Summer Check List

Summer Check List

Despite the fluctuating weather patterns - from 100 degrees to chilly and rainy all in one week - summer is here. School's out, vacations have been planned, local strawberries are finally in season and we see more sunshine in the forecast.  It's a good time of year to check in on a few key pieces in your summer wardrobe and fill in what's missing. 

As we all know in Portland, the days can remain cool until nearly 5 pm, so it's good to think about lightweight layers in cotton, denim and linen.  We also like sticking to a color palette, so you can mix and match easily and the clothes will fit seamlessly into your existing wardrobe.

From L to R: Rag & Bone straw wide brim fedora, Rag & Bone "Devon" scarf, Vince Park Collection convertible bucket bag, Majestic stripe linen tee, Paul Smith cotton skirt, Frame cotton lace tank dress, Current/Elliott "The Snap" denim jacket, Rag & Bone "Drape" tank, Current/Elliott "The Girlfriend" short, Vince lace tee and Frame "Le High Skinny" jean.

A few of our favorite summer essentials include a good sunhat, a striped linen tee, a couple breezy, cotton tops, a versatile sundress, and of course a pair of white jeans.  All pieces that can be mixed and matched and dressed up or down. 

Happy Summer!

Lively in Linen

Lively in Linen

Linen is no longer limited to wrinkled suits and tropical vacations.  It's a fabrication that can be worn all year long, in the city, and in basically any silhouette you can think of.  It can be tailored and crisp when woven or soft and breezy when knit, the options are endless. 

With spring here and summer around the corner it's a good time to take inventory of your linen pieces to see what needs updating or what you're missing.

Linen dresses have come a long way in the past couple years, no longer are are they simply boxy and stiff shifts, now you can find lightweight, beachy rompers and dresses as well as sleek and slim styles that can take you from work to date night. And as always, let's not forget the classic linen popover, now embellished with a touch of sparkle or military epaulets, it's a piece you'll find yourself wearing all summer long.

Closed linen field jacket, Majestic double layer linen tee, Closed "Starlet" jeans, G. Kero "Magic Lion" cotton scarf, Rene Escobar bangles & Annabel Ingall "Isabella" tote

A lightweight tailored jacket is an easy addition to your closet, throw it on over a striped Majestic linen tee and jeans to channel your inner French girl.

Treat Yo' Self

Treat Yo' Self

We're getting in the spirit of Saint Valentine's Day here at Mercantile.  Shades of pink and red on the racks and all the candy hearts you could ask for. 

We know it can be a loaded holiday for a lot of people - whether you're in a committed relationship, years long marriage or happily single - it can be both stressful and often times disappointing.  Rather than put your Valentine's gift in the hands of another person, we've picked out some rose hued items just for you.  That way, no matter what your relationship status, you'll be taken care of.  We believe in self-reliance after all. 

Take your pick from the list below, grab yourself a bottle of bubs and you'll be all set for a relaxing, and of course stylish Saturday (fingers crossed for sunshine!).

From L to R: Paul Smith herringbone stripe scarf, ATM "Cozy" cashmere cardigan, Max Mara "Oblato" jacket, Shiraleah leopard clutch, Kismet by Milka double bar bangle with champagne diamonds, Max Mara "Palco" shirt, Majestic striped linen t-shirt.

Always remember, there's nothing better than to treat yourself!
