3 Ways to Wear White Linen Relaxed Crops

April 28, 2023

Happy Friday! Because I didn’t get to take many of my mirror selfies this week, I’m going to hold the few photos of my real life outfits for next Friday. And I wanted to share these darling linen relaxed crops with you because they’re 30% off just through this weekend. So I’m sharing three ways to wear these or other linen ankle pants.

These linen relaxed crops are from J.Jill and they feature the beautiful quality linen that I’ve come to expect from that brand. The relaxed crops also come in a sophisticated black/white weave. Like most J.Jill clothing, they run a little large, so I’ve sized down to a small comfortably.

The linen relaxed crops feature a flat front with a faux zipper placket and an elasticized back waistband. They have a side zipper and button closure. But they do also have small front angled pockets. I personally like that these relaxed crops have a wide straight leg, but the pants legs are not too wide. And if you iron a crease into the front like I did they look more straight than wide.

Just through Sunday, J.Jill is offering 30% off all full-price pants (exceptions apply), including these linen relaxed crops. And these linen relaxed crops are available in petite, regular and tall sizes from x-small to 4x. The website says they run small, but I found them to run slightly large and am wearing a size small.

Unfortunately the textured shell I styled the linen relaxed crops with first seems to be sold out. They do still have the coordinating cocoon cardigan. But you could create a similar look with a solid t-shirt or other lightweight sweater top.

Next I styled the white relaxed crops in a column of white with my white reversible tank and a linen button tab sleeve shirt, also from J.Jill. My linen button up shirt is from last year, but J.Jill has these beautiful linen shirts every year in a handful of beautiful colors.

Tank and Shirt

You could also wear a tank of a different color, but I love a column effect under an opened button-up shirt like this. I’m wearing my true size medium in the tank, but, as usual, I sized down to a small in the button-up shirt.

Most everything I’m showing in today’s post is from J.Jill. But my watch is from Nordgreen (use code KAYHRMS for 15% off) and my jewelry is all from Julie Vos. I have just fallen in love with these rich 24k gold plated pieces.

I finished this outfit with my gold slide sandals from M.Gemi. They fit true to size and feel really great on your feet after you let them break in a little with wear.

And finally I styled the white linen relaxed crops with a simple linen relaxed peasant top. Mine is in hot pink, but the peasant top also comes in cerulean blue and pineapple yellow. It runs large and I sized down to a small.

For this outfit I switched back to my nude colored Born Inlet sandals, which I’ve had for a few years now. They’re very comfortable and run true to size.

Peasant top and Relaxed Linen Trousers

You may notice that I am wearing the white reversible tank under my linen relaxed peasant top, but that was only so that I could change tops easily between photo sets. You don’t really need a tank under the peasant top for modesty.

J.Jill Style

I love wearing linen in the summer and plan to practically live in it this year. Don’t worry about the wrinkles. They are indeed characteristic of this natural fiber fabric. Just consider them part of the charm of relaxed summer style and let it go!

Don’t forget to check out J.Jill for other great styles. I especially love their linen. And their full-price pants are all 30% off just through the weekend.

Blessed for My Day

Jesus did indeed teach many wise lessons to His disciples, and we should certainly take note of them for our modern lives. And He did also heal the sick, give sight to the blind and cast out demons. But Jesus never swerved from His intended goal – to seek and to save the lost. I’ve discovered that if I want to truly know my Lord and hear His heart, I need to remember that salvation was and is His ultimate goal.

When I keep Jesus’ goal in mind, that understanding helps to guide my own priorities. It reminds me that all else is loss in comparison. It’s so easy to become distracted with the happenings of this world. But I want to remember that Jesus has sent us on a mission to bring in the harvest. We also are to seek the lost and bring them to the Savior. How can we contribute to that mission this very day?

For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. ~ Luke 19:10

  1. Hi Kay those outfits today are Beautiful and Fresh looking , they would be perfect for a Summer Holiday ♥️Xx

  2. Well I LOVE your hair pulled back in that new look you’re rocking! I wish i could fix mine that way! Also, I’m just curious….. you know that green sweater you left at your Mom’s — I’ve been wondering if it would show up anywhere or did that window close (what with the linen season emerging) and maybe you returned it to Talbots!!

    1. Funny you should ask. I got it when I got here and wore it just two days ago. It’s from JCrew The weather was quite cool the first few days we were here so the sweater was perfect. Now it’s warmed up, but I will undoubtedly need it again in Ohio. It’s quite lovely and the green is beautiful.

  3. I love linen in all of its iterations but I didn’t pay attention because your new hair style steals the show!

  4. Looking very French Chic in your outfit with the pink blouse and beautiful hairstyle. That little lift in the hair is oh so flattering!

    1. Hi Jayne. My hairdresser says it’s a layered medium length bob with lots of body and texture. Thank you.

  5. I am curious how you care for your linen. At one time I ironed it. Past few years I have been hanging to dry and sometimes touching it up in the dryer or spraying wrinkle release on it. I am conflicted about starting out with wrinkles that are just going to get more wrinkled.

    1. Hi Sandy. I wash in the machine and lay flat on the drying rack to dry or hang. But I do iron it. I like to at least get out the bumps and lumps along the seams and pockets and waistband, etc. I do find that linen wrinkles less and less with wear too. The fabric softens and becomes more flint over time. And linen is great for a humid day because the humidity acts like a steamer and gives the fabric more body and fewer wrinkles.

  6. That blue shell looks so good on you. I like how the small cap sleeve softens the look that a tank top does not. As always, you’re a breath of fresh air, Kay
