Summer in Silk....

Happy Monday everyone :)
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 wanted to keep my 'style' in the mix and not look like I was on a job interview (though I think this would be great), so the skirt was luckily above the knee and I paired some vintage T-straps, brooch, necklace and of course a silk scarf in my hair ;)
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 :)
Attire: Skirt: Banana Republic

Such a pretty and ladylike look but still very rock chick and you, Reva.
I love silk, I just handwash it with some grated soap. x

I love the headband, and that is such a pretty feminine print. Hope you enjoy your Monday. ;)

You look very sweet and feminine in these shots but with a little edge. I love your t-strap shoes as much as I love Mary Janes.
