For those of you that just tuned in, From Grandma with Love is a twice-monthly series that is one of my faves! I’m lucky to be the recipient of my Grandmother-in-law’s beautiful wardrobe. She owned so many unique pieces, and I’ve had the MOST FABULOUS time styling it on the blog. It’s a win-win for me because I ADORE vintage and a fun excuse to wear it!

This gorgeous embroidered linen dress was waiting to be worn, and the weather finally cooperated! I LOVE LOVE LOVE linen pieces. Linen wears so nicely and is a great breathable material for warmer weather. Some of my friends complain about the wrinkles, but I think they add to the character of the material.
Linen was all the rage on the Spring/ Summer runways in the form of a jumpsuit. Why not translate that to a linen dress which is an easy one-and-done outfit too?! The material is enough to keep it interesting. Just add the right accessories, and you’re all set for a fabulous day. I added these fun pearl hoop earrings that my friend, Katey, curated with Mad Jewels. Aren’t they so cute but elegant at the same time?
THE STYLE Rx: Linen is lovely and luxe for warm weather. Even linen blends can help you beat the heat without a wrinkle (if that bothers you).
A denim jacket is a great topper since the air conditioning is always cranked up indoors during the Summer. Throw it over the shoulders for a chic gal look or wear it when the temps lower. Either way, it adds a little masculinity to a very feminine dress.
Platforms. CHECK. Sandals. CHECK. Neutral. CHECK. You had me at platform sandals. It’s hard for me to pass up platform shoes since I was a prodigy of the 80s-90s. And when they’re nude colored, it’s all over for me! Nude heels/sandals elongate your legs which is why I have way too many pairs in my closet.
Do you love linen as much as I do? (Here are some past linen posts – a GMA dress, button-up shirt, and asymmetric tee.) What are your favorite kinds of pieces? I actually just bought a matching Mommy and me linen dress! Can’t wait to be twinning with my little one for Mother’s Day!
Happy Friday Y’all! Both kids have a dentist appointment today, and we are going to do a “campfire cookout” with some friends tonight. The kids loved the backyard campout so much that we’re doing a mini version. Can’t wait because the in-laws are coming over for an easy Mother’s Day dinner on Sunday. What are you up to this weekend?
