Rumpled Olive in Tennessee

Olive green linen dress (similar here and here), Strappy leather sandals (acquired years ago at a leather shoe store at the fashion district in Manhattan...somewhat similar here), H+M necklace, Floppy crushable straw hat, Mixed jewelry...some gifted...some old

On the third day of our cross country road trip, I wanted to be comfortable and unrestricted. So I opted for this little old olive green linen dress (which I spent the morning ironing) in exchange of my skinnies. To my frustration, this dress crumpled as soon as I sat down in the truck. Embarrassingly, as we made a pit stop in Tennessee I looked like a cow chewed me and spit me out. As much as I like the light weight of linen for its comfortability, it is one fabric that is very difficult to keep wrinkle-free. I know it's part of the allure of linen which I do appreciate, but having a touch of OCD makes it almost close to impossible for me to see/deal with the rumpled look of it on certain style dresses. I'm okay with it in bed sheets, white summer pants (also here) or drapes, but I don't know if it looks good on all types of dresses...perhaps because I realize that I'm not too fond of this particular style for it doesn't drape well. So needless to say, it's going bye, bye...

 How about you? How do you feel about linen?
