I’m throwing this one out before the end of summer. I can see it’s starting to cool down in a lot of the country, but hello Southern California has a mind of its own and its still warm! Yup I’ll be wearing this linen dress for a while and I have my plans for how to style it in the fall, so stay tuned for a follow-up post next season! Normally, as it says in the title, you’ll see a 1 piece styled 3 ways, but I was feeling extra one of the days I wore this piece and was able to mix things up into a 4th look, so you’ll find 4 today!
This free size 100% linen dress is from Japanese brand, Moussy, which I bought during my damage spree on my layover in June (quick explanation here). I feel like, for the most part, a lot of petites tend to stray away from maxi styles because there is a high possibility of all the fabric overwhelming a smaller frame. As for me, I love a maxi style. And I should be honest when I saw this piece in the store, I didn’t even bother trying it on. It’s good to know your own proportions sometimes! I also knew while I was shopping in Japan right before summer that I wanted something linen. Summers are quite brutal over there yet they always know how to dress so stylishly and modestly. I knew they’re a country who knows they’re stuff when it comes to linen clothing, so I went for it.

Thanks to the button downs, this dress can fully function as a light layer and I turned it into a cover-up as I went to the pool this summer. At one point my sister asked me “aren’t you hot” and I said “no way!” because the linen kept me nice and breezy.

This was a super simple look I threw on for going to church on a Sunday afternoon. It’s pretty self-explanatory and I remember wanting something a little extra that wasn’t just your typical “jeans and tank” outfit.
