Linen Stripes

loft-linen-skirt-2-600

Easy to care for and easy to wear, this skirt will be a go-to this summer. Linen is great because it’s natural state is a little wrinkly, so there’s no need to stress about rumples. It also tends to shrink in the dryer, so be careful with it if you like the fit. For example, this J.Crew linen shirt shrank quite a bit for me in the wash. I love the new shrunken fit, but if you’d rather not have your linen items shrink, you may want to consider air drying.

    That skirt is a great shade of blue!

    Love the Spanish tiles in the background. They remind me of the restaurant, Islands! I grew up in LA country and that was my favorite place to eat.

    Do you know if they sell that skirt in the store? Or is it available only online? Wondering if it’s worth it to pay shipping…

    I love linen. It is so easy to care for. Just a word of advice: it dries fairly quickly without machine drying, just hang up or put on a drying rack. I almost always air dry all my linen clothing and sheets.

  4. the skirt looks perfect on you! i love the j. crew linen skirt, hoping to get one later this summer. i’m always a little hesitant about linen. i hate the creases it gets when i sit. little wrinkles are ok, but creases… ugh. have a good weekend!
