There are a few key words that come to mind when I think of summer…. barbecues, fireflies, rosé, hydrangea, sand…. and LINEN! It’s the fabric of the season and I am excited to share a “micro” collection I created with Gibsonlook featuring a few pieces in this classic summer fabric. These pieces are easy, breezy and FUN! If you have a trip coming up, they are definitely vacation worthy, but they are also staples I see myself wearing in my everyday life. Gibsonlook is known for top notch quality and versatility and in the photos below I showed several ways to style each piece. You can use code MOTHERCHIC15 to save 15% off your purchase! Make sure to read my sizing notes, as they vary a bit.
But it’s linen! Will they wrinkle?! First, any garment that comes in the mail needs a good steam before I wear it – regardless of the fabric! The fabric we used has a decent weight to it so unlike most linen, it really won’t wrinkle when you wear it. I’m sharing a closer look on my stories today so make sure you take a look over here 👉 @themotherchic
Our Bring on the Zen Smocked Wide Leg Pant is so crazy comfortable! They are what I like to call “throw on and go” pants because they are effortless and give your outfit that “chic factor” with minimal effort on your part. You can style these pants countless ways: dress them up with a camisole and heels, dress them down with a graphic tee…. and you can bet I will be rocking these at the beach with a bikini!

Sizing Note: These pants have a wide, leg crop silhouette. They are designed to sit comfortably above your hips and are between and mid/high rise. I am wearing size XXS which is sizing DOWN. If wavering between sizes, I would purchase your normal size as they are meant to be flowy and not fitted.
When naming the pieces in the collection Sunday Funday was the first thing that came to my mind and I just went with it! This romper is just unexpected fun, just like those weekend days that come out of nowhere and end up being SO GOOD. It’s hard to wear this romper and not smile. It’s easy and playful and again, can be styled many ways. The easiest way to wear it would be with a basic tank or tee and flats. Take your beach wardrobe up a notch by wearing it over a swimsuit. You can also layer a jacket over top!

Sizing Note: While I normally wear and XXS in Gibsonlook pieces, I took an XS in this piece for more room in the torso. The straps are adjustable, but no matter the length of your torso, I would recommend sizing UP in this piece! You will want it it be roomy and comfortable!
They say first impressions are everything, but imagine how their mind will be blown when they get to know all sides of you! This summer sweater reminds me of just that…. You are more than just a first impression, and there are fun little parts about you that people can only learn if they really know you! This top is classic in the front, and has a little unexpected party in the back! It is bra friendly, but you can always wear a tank underneath. Again, it can be styled for many different occasions – Lunch date? Check! Post workout pullover? Check! Running errands? Check! And while this fabric is not technically linen, it has a similar texture which is why we included it in this collection.
