Quick Update: 15% off at NotPERFECT LINEN Ends This Week!

This is just a super quick update post about NotPERFECT LINEN. Last week, I shared about items I currently own from the company, as well as what I was thinking about ordering (you can see the post here).

I’ve been dragging my feet on my order, but they just posted this:

And this is a super bummer! Because I JUST got a 15% off promo code for first-time buyers. However, since they are pausing their referral program I wanted to give you a heads up because if you are planning to place an order, you only have a few more days to get 15% off with Joules15.

According to their post, “the 15 % off discount offered for first-time buyers will not be valid from the 10th of March.” I’m not sure if that means you can still place orders on Friday, but I would finalize everything by Thursday just in case.

This lit a fire under my butt and I finally placed my order with them. I ordered:

PORTO-2 front snap tank – I ordered this in Moss Green and I gave them my specific bust measurements so that I can make sure this fits properly.

MARSEILLE front snap skirt – One of these skirts popped up secondhand in the discontinued heavy-weight Redwood linen, so I bought it even though I wasn’t sure a M/L was the right size for me. My 1950’s City Skirt and my SION skirt are both size large. However, I’m super glad I got this in a M/L because apparently this style is extra stretchy! So, I ordered myself a M/L Marseille in Moss Green to match the tank top.

You can see the Moss Green color on this swatch chart:

If you’re planning to make a first-time order, you can still use Joules15 for the next few days to get 15% off your entire total!

My Style: February 2023

I don’t know if it’s the wishy-washy weather, or the fact that the holidays have passed… but I’ve been finding myself less satisfied with my wardrobe. In fact, I had a bit of a purge in the middle of the month, grabbed items off hangers, listed them and ended selling over a dozen items. It’s good though, because I feel like I’m getting much closer to narrowing down what I want my style to look like. For now, at least.

February was a bit of a mixed bag:

Lots of black and blue this month. Also lots of skirts, which is pretty typical for me. My love of linen hit hard this month (I’ve posted a couple times about this lately), but I think you’ll start seeing some of these pieces creeping into each month’s outfits — especially the bottom three (black dress, blue skirt, black skirt) from notPERFECT LINEN.

At this point, I’m pretty much over winter. But also, I’d be kind of okay with a snow day. Of course, we still have March to get through — which in Maryland could be anything between 20 – 65 degrees. So, let’s cross our fingers for one nice snowstorm and then on to Spring!

February Thrift Haul

After last month’s one item thrift ‘haul’, this month’s thrifted purchases feel downright decadent! Let’s check out this month’s finds:

Eileen Fisher wool sweater, $7.99

I gave you a sneak peek of this sweater in my Sweater Shaver post earlier this month. It is an absolutely fabulous 100% Extra Fine Merino Wool sweater that retails for $228. When I got it home, I washed it on cold and laid it flat to dry. Then, I used my sweater shaver to get rid of any of the little annoying pills and it now looks as good as new!

Marc New York Linen Skirt, $9.49

This skirt was new with the $79 retail tags still attached. Even though it was new, I brought it home and washed it on cold and let it hang dry to get rid of that thrift store smell.

I like the fit of this skirt and the cute pockets, but I’m not sure if I’m fully loving the color. I’ll try it with my summer wardrobe in a few months when it warms up and see if it works. Otherwise, I may dye it a bit darker or a different shade of the current orangy/yellow-ish/brown.

Vintage Brown Linen Skirt, $7.79

Another linen skirt to add to my collection. This one seems a bit less casual, so it will be great for work. It’s a pretty classic fit and has just the right about of swish in the skirt.

The runched waist part is actually supposed to be in the back, but I kind of like it better in the front for visual interest:

Talbots Star Blouse, $9.99

I love the lightweight cotton of this Talbots skirt and the teeny tiny little stars. I was shocked that this was labeled as a 2x, because it basically fits like an oversized large or regular XL. However, I remember someone saying Talbots clothing is notoriously small, so that may be the issue.

Any which way, it fits a little blousy and will be adorable tucked into skirts for work. With that being said, I bought this at Goodwill (typically I only go to 2nd Avenue) and thought it was priced kind of high for a shirt.

I wore it to work on Monday, with a black linen skirt, tights and booties:
