I'm really grateful for people who don't like to iron, because they give all their expensive linen clothes to thrift stores where I can buy them at prices I can afford, then I can look great in expensive clothes without paying a fortune. Whew, that's a mouthful.
I love linen! It is cool in the summer, warm in the winter (layered) and feels heavenly to me. Most people don't like it because it has to be ironed. I love ironing! It is a brainless job that I can do at the same time as something pleasurable such as watching a movie or listening to a child tell me about his day. (Dishes are similar, but I haven't figured out how to move the sink into the living room so I can watch a movie, so I just listen to music or children while working in the kitchen.)
Anyway, I look for linen pieces whenever I shop at thrift stores. My latest find was a lovely shirt. I fell for the colors and classic style. I wasn't sure what I would wear with it, but figured for a couple of dollars I couldn't go wrong. And it just spoke to me! Once home I took it to my closet and realized that I had both a skirt and a pair of slacks that would coordinate. This morning I pulled together this outfit for church:
So, a big thank you to whoever didn't like to iron for donating this gorgeous shirt for me to have.
