In case you haven’t already noticed, I’ve been a bit linen obsessed this summer. There are so many things I love about linen. The first is that it’s an incredibly cooling fabric. This means that I can remain comfortably covered while not overheating during these hot summer months. I love linen because of its lived-in quality. I like to embrace the wrinkles instead of ironing them out. It’s also an incredibly durable fabric, so it’s perfect for summer adventures. When I knew I had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth Suzann on a styled post, I wanted to select pieces made from flax linen. Flax linen is a little more wearable than white linen with its slightly richer hue, but the light color makes it perfect for the ninety-plus degree days we’ve been having in Denver. Below are a few looks that have been on repeat since I received my flax linen pieces from Elizabeth Suzann.

little lesson

This look was something that haphazardly ended up in my suitcase during a weekend getaway. I was surprised by how much I loved the combination. I wouldn’t normally pair a mustard yellow top with black pants, but I think because both pieces are oversized and made up in linen that the look worked. Just a little lesson in trying things on even if you’re doubtful at first.

quiet rebellion

Pretty soon I need to do a round-up of all the clothes I’ve sewed in the past two months. That round-up would include my favorite thus far, the tank top you see below. I made this piece from a thick, denim-like fabric that holds its shape beautifully. There’s a lot of emotions I’ve experienced in the clothing making process. There’s a great sense of accomplishment, peacefulness, and even a sense of of quiet rebellion. You see, if I can make my own clothes, I get to choose where to buy the fabric from. I’m the one exerting the labor to sew it, which means it’s ethically produce (lots of doggy-cuddle breaks, tea breaks, and Real Housewives of wherever breaks). I get to alter the size or design and I know it’s totally unique (that’s a nice way to of saying that my crooked lines give it character). I think we call this a “win, win” type situation. And I’ve only just begun.
