Refresher Course

Refresher Course
A few breezy pieces to update and refresh your summer wardrobe. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Every year about this time, I find myself staring down several more weeks of warm weather. And that’s when the Summer Wardrobe Doldrums set in.

I don’t have a large Summer wardrobe, as I often find it the most difficult season to shop and dress for. I’m tired of looking at the same few tops and though I love my jeans, it would be nice to have a few more alternatives.

If you’re also looking to refresh your summer wardrobe, I’ve spotted a few pieces that look relaxed and comfortable enough to wear at home, but polished enough for “out and about” when the time comes. And that are classic enough to wear for more summers to come.

Madewell linen-blend midi dress with belt. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Above, for those who love dresses, here’s one in a linen blend, available up to size 24 in some colors. A simple chic alternative in a sea of frilly and floral summer dresses!

It has pockets! Talbot's striped cotton-linen blend midi skirt. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

This linen-cotton blend skirt reminds me of something you’d see in a Paris shop window in the summer. Offered in Misses, Petite, and Plus sizes. (And very budget-friendly at the sale price!)

Madewell tapered Huston pull-on pants in linen blend. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I’ve ordered these linen-blend pants in the Natural color to try. The olive is a nice neutral too. Yes, they have pockets! They’re offered in Regular, Petite and Tall, sizes XX-Small to 3X.

Everlane organic cotton box cut tee. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I absolutely love these little organic cotton tees! They’re available in several colors (solids or stripes) in sizes XX-Small to XX-Large. (See how I’m wearing one of mine here.)

JJill linen knit v-neck top. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

If you love the coolness of linen in the heat, but not the wrinkles, try a linen knit. This top is offered in Regular, Petite, and Women’s sizes, and is currently marked down substantially. More colors, too!

Everlane air scoop neck tee in white. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Or maybe you’re just at that point in the year when your favorite white tees are looking a little dingy. Here’s an easy scoop-neck tee in super light cotton fabric.

Ideas to refresh your summer wardrobe: J.Jill striped cotton knit tunic. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

I have this tee on order, will report back. Offered in Regular, Petite and Women’s sizes. It’s a nice longer piece to throw on over my stretch crepe ankle pants.
