Linen Dreams





Dress (Calypso for Target); Shoes (Elle for Kohls); Necklace (Banana Republic);
Earrings & Sunglasses (Target); Watch (Fossil)

I have a love/hate relationship with linen.  I love its comfort, versatility, and timelessness… and  HATE that after only a few moments of wear it looks like a wrinkled mess.   While wearing linen, I try to sit a certain way to avoid adding to the wrinkle count... which usually results in even more wrinkles, not to mention an unfortunate leg cramp.  And so I have a dream…  I dream that one day my crisp linen will stay wrinkle free for a full eight hours.  In the meantime, I will continue to iron my linen while shaking my head in defeat.

Those shoes are the perfect pop with the neutral dress. I agree about linen...it can be quite annoying with the wrinkling!

Your dress looks lovely on you but don't sit down! Lol, kidding .. With linen I just assume that everyone who sees me knows about it's extraordinary wrinkling proprperties. Let's talk about those shoes! Pink piping aroung purple! Fantastic.

Those shoes are SO fun Heather - I might need to make a trip to Kohl's :) And oh my goodness - linen can be the worst! Love the dress though, so pretty!

You could try Melaleuca’s Revive Wrinkle Relaxer it's like miracle in a bottle. The only thing is it comes in a big bottle so you have to transfer it to a smaller one so you can carry it around and it kinda has a scent, not a stinky scent, or a normal cleaner scent, but a kinda sweet weird scent... But other than that it's amazing :)

I know what you mean about linen, get it all pressed and nice then you put it on and it's wrinkled within seconds :/ But, you look stunning and I adore those shoes :)) xx

That dress is so cute! I feel the same way about linen, especially linen pants. The worst! It's worth it in the summer though.

I hate linen for the same exactly reason once you put it on, it looks like you've slept in it for about a week straight. The dress is beautiful, and I of course missed the calypso for target collab last year.

I've never been much of a linen fan, precisely for its ability to wrinkle in just 5 seconds. But this dress looks amazing on you, and I love the pop of color in the shoes! You look beautiful!
