I am so happy to be working with a new company on Etsy called Camelliatune. I am trying to get used to this modeling thing. All of their clothes are 100% linen and are meticulously tailored to flatter the figure. I wore this fabulous red linen shirt (incredibly priced $39.00) last weekend wine tasting at one of our favorite Paso wineries Epoch.
Note the pocket detail on the front. If you don’t like red it comes in multiple colors. My sunglasses are from Banana Republic
I had intended to wear my favorite new find. The topshop moto cropped jean from Nordstrom with these but I forgot them. I love them so much I bought them in three colors. The pants I am wearing are super comfortable. They came from Anthropologie last year and are no longer available. The bracelets I have had for years. The hat is an ancient Helen Kaminski Provence (still available) a gift from my friend Sharon.
We are getting ready to head to the Texas heat to check out some of my late father’s properties. I am planning on wearing this comfy dress on the plane. It looks navy in the pic but it is black with gray ruched inserts. Note the ruched sleeves. I love this dress. I am pairing it with my uber comfortable kork-ease adrin sandals (I tromped all over High Point in these), and a necklace from Love Heals (an anniversary gift from Steve a couple years ago). You can find something similar on their website or better yet stop in their store in Ojai if you are nearby. They will customize anything in the shop.
This golden linen shirtdress has beautiful pin tucking all around the bodice and back of the dress making it super flattering. All of these items come in multiple colors. I think this would make a great swimsuit coverup in white. The dress is a bit long for me. I think I will have it hemmed up a bit. My necklace is vintage via ebay and my sandals are the catriona by kork-ease (they are on sale!).
Note the pintucking goes all the way around the dress not just on the front. The attention to detail is on point. Bracelets are old World Market finds. Actually the bamboo one is a leftover curtain ring from a job.
This grey linen shirt is a favorite. I love the color and the detailing. Pleats all the way around. Normally a shirt like this would be pleated in the front and plain on the back. I am pairing this with the topshop moto crop jean that I spoke of above. I LOVE these, they also come in black and the black is on sale. My necklace is a recent anniversary gift by Paula Carvalho .
This is a boxier style than the red and it is shorter in the front and longer in back for a more flattering fit. I love the color. I find it hard to find pretty grey pieces. On my feet, my favorite Olukai flip flops. I have these in both tan and black and I am seriously considering ordering the silver!
Now for the good news. Tracy from Camelliatune has offered 20% off +DHL express shipping +2-7 days delivery for anything on her site just for our readers. If you love her style as much as I do hop on over to Camelliatune and type cindyhattersley on your order and she will take care of you!
I am heading to Texas but on Monday I will post Part Two of my garden tour so don’t forget to stop back!
