Layering with a Linen Shirt

White linen J.Crew shirt over a J.Crew dress.

The temperature in PHL reached 63°F this past Tuesday, which presented the perfect opportunity to dine outdoors. I wore my navy, one-shoulder dress (pictured here) for the occasion. Adding a layer over a long dress can be tricky. But, since the season hasn’t yet progressed to shoulder-bearing weather, going outside without an extra layer of some sort was out of the question. A jacket wouldn’t have sufficed, but a white linen shirt, tied at the waist, worked wonders. I often wear linen shirts over my tank dresses but not so often over dresses with a bit more character. The temperature dropped to 59°F by the time our pizza arrived. I should have also brought my pashmina or a throw, but I won’t forget one the next time.
