I’ve got a running list of things I’m planning to pack for our stay in France. It’s mostly in my head. It changes every day or so and depending on the last time I checked the weather report.
I’m thinking I’ll follow my typical rule of thumb, which is to pack layers and as though we’re embarking on a week-long stay. We’ll be able to do laundry at my aunt and uncle’s once we’ve settled and I’m never afraid of wearing the same favorites over and over again, anyway. Still, it helps to be a little strategic. Choosing a dress or two that I know I’ll be able to wear over and over again without getting bored or otherwise bothered feels essential.
One item on my list is the linen Fleer dress from Bridge & Burn.
The Fleer in Black Linen is an update to the original cotton Fleer dress—one of the very first things I ever ordered from the company. Like most everything from Bridge & Burn, it’s an extremely versatile dress in a classic, youthful silhouette. Made from a combination of linen, cotton, and a bit of spandex, it’s comfortable and feels durable to withstand a month of frequent wears. With sneaks, it’s perfect for spending the day sightseeing. With a pair of sandals and a sweater, it’s the perfect thing to wear to dinner out. With a blouse layered over top, it becomes a snappy skirt. In other words: it’s a traveler’s dream come true.
If you’re on the hunt for a sundress—or any thing at all—to add to your summer wardrobe, the new Pacific Latitudes collection at Bridge & Burn is filled with summery prints in warm-weather fabrics like cotton and linen. As always the designs fit into Bridge & Burn’s signature blend of “functionality, comfort and unexpected detailing.” Bridge & Burn clothes are designed in Portland, Oregon and manufactured both in the US and abroad. You can read more about their manufacturing ethos in this post. (And in response to the frequent questions I get about where James does his shopping; he’s had some really nice luck in the men’s section!)
