When the Dallas, Texas temperatures are kissing 3-digits (I actually just overheard the weatherman say it feels like 108 degrees outside today), the last thing you want to do is put clothes on your body that are going to make you feel even hotter.
Silk, sweat stains galore.
Basically, you’ve got 2 choices: cotton or linen. (Well, technically you have 3 choices, but we can’t stay in the pool all day!)
Cotton is a breathable no brainer…but linen, oh linen, we’ve got a little bit of a love/hate thing going on. Love: Comfy, cool, airy, chic. Hate: wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles…did I mention wrinkles?!
But this summer I have come to embrace the wrinkles and embrace linen despite its major flaw. After 32 years of this battle I finally realized that I can’t make linen be something its not…linen has always and will always wrinkle…and while I have been trying to fight it all this time, what I should’ve been doing is celebrating the fact that it’s one more thing I don’t have to iron myself. The wrinkles give it character…wrinkles are it’s “thing.”
And sometimes, when it comes to clothes, or even to people, the flaws in the product are what separates it from the rest and gives a dose of originality, right?!
