I couldn’t be more excited to contribute to such a lovely, wholesome blog. Fine Linen & Purple: a blog dedicated to inspiring your every day woman (young, old, married, single, mother, working or work at home) to value and embrace her feminine dignity through fashion and healthy body image.

When I was six years old, I detested buttons.
Buttons on shirts, buttons on pants, buttons on coats.

Ah, yes, I fondly recall the uncomfortable yet inevitable annoyance of feeling the stirrup slowly inching its way off of my heel underneath my socks and shoes as I ran across the playground.
So here we are today. I’m 28, button abhorrence forgotten (until this moment). However, I’ve realized I have prejudices about other kinds of clothes– wait, wait, wait…
