1930’s Vibe

With this outfit, I was trying to emulate a kind of 1930’s, Katharine Hepburn type of look. Of course, my pants are not structured enough and the shirt is a bit too casual, but it’s pretty close, isn’t it? I think a pair of white sandals may be more appropriate too, but a) I don’t have white sandals and b) I had to add a bit of color somewhere.

In other sad news, I stupidly threw these pants into the washing machine – I’ve machine-washed linen before and never thought twice about it – and now they’ve shrunk beyond recognition. Apparently the shop didn’t bother pre-shrinking their linen. I’ve tried to stretch them out as best as I could, and I’ll see if they can be salvaged with some ironing, but at best, they’re still going to look cropped. Just my luck. I’ve been looking for a good pair of wide-leg pants forever, and I managed to ruin the one pair that I found.

    Great outfit. Check out Old Navy especially clearance rack. I have wide leg linen pants in the same color I bought at the beginning of the summer and they have held up well in the wash.
