Silk

If I had to choose a favorite fabric, it would be silk. I realize caring for it requires a little extra effort, but I also know that "Dry Clean Only" is actually just a suggestion. Trust me, woolite and the delicate cycle is just fine; a little ironing before wear and it will look perfect.

As much as I appreciate 'wash and wear' fabrics, there is something about silk that just makes me feel so much more chic, and when I can get a silk blouse for under $10 at ThredUP, well you know, it's what I'm all about.

I am participating in the ThredUP $150 style challenge. See my other looks here!

  3. A silk blouse for $10? Yes, please! I admit, I'm a bit of a silk addict... for me, the extra quality of the fabric (versus, say, viscose) fully justifies the extra expenditure and care. But if all I had to do was the extra care, that would be even better :) I love this colour combination, and that black bag is such a perfect classic!

  7. Adorable top, I'm a huge fan of silk to is always so fresh and elegant, although taking care of it requires a bit more of time, I'm so unbelievably clumsy so everytime I wear silk I prefert not to eat ha ha. The pendant such a subtle and pretty piece.

  12. What a steal for that silk top! I always steer clear of the dry clean only stuff though. I am lazy and it seems like so much effort. Shoot, I can't even iron half the time ha ha! This is a really pretty color combo too.

  15. I'm definitely starting to realize that silk is amazing! Although, I'm always scared about the wash instructions. I don't dry clean anything so I need clothes that I can wash or hand wash. I definitely want to add more silk items to my closet!
    And I love that bag! I've been dying to add a Coach Willis bag to my closet for FOREVER!

  18. I love how your pendant perfectly matches your skirt. I didn't realize that was a Royal Silk shirt - I know one of the founders!
