5 FLAX Outfits // Summer Edition

>> Thursday, August 3, 2017

This week is speeding by! I didn’t want another one to pass before I shared my flax outfits with you. This isn’t my entire wardrobe I was promising, but I figure I’ll get something up instead of nothing. Sound like a deal? Deal! If you haven’t read my last post, go check out why I mostly buy second-hand clothing and why I love FLAX.

So, I feel like I had these preconceived notions of the kind of woman who typically wears FLAX. To me, it always looked like something a funky 50-year-old woman would wear for business casual. Too boxy upon too boxy with like a jacket as the cherry on top or something. I try my best not to dress like that. But sometimes I like to rock a head-to-toe linen look, and I think it comes off alright.

Here are two examples:

Thing is, though, I often shy from FLAX on FLAX. Well, maybe that’s not true. It’s just that I love pairing linen with jeans. My beloved jeans! Here’s one of my all-time favorite outfits. I go to it for anything from a trip to the farmers market to an evening out. Yes. My evenings out are extremely casual, and I like them that way.

To me, it looks a bit artsy. Almost like I’m wearing some apron-smock thing. Below is a look I rock mostly at home. Leggings with an oversized button-down for butt cover. This is a great outfit for looking semi-put together . . . but also not caring if I get food all over myself. At the same time, I wouldn’t hesitate going to Target in this getup.

This last outfit is something I actually haven’t worn much. I had wanted to show you another outfit, but the shirt is in the wash (baby food and yogurt stains!). Anyway, I hadn’t had FLAX pants in my collection until recently. I have a few pairs of shorts. The pants feel difficult to style for some reason, but I actually wore mostly linen pants in college. A comfy t-shirt is always a win. I can’t resist tying the shirt. That’s something I haven’t been able to shake since my LuLaRoe obsession.

So, that’s how I style my FLAX for summer. I’ll try to get up a post that shows you each piece in my 30-item closet. Most of it is linen. I have a few t-shirts and several pairs of jeans. Why thirty? No reason, really. I don’t set a limit on myself, but I like to keep it relatively small. I wouldn’t call it a capsule. It’s just easy to manage when there are fewer items. Less laundry, and the like.

What look do you think is best? My favorite is still number 3!
