Summer in Silk

I am really excited to share today's outfit post with you!  You know when you just kind of throw something together and then get 10 times more compliments than you do on a look that was well thought out?  This was one of those.  I have been trying really hard to save for my trip to Savannah, so I've traded shopping online for what I like to call "shopping my closet."










Blouse:  Brooks Brothers (similar) ||  Shorts:  JC Penney (similar)
Studs:  Target  ||  Sunglasses:  Versace (similar)
Arm Cuff:  Rocksbox (use code "Danabff143" for your first month free!)


I was never much of a silk fan, but it has really grown on me lately!  I had lots of great silk pieces my mom had bought me in college that I wasn't wearing, and I'm so glad that I pulled them out for summer because they're so light weight.

Silk can be a little fickle because of sweat, so here are my tips for rocking it in the summer time:
1. Load up on antiperspirant.
2. Choose sleeveless when possible.
3. Go with dark colors on top.

Here are some of my other "silk picks"... and cute arm cuffs because I can't get enough of them!


Are you a fan of rocking silk in the summer?  How was your weekend?

XX,

SS

  5. Oh thanks for your silk tips! I'm the sweatiest person I know (it's awful) and silk terrifies me! Sleeveless makes a lot of sense for the summer.

    I've never really thought to wear silk in the summer but I must try it out now.
    I love that top and feel like it can transition well for multiple different occasions.

  9. Wheww.. I must say, thanks for your silk wearing tips, hun! I love wearing silky clothes, but it depends on my mood, but because I sweat a lot, I can't always wear silky as much as I want cos it's usually hot here in my country.

    Anyway, hope you're having an amazing summer this year! :)

  12. I just bought my first pair of silk shorts from target a couple of weeks ago and love them so much! i wish I could get away with wearing them everyday. Too bad that would be frowned upon! ;)

  16. I love silk for the summer because it is so lightweight! I end up heading to the dry cleaners more often, but I think it's worth it for the look and comfort. Thanks for sharing, you look fabulous!

    xo.

  27. Shopping in your own closet can be SO much fun I've found. I love that moment when you resurrect a piece you had totally forgotten you even had - but you love it - so it's like Christmas!

  30. I LOVE this top, mainly because I'm partial to ruffly tops, but still. I don't think I currently own anything that's silk, but I would imagine that it would be great for the summer! Thanks for the tips, I'll keep those in mind if I happen to bring home a silk top.
