Orange Silk & Summer Whites


Hi Everyone! Happy Thursday! Just a quick hello with a splash of orange today. 



I am in love with these silk tops from Uniqlo Silk Collection and highly recommend them. They come in a variety of colors and sometimes prints too. They remind me a lot of the Equipment Blouses, but at a more affordable price, especially when you see similar styles made with polyester available at higher prices. I purchased this shirt on sale for $19.90, only the orange and pink one were on sale, but these shirts are originally marked at $49.90 for 100% Silk. I am wearing an XS, and the shoulders fit nicely so I would say they are petite-friendly. The body fits loose, but drapes very nicely when tucked in. This silk top is a great basic to add to your wardrobe, and I see myself wearing it throughout the year. 


Top : Uniqlo sz XS (here), Bottom : Express sz 00 (here)
Shoes : Kate Spade sz 5 (here), Bag : All For Color via Amazon (here - last seen here)
Accessories : Belt from American Apparel, Bracelet from J. Crew (here),
Necklace from J. Crew (here), Rings from Gorjana (similar here)
