Fashion in my 20s has been all about shedding my teenage self and figuring out how to express myself in adulthood. I found that when I graduated from college, all I owned was high school clothes that didn't fit me well, "going out" outfits, and loungewear. In the last five years since I graduated, I've been slowly building my "adult capsule wardrobe," compiled of pieces I can wear to work, traveling, and living my daily life.

I've always taken style tips from my mother (read her linen edit here), but once I started working at Elsie Green, I was surrounded by so many stylish women every single day. Each EG shopgirl is so self-assured and confident in her fashion choices, and we all like to borrow little tricks from each other.

Last summer was the summer of linen at the shop. Sepi, my mother, and I trademarked a look we liked to call "pajama chic." We wore almost exclusively linen separates, and mixed and matched them to our heart's desire. Since then, I've been slowly building up my linen capsule, and it's quickly becoming my favorite summer fabric.
