Currently Craving | Linen.

*{This post contains affiliate links}


It's summer, and summer calls for linen. This is probably no surprise for most of you but to be completely honest.. I never ever was interested in anything linen. To me, it was something for old people. A boring fabric that is high maintenance. And yes, to be fair, it is a bit high maintenance. I definitely have to get out my steamer more often than I did before my linen love affair, but it is so worth it! 

It all started in April. I was on a city break in Salzburg with my boyfriends family and it was HOT. Of course, I was not prepared as I was expecting a nice mild spring weather. So I wasn't very pleased with my packing choices. Obviously, I have to pop into Zara whenever I am near one, this is how I stumbled across this gorgeous white linen dress. It is a bit too short for me to wear on its own but it works perfectly fine with tights. I wasn't sure about it but I really loved the look of it. Needless to say, I got loads of compliments the next day when I wore it and the best part.. it felt so amazing. If you haven't tried linen clothes on a hot summer day you are seriously missing out. I haven't come across a more cooling and comfortable fabric. 

So this is how my love for linen started. I since added a few midi and maxi linen dresses to my collection to wear them in summer without tights. Here are a few of my current faves and cravings I might need to get soon.

Do you love linen as much as I do? Or are you still skeptical?

  3. I love linen but yes it is a lot of maintenance and I can’t stand ironing. I stick to anything that doesn’t require any ironing. 😊💞😘💖

  8. I personally love the linen trend because it is such a simple, light, fresh, and summery way to look instantly chic and be comfortable. I currently have 13 different linen dresses on my wishlist lol. I particularly like the ones with asymmetrical buttons because they look very unique and Mediterranean, which I love! I also think linen trousers are such a beautiful piece, they give me very Eileen Fisher vibes, however, I haven't been able to find a pair that works for me!

  10. So funny, but I also used to think that linen is a bit of an "older" people fabric- totally in love with it these days. :)

  11. I'm not necessarily skeptical but I'm more unbothered on the type of material I wear. I think I normally go for cotton. Nevertheless, I am a fan of one of the pieces you including in the low-medium slot;it was the gingham jumpsuit which I find so stylish. Thanks for sharing your cravings of linen.😅😆

    Btw what do you use to edit your pictures like this? The collages and the cursive writing? I am really intrigued! Absolutely love the way you do the pictures!
    Hope you're having an amazing week!
