this is actually one of the outfits that i wore while i was on vacation in hawaii, but i never managed to snap a picture of myself wearing it while i was there! so yesterday, when i saw the sun shining outside, i pulled on this easy linen dress and took it for another spin. it’s one of those dresses that i don’t think i would ordinarily wear– it’s decidedly ladylike and much more mature than my usual girlish garb– but after having seen the sturdy linen fabric and well-constructed lines, i decided that it was just too nice to pass up. and definitely the type of thing to bring on a tropical vacation.
i’ve actually been a bit obsessed with linen this summer. i think i’ve mentioned it before, but it has always been one of those fabrics that i sort of hated because it gets wrinkled so easily. but then i realized that part of it’s charm is that it does get wrinkly. it’s supposed to be that way! i like that i don’t have to iron it and i can sort of just let it do it’s thing. it’s got this perfectly easy quality that’s pretty much the epitome of summer casual.
