I am wearing silk and loving it ! I used to avoid silk, as the "dry-clean-only" tag made me shiver, plus I somehow thought silk was a 'fancy' fabric - a bit too stuffy for me...
But lately, I am not enjoying wearing the traditional tanks and anything that shows too much arm (or boob ;) so, I gave silk a go. I wanted something cool as the temps. here in Cincy are hot and very sticky.
I have always scooped up silk scarves, but never was quite sure what to wear with silk in the summer.... A silk blouse with jeans or pants was all I could think of, til I saw this silk skirt while thrifting and decided the best way to don silk may just be with another piece of silk!
I actually felt well put-together and not so sweaty
all at the same time! Mom would be so proud :)
I brought the outfit into the "now" by mixing and matching prints...
Here's to a terrific, cool week :)
