This time of year it’s anybody’s guess what our weather will be. Over the weekend our temperatures were in scorching 90’s and yesterday it clouded up for rain…very unusual for Northern California! It was warm out so I wore my hair up in the dreaded and fatally unstylish banana clip. You know what they say, ladies, “Ya gotta do what ya gotta do” and sometimes this is all I can do:)
We were heading to a small office party so I test drove my new shirt from LILYSILK. They make beautiful garments and home goods from the finest silk imaginable that is OEKO Certified chemical free.
I am wearing the 18mm Verticle Striped Silk Shirt in ivory.
LILYSILK sent me this beautiful blouse to try and I’m loving the fabric. The classic stripes make this blouse slimming and the gentle shirt tail hemline allows it to worn as a tunic or tucked in.
At first glance, this blouse looks black and white but it’s actually a soft ivory which I find much gentler on my complexion so long as it’s a neutral one and has no warm tones or yellow base.
I rolled the sleeves up to be level with my waist which helps make my legs look longer. I am wearing a large but could have easily worn the medium.
It’s a very lightweight silk crepe de chine that feels cool on hot days. That’s the beauty of silk, it breathes. LILYSILK calls this a shirt but it feels more like a blouse to me because it’s so soft.
For this warm fall day, I wore it tucked into black jeans with some pearl earrings and necklace. Silk and pearls are a classic combo that never fails to feel lovely and elegant to me.
