Until recently I didn’t own anything made from linen. I have always shied away from it because of it’s reputation of being a high maintenance fabric. I mean seriously, it’s prone to wrinkles, most garments are hand-wash only, and it needs to be line dried.
Who has time for that!? Well…one hot and humid day I was shopping at TJ Maxx, (one of my favorites) and came across a rack of adorable linen dresses and decided to try them on. I finally realized why this this fabric may be worth all the hassle. I loved these dresses so much that I ended up buying three! Yikes! I wore them nearly every day during my most recent trip back to Indiana where it was hot and humid during most of our trip. These dresses kept me cool and comfortable. Linen is awesome at absorbing moisture and drying out quickly. I also want to mention that is starts to feel softer each time it is washed. I guess it is official, I am now a true linen convert. Below are a few of my favorite linen dresses and Tiffany’s favorite linen pants.
