Linen is such a great fabric for summer shirts. And I had three in my closet--but I rarely wore them. One was white, one white with pale blue-grey stripes, and one had multi-colored pale stripes. Pale is the operative word here and when I put them on, I looked pale too. Washed out. Tired.
I find that I still am tempted by clothes that would have looked good on me when my hair was dark. These three mistakes were due to that magical thinking.
