Linen Wrinkles

When I spotted this mint skirt on The Limited's site, I knew I had to have it. When I received it, I knew it would be wrinkled from the mailer. I hung it up and steamed it perfectly. I put it on, got into my car, drove into town and when I stepped out of the car I might as well have rolled out of the mailer with the skirt. Wrinkles! How do you keep a linen skirt wrinkle free? Maybe you don't...

Either way, I'm crazy about minty green this season....so I'm still going to share my wrinkled pictures with you in all of their messy glory!

I feel ya! Add starch spray when ironing. Helps me with some Capri pants that I have, but you will still always seem to have some wrinkles...

isn't that the TRUTH about linen!? so irritating. I did have an older woman once tell me though.. you know it's nice linen when it wrinkles badly. Take comfort in that. LOL

So funny that you posted this today - I just wore a linen dress yesterday and had the exact same issue - I literally sat down to check email for FIVE minutes before leaving the house and immediate wrinkles!!! I'll be posting that outfit a bit later on and you'll see you're not the only one!! :(
