You may remember I was going on about a striped linen shirt the other day that wasn’t available online well NOW IT IS. Here is the link.
Yes, okay, it is not cheap but it is absolutely the nicest thing I own at the moment. I was, like, grateful to the girl on the till for taking my money in exchange for it.
It is soft, chic, drapes really nicely, washes with no drama. It’s cool on a hot day and not all slimy and cold over hot skin, like pure cotton can be – but it’s also warm on a cooler spring day. It’s not even especially creasy, perhaps expensive linen creases less?
I have worn it probably every other day since buying it. This is one of those expensive things that is properly worth it. People ask me where I got it. This is the real deal.
I am a 10-12 and took an M and it’s perfect. Wear with light wash jeans, or denim shorts, or white boyfriend jeans, or as a nightshirt, or open over a t-shirt, or under a sweater.
