fresh and lovely linen outfits from Nordstrom’s house brands.

This first outfit is comprised of a pair of lightweight linen pants, a washed ribbed v-neck t-shirt and a long flowy ruana. I love wearing this combination for entertaining at my home, going out to a casual brunch or getting coffee with a friend.
These 55% linen, 45% rayon blend pants feature front and rear pockets, a comfortable drawstring waistband and full legs. These stylish pants come in petite sizes, too, but I don’t think this flax color is currently available in petite. They do run true to size but quite long, which is great if you enjoy wearing heels. But I will probably hem these to wear with these flat sandals. You can machine wash and tumble dry these linen blend pants, but I will probably lay them on my drying rack instead. Finally, they come in this flax as well as navy, black and white. You’ll find a lot of pricier linen pants out there this summer, but I think these linen blend pants are perfect for a casual lifestyle.
Because the linen blend pants were a little long for me (I’m 5’8″) and I didn’t have time to hem them, I chose to wear them with my espadrilles instead of the casual canvas sandals I had originally chosen. Nordstrom has a great selection of trending espadrilles in their Caslon brand. I especially like these and these for this easy breezy casual combination.
I’ve topped the linen blend pants with a stretchy pink rosette v-neck t-shirt. It just so happens to perfectly match the pink rosette fringe ruana from one of my favorite Nordstrom house brands, Treasure & Bond. I’m really enjoying wearing tops and completer pieces in the same color this spring, so I thought the pink rosette duo would look lovely over the flax linen blend pants. The 55% polyester, 45% cotton v-neck t-shirt runs true to size and also comes in olive and grey.
By the way, my necklace and bracelet are also from Nordstrom house brands, but neither is available anymore. But this necklace is similar and these layering bracelets would be my pick. I wore my Kendra Scott split hoop earrings. Let’s move on to the second of my summer linen outfits.
I know that many of my readers prefer to wear skirts during the warmer months, so I wanted to include a skirt option. I ordered this Treasure & Bond linen blend A-line skirt and crossed my fingers! I rarely feel like skirts look great on me, so I worried that it might not suit me. But this simple, blue Kentucky stripe linen blend skirt did not disappoint.
I think this linen blend skirt would look lovely with a more tailored or close fitting summer sweater. Maybe something slightly cropped so you wouldn’t have to tuck it in for the best proportions. But I felt perfectly comfortable and pretty pairing the linen blend skirt with this v-neck short sleeve tee. This short sleeve tee features a trending raw double trim around the v-neckline. It has a slightly roomy fit, but I’d say it runs true to size. You might could size down for a closer fit. It’s a little sheer, but not so see-through that I would worry about it personally. And the short sleeve tee comes in over a dozen different colors and patterns.
Because it was chilly the day we shot these photos, I only have the one without my denim jacket. But I love how a simple denim jacket completes this one-two outfit. Here’s a great denim jacket currently available at Nordstrom that would perfectly fit the bill.
I completed the outfit with my favorite packable floppy hat and these trending fisherman inspired d’Orsay flats. My floppy hat is also available in other colors, including white and ivory. The d’Orsay flats fit true to size and also come in tan cashew and pink smoke, both lovely colors for summer. I would wear this outfit for a day of exploring and sightseeing.
I love wearing linen and linen blend separates during the summer. I collected several other linen blend items from Nordstrom in the shopping widget below. Remember, Nordstrom always provides free shipping and free and easy returns. And I like to take advantage of their buy online and pick up in store feature since I live near a Nordstrom. If you’re not already a member of their Nordy Club, be sure to join before you place your order. You can accumulate Nordy Notes to put toward future purchases.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I put together my summer linen outfits from Nordstrom. Thanks so much for dropping in!

Blessed for My Day
My parents didn’t raise me to be a damsel in distress who needed to be rescued by a knight in shining armor. So I’ve done pretty well navigating my way through life with some determination to learn new skills and stay strong. I love my husband and depend on him for companionship, intimacy and joint goals and ventures. We complement each other well. But, while there have certainly been times when he has helped me through some rough waters, I know that my husband cannot and should not have to be my rescuer.
But let’s face, there are indeed days when our souls cry out for someone to rescue us. Maybe we feel hemmed into a situation, over our head, out on a ledge or at the end of our rope. Sometimes life’s pressures just feel like too much and we wonder if we may snap. Where, oh where, is that knight in shining armor? I’ll tell you where He is. He’s right there with you. Your God is big enough, strong enough, capable enough to bring you through anything that He has allowed into your life. Cry out to Him in your time of distress. He has rescued me…and I know He can do the same for you.
He also brought me out into an open place;
He rescued me, because He delighted in me. ~ Psalm 18:19
