as much as i am ready for all things fall, it has still been pretty hot out so i thought i would share one more summer outfit with you! this embroidered top from Stitch Fix
has been on repeat ever since i got it in my last box. i generally go for neutral colors in my closet but i love the pop of color in this top. there were a few similar tops and dresses i had pinned on my stitch fix inspiration board on Pinterest and am so happy my sytlist saw those and sent me this top! i had meant to post this look weeks ago but i had a little mishap and i wasn’t sure if i would be able to even show it at all! here’s the story:
so my sweet husband did the laundry for me and accidentally shrunk this shirt. like it looked like a preschooler could have worn it. it was so short! i was super sad because i had just gotten it and hadn’t seen anything similar in local stores. i looked at the tag and it said the shirt was made of 100% rayon. anything made of rayon is notorious for shrinking and i really should have known better before i just threw it in the basket. i decided to search google for any hope of ‘unshrinking’ my new top and guess what? i was able to make it good as new!
my secret formula:
mix 1 tablespoon of hair conditioner into 4 cups of warm water. soak garment for 10 minutes. wring it out, lay flat and gently stretch in every way. stretch the garment a few more times as it dries.
i was so relieved that it worked and that the little laundry mistake didn’t completely ruin my new shirt. if you ever find yourself if that situation make sure you give this trick a try. i am so glad i did!
