Summer Linen

helene heath, brooklinen, linen robe, linen quilt

We're not huge on AC in our household, which means that our heavy duvet isn't the most welcomed sheet on the bed during the summer. Yet up until this year, we never had the luxury of a lighter blanket to replace it with once the weather warmed up, and most nights between June and September would turn into body temperature battles where the heat never failed to claim victory over the comforter. It habitually ended up in a rejected ball at our feet.

Northeast problems, amiright?

This recurring summertime issue had to be remedied, and I decided that this was going to be the year. A lighter bedspread didn't just feel like it would be more seasonally-appropriate, I also envisioned an aesthetic upgrade in the form of an airier, breezier, all-around better fitting post-solstice bedroom look. Spoiler alert: I wasn't wrong.

I found perfection in this linen quilt by Brooklinen, which sits perfectly above our top sheet, and provides just the right type of blanket coverage one might need when the outdoors heat up. The kicker? Brooklinen also made this impeccably crisp and cozy linen robe that I've been romping around the apartment in nonstop. To be honest, I might even wear it as dress at some point.

Bonus: got a lil perk for you guys too! You can get 10% off your Brooklinen order of over $50 with code helene10. I know their sheets are amazing, but I very strongly recommend this linen quilt and robe.

Summer Sun Ready

Warby Parker Felicity Summer Sun Collection Helene Heath

June is here, which means the days are longer, the sunshine is steady, and the official start of summer is right around the corner. Life is good. I like to do a little style reboot at the start of every season by adding a few new pieces (most often secondhand) to my sartorial roster to freshen things up.

And that goes for sunnies, especially for summertime. I've been wearing Warby Parker shades for many years, and working with them to launch their new Summer Sun collection was a total dream. Their new frames are bomb, and I'm wearing here the Felicity Striped Sassafras model. This pair is one of my favorite sunglasses shape of the season — they've got a 90s retro vibe that ironically feels very now.

All this to say that I've got my summer shades sorted... and so does Wally (scroll all the way down, you're welcome).
