I've recently noticed linen popping up everywhere (in shorts, button down tops, blazers, and especially pants). I've picked up a few of these items, but right now I'm dying for a pair of white linen pants to complete my "linen wardrobe" for summertime. I'd love to wear them with a simple tank, flat sandals and a big floppy straw hat. This fabric is so versatile it can be perfect for the office, the beach, or anywhere in between. Have a great weekend, everyone!

I love linen too! I just worry sometimes that it may stretch and wrinkle too easily. But I still own it anyway. It's just so comfy, and especially perfect for the beach!

Hope you have a great weekend! :)

I love the look of linen, but absolutely hate having to iron it and it only looking good until I sit down, ha! That being said, I love that Free People romper!

Gabriel said...

"Linen Wardrobe"?? Now you have multiple seperate wardrobes just based on fabrics? Clearly I'm going to have to spend more time checking in your closet. But really, who doesn't love linen?

I love the linen skirt from Banana. It is a work skirt and can easily become a weekend one with flip flops. Linen is so comfortable and great for the heat in the summer.

Great post!

I'm LOVING linen right now. I especially love linen items that look like they're supposed to be wrinkled, because, let's be honest, it's going to happen anyway ;) Love that Banana skirt and the Free People romper!

I really don't like wearing pants during
spring/summer time, because over here it gets
really hot, but now, looking at those linen pants
that seem to be so airy and fresh, I actually
want to get a pair of white linen pants :D

In college I shared an apartment with some Indian guys and they would wear linen white pants everywhere in the summertime!!! It was so effortless and I was jealous! That is until they distracted my jealousy with pretty gifts from India...

The canon 5d mark iii is far better at high ISO than the Nikon D4, period.
The people today that invest in this camera, possibly have
an limitless price range, or are expert photographers.
While recording, you can also change the audio levels by
using the touch wheel, so if the audio is riding a little too high, you
can change on the fly.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot
drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83
views. I know this is completely off topic but I had
to share it with someone!
