Happy Tuesday ladies. Who’s ready for Thanksgiving? I’m a guest again this year and happily bringing my famous Pecan Pie. The recipe I use is wickedly rich, but then I add a smidge more butter and loads more pecans which knocks the calorie count out of the park. I’ll try to limit myself to one slice but I’m not making any promises.
With that attitude, I imagine I’ll be intentionally dressing to take pounds off before this holiday season is over. There’re many
tricks ways to dress so we look taller and slimmer but the simplest is column dressing.
Column dressing means wearing one color head to toe. Today’s look is close enough to give a similar effect with deep European navy, dark denim, and black boots. Simply combine items in the same or similar color family. It draws the eye up which makes us look slimmer. It also helps if they’re a similar depth of color.
This silk blouse from LilySilk is a deep European navy silk. It avoids the boxy look that many longer tops have because it has a drawstring just above the waist which creates a peplum effect.
I opted for simple hoop earrings and no necklace for a clean look. You could easily jazz this outfit up with a sparkly necklace and dressier shoes.
I’m loving navy for a change and this deepest European navy is the most formal.
Now onto our faces. Literally.
Do you sleep on your back? I try, I really do but I always end up flipped over with my face smashed into my pillow. It’s the absolute worst thing you can do to your face but I can’t seem to help myself.
So what’s the next best thing? Sleeping on a real silk pillowcase. Besides looking gorgeous, they’re famous for preventing bed head. They are also gentler on our face than other pillowcases. They keep our face hydrated because they don’t wick moisture out of our skin.
Lilysilk makes them in every size imaginable in tons of colors. I chose the zippered case and soft ivory because it makes my bed look like an oasis I can’t wait to dive in to. Face up of course.
LilySilk is giving my readers a 15% discount with the code awellstyledlife at checkout.
Think about treating yourself, or any woman on your gift list, to some silk pillowcases.
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day.
