Knock Knock linen top – Y’s pant – Frye Carly Chukkas

This shirt is very wrinkled. Granted, it’s a linen shirt so keeping it crisp after ironing is nigh impossible. I’ve even worn it several times and put it right back on the hanger in my closet, so it has several office day’s worth of wrinkles on it even before I put it on today.

However, something felt more comforting about this shirt being so wrinkled. It felt softer – probably due to multiple wears – but I wasn’t overly bothered by how wrinkled the shirt looked and am even tempted to not iron it after washing it. Is that office appropriate? Well, considering what I can get away with I’d say yes. It’s a medium weight linen so the wrinkles look softer than if I wore a gauze or lightweight linen. In any case, I felt like I was wearing PJs today at work. The pant is lightweight wool and even though I can iron it, I never do simply because the wrinkles rarely show and mostly because it’s one less thing I get away without ironing and it won’t look bad.
