Emily Tong of Love Or Money Blog wearing linen shirt and flounce skirt

I think it’s safe to say that linen is the official fabric of summer. It’s lightweight, breathable, and looks just as good wrinkled as it does pressed – making it the perfect vacation companion when you need to toss it into your beach bag or suitcase.

Emily Tong of LOVE OR MONEY blog wearing 90's style printed dress and espadrilles in LA

I am not a gold girl, but an exception can be made in this case, because hummingbirds are close to my heart. I even bought my first pair of gold earrings in like, 5 years – all to match this little fella. Continue reading
