Linen & Camo, Community & The Style 6 Link Up

Hello. It's spring break, but it's not a typical spring break is it? I know these days are unsure. Schools, restaurants, and store fronts are closing, while churches are choosing not to hold services. It feels so weird. I'm grateful for our health and pray for the health of others as well as the effect these closings have on businesses and their employees.

I'm also grateful for this blogging community. I want to hear how things are near you. Do you know someone personally that's infected with the COVID-19 virus? Are you fearful? Angry? I think we can share each others burdens, while lightning the mood when we can. The momentary distraction is a blessing.  This community is an encouragement and I'm thankful for each and every one of you.

That being said, in addition to this dress, I'm sharing a few things involving community today!
ONE: There's a cool story on how these pictures came about and I can't wait to share it with you next week! In the meantime, I'm sending a big thank you and shout out to the "Lenzqueen 16".

TWO: Today is the Style 6 Link up. Each week we invite other bloggers to link up their fashion and beauty posts with us. Not a blogger? That's 100% ok. I invite you to visit the other blogs in the link up! Also, be sure to see who each of us picked for the outfit of the week. It's all in fun because, I'll tell ya. I like them all. ;)

THREEJill, from Doused In Pink, is featuring the same dress from XCVI tomorrow! Jill and I began to engage on Instagram and then added Marco Polo (a social app to send video messages) to our communication. It was there I learned that we both chose the same dress. Though, I don't know how Jill is styling hers, she did inform me that it's a perfect fit. Can't wait to see how you style Jill!

FOUR: I already feel a connection with XCVI and I want to continue to share about them,  even more so in these difficult times. They are based out of LA, which I heard is on lock down. I'm pleased to be an affiliate, especially since they generously offer readers a discount code for each affiliate. My code is GRANOLA20 for 20% off!

Folksy Jacket - C/O XCVI // Camo Tropical Dress - C/O - XCVI // High Block Heels

"Fashion You Can Live In"
I stand by this declaration! The jacket I'm wearing is lightweight and soft to the touch. There's buttons for function and style. The sleeves are 3/4 length with ruching on the sides. The cut is flattering, but size up if you're hoping to style this jacket closed. I only close my jackets if I'm cold and I'd choose another style for keeping warm. I like this one just as it is.
The dress is linen so I'm ready to stay cool throughout upcoming warm months. The camo, tropical print is stylishly fun and the high-low cut adds MORE interest and detail. I personally think it's more flattering as well.
 Not enough detail? There's a back's V neckline has criss cross threading! For extra fun I added my pink bralette to compliment my pink shoes.

 Wearable, Moveable, Breathable...elastic around the arm holes keep the bra from peeking out. ;)
Did I mention this dress has pockets? They are inseam front pockets. See them?

Did you catch last month's dress from XCVI? I shared features I look for in a spring/summer dress. Both dresses I've tried fit this criteria! ;) Stay safe and healthy my friends!

Last week's Karen from Lady in Violet. Hop on over to her blog to see how she styles an outfit for the rodeo. My family and I recently visited a local rodeo and I wanted to duplicate her look, but I don't have cowboy boots. Maybe next year!

  4. Fun dress! I probably will be doing some online shopping these next 4 weeks!

  5. Chrissy, I love that dress! I'm seeing so many cute pieces that I missed on the site. (I think because I only looked in the one section...but not next time😉) It pairs perfectly with your white denim jacket. Love your pics frolicking in the water. Have a great week. XOXO

  9. You look perfectly adorable, I'm loving the jacket! Isn't linen the best for your weather? Hugs!

  10. Chrissy, this dress is so amazing and so totally you! And I am loving the pink bralette to match your shoes. These pictures are so much fun as well and such a joy to see. It has been hard here to focus on anything past today with so much uncertainty around us. But I am trying to focus, stay positive, and keep writing and blogging as usual. We definitely all need positive distractions. It is times like these where I am even more grateful than ever for this community. Stay safe and healthy, my friend!


  11. Talk about a perfect dress for you Chrissy!! The pink lace in the back is the perfect surprise!!
    I am so glad I am blogging right now. It's definitely my happy place.
    Thanks and stay well,

  13. Super cute! Love that white jacket paired with it.

  14. This dress looks so lovely

  15. These photos are sensational. And that dress is perfect for kicking it at the coast. I loved Jill's olive color of the same dress, but the gray is more unexpected! You both wear this dress so well. Darling details in the back and I like the hemline.

  16. Such a simple, yet charming look. Love the heels too.
