Keeping Cool in LilySilk

DSC09796-01It’s summer time- that time in Texas when I find myself wondering, “why do I live here?” Couple 45% humidity with 95+ degree heat and the whole Dallas/Fort Worth area feels like a hot sauna. I cannot explain how annoying it is to get ready for the day, step out your door, only to begin melting before you reach the car.  It’s maddening how hot and sticky every part of your body becomes in a matter of minutes.

Now that we’re back in the United States after our tour of Europe we had many errands to run, in all of this glorious heat.  We planned to make a day of it. Later that evening we arranged for the minifashionista to spend time with her grandparents while we caught a movie for date night. (Have you seen Wonder Woman with Gal Gadot or the new Spiderman Movie? What about Planet of the Apes? Which movie did you like better. Leave me a comment below.) With everything in mid, what would keep me cool in the heat, but still be date night ready in conditioned movie theater?

Enter LilySilk! Made from the finest mulbery silk LilySilk’s motto is: “Better silk, better life!” And they are right!DSC09845-01By pairing the v-neck silk camisole with black skinny jeans, my outfit was effortlessly chic. I really love the matte gold hue of this camisole. It can be worn any time of the year, on many occasions, and looks marvelous against tan to dark skin. I kept the gold theme going from top to bottom with my jewelry and sandals. Finally, my snakeskin handbag added interest and pulled the entire look together.DSC09813-01The best part of this outfit is that it’s not only looks chic, but the silk top is very comfortable. The v neck is modest, not showing any cleavage. It feels lightweight and cool in our Texas heat. The milberry silk fabric breathes and glides easily over my skin, not sticking to my body. No sweat stains for me!DSC09791-01Would you like to have this silk top?  I’ve partnered with LilySilk for a giveaway!  Here are the simple rules. 1) Like Lilysilk Women’s Clothing Facebook page. 2) Share the link for the camisole to your personal Facebook page.
