Linen suited

Posted on June 16, 2017 by Nikki Brooks-Revis

If you've been following my Instastories lately, you know my life now revolves around this mustard color.  It's truly my new black.  So as I searched for a linen fabric and came across this medium weight mustard linen, it was truly a no-brainer.   But buying linen online can be pretty tricky because, despite the description, no linen is created equal.  With my fingers crossed I opened my shipment and was over the moon excited.  This linen is perfect! It's soft with a bit of structure making it perfect for jackets and pants as well as skirts that require movement.  The fact that it comes in 21 shades is simply a bonus.
