Vacation style // Linen shorts set + tie front top

vacation beach outfit linen shorts crop top set

This has been the season of linen and I can’t get enough of the lightweight, breathable fabric. Express has several linen coordinates in a handful of colors that can be mixed and matched for summer weekends. I thought this set was so cute for a vacation or BBQ outfit! The black set is a little more understated while the colorful set is more playful. The yellow and lilac colors are on super sale right now with extra discount applied at checkout, totaling just $36 for both pieces!


High Waist Belted Linen Shorts

In 3 colors, sizes 00 – 18

These are nicely tailored shorts with a chic belt that can pair easily with tops ranging from a sleek cami to a slouchy sweater. The waist is non stretch and fits me snugly with no gap. These are high enough to pair with cropped length tops while keeping my post-baby belly fully covered, and the inseam length isn’t too short.

Linen Tie Front Crop Top

In 7 colors, select colors on sale

This is a playful tie front top that can also be worn as a swimsuit coverup with a sarong skirt to go from pool to lunch. I love the fuller shoulders and sleeves, and a reviewer also included a photo of her wearing it backwards! I wore this top with my adhesive nippies but f you want to wear a regular bra, try wrapping the ties around the center of your bra band to conceal it. An xxs fit me just right, but if you’re between sizes, most reviewers suggested sizing down.

Pull On Paperbag Shorts (elastic waist)

If you prefer a pull on, elastic waist short for more comfort compared to the non stretch belted linen shorts above, these also come in coordinating colors with the crop top. With the ruffled paperbag top, these shorts are high rise enough that it almost looks like a romper when worn together. I agree with the reviewers that these shorts run a little big, and the xxs fits looser at the waist than the 00 in the belted, non stretch linen shorts.

Faux Wrap V-Neck Ruched Dress

I’ll share a photo soon, but also wanted to mention this little black dress with flattering ruching details that is on sale and fully stocked in petites! Another piece that’s on extra sale right now are the colorful options of my beloved pleated ankle pant. The vibrant yellow is under $30 in cart after discounts! You can see them styled on me here.

Thank you Express for partnering on this post.
