Linen and Cotton Summer Pieces…and linen bedding

 

Who doesn’t love breathable fabric!?!?!  

Linen is hands down my favorite fabric for summer. I used to have quite a few linen tees and outgrew most over the years. One thing about linen tees is that most of the time they’re thin (perfect for hot days) but some lighter color require a nice nude bra.

Rounding up some versatile linen and cotton pieces below (mostly linen). In LOVE with the Pj’s set below…couldn’t resist it, had to get it (UPDATE: I received the pj set and absolutely love it. I decided to size up to Small and they run very big…so you can easily size down. I’m keeping the small as I do love the set to be extra roomy).  Tempted to get the other color too.   Currently on sale!  Also got this short sleeve linen shirt (timeless. And late not browsing is dangerous lol).

 

 

Speaking of linen…..a few years ago I purchased a linen duvet cover and it’s still my favorite to use (the other one is cotton and it’s ok but it’s ready to retire).   One thing I love about linen is that it gets better and better with each wash but it doesn’t lose durability and it’s breathable!   I’ve been meaning to buy a linen bedding set for ages and each time I remember to look I can’t either decide on color, or when I finally do that color is sold out (at least from the retailers I’m looking to purchase from. Loving the Sand/Oatmeal-y color. King size is in stock, so I ordered it).  I love that undone look of linen bedding…it just looks so cozy and inviting!  I got my sister linen bedding for their wedding anniversary last year and she loves it! 

 There is such an overwhelming amount of linen bedding out there, but know that high prices don’t always mean better quality.  Something interesting I noticed when looking for linen bedding….a popular bedding brand that’s on the pricier side has the exact description on their linen bedding as the ones I’m linking below but they charge over $100 more…. Crazy! 

I’ve had my eye on this linen duvet cover with the border and recently I found they also have this one with the edge embroidery.  They carry solid colors too, but color Sand (which I love) seems to be always sold out in King.  One of the reasons I’m liking this company is because their stuff is ethically made yet they don’t charge as nearly as much as so many other brands do. I also love that they offer 365 day return policy (what is that even like lol).  I should mention that they do have other bedding fabrics too. 

As I’ve gotten older, for some odd and unknown reason, I’ve become very picky about bedding and how it feels.  I can’t stand anything other than cotton and linen (I get hot and irritated otherwise lol).  I’m so so excited that they had the Sand color in stock and can’t wait to use it!  Once I’m ready to retire our cotton sheets, I’ll order their Luxe Italian Cotton Sheet set.  UPDATE 6/18 – I received the linen sheet set today and omg I love love them. I threw them in the wash right away so I can use them asap.  

 

What are you picky about?  (picky is a good thing šŸ˜‰   We like what we like!

    Have you ordered any clothing from Quince? Iā€™m curious about the quality and fit. The prices are almost too good to be true!

      Hi, just their Cashmere so far but ordering a couple of more pieces of clothing (plus bedding). I’ve been very happy with the quality of their Cashmere. Only one sweater seemed a tad itchy for some reason but washing it in cold water solved that problem. They have great customer service and return policy.

    Funny that you should mention linen sheets, I was this close to pulling the trigger on my first set today, but just didn’t want to spend that much money! $350 for king. Ended up ordering some cotton percale from another company for less than half the price. The linen sheets are intriguing though…might have to try them next year…! I haven’t been happy with any of the sheets I’ve purchased for several years now; last great set was from LL Bean, a nice crisp yet soft cotton, but they don’t make those anymore… ; (

      It’s crazy how expensive sheets can run. I’m liking the linen ones but I think they need a couple of more washes before they become perfect. Until then, I think my favorite are still crips and cooling cotton sheets. But it’s also nice switching it up each week. Enjoy your new sheets šŸ™‚
