I’m back for good this week; back to a “normal” schedule, and I’ll be posting every day again. I miss my mother, but we had a great time together, and I suppose it’s time to get back to real life.
Speaking of real life…here are a couple of outfits I wore last week featuring my new Patti linen shell from Elizabeth Suzann (they sent it to me to review for you a couple weeks ago). I’ve worn it a handful of times since I received it – thanks to the super-hot weather here – and I really love it. It’s such a simple piece, but with impact.
The medium is a great fit for me, although it does stretch a bit with wear (it is 100% linen). I wouldn’t have sized down in this even with the stretch; I’d like to be able to layer it over a t-shirt or maybe a long sleeve shirt at some point and I prefer the drapey, loose fit of the medium. FYI, I usually take small or mediums in most brands, and my Rhodes sweater from Elizabeth Suzann’s collaboration with Kordal earlier this year is also a medium and runs small in my opinion.
So far I’ve just worn this over a bra, but I’ll also try layering it later this week if it stays cool. It’s quite sheer, and you can definitely see my bra through it, but I really couldn’t GAF at this point. It’s not immodest in my opinion. It’s a bra.
As you can see, I do the half-tuck (not sure how successfully LOL) with it sometimes, and wear it out sometimes – I like it both ways. And this color is beautiful.

I’ll post some more pictures this week of the Patti layered; hopefully it will turn out to be a great multi-seasonal piece. I’d also imagine it would be great for traveling since it’s super lightweight, won’t wrinkle, and makes a great layering piece.
Did anyone order and receive the Patti shell? What did you think of it?
Happy Monday!! I hope you have a beautiful week 🙂
