Sunkissed Silk






Top: Brandy Melville | Shorts: H&M (Similar) | Heels: Target (Similar) | Bag: Michael Kors | Bracelet: The Limited 

If there is any way to instantly incorporate some luxe into your outfit, it's with a silky touch. I've been obsessed with silk lately, and was thus absolutely ecstatic when finding that Brandy Melville started up a gorgeous collection of silky pieces sold at a price point just as addicting. Because let's be real here: as stunning as silk is, we all know it's not exactly the cheapest material to get your hands on. The blouse you see here is from this very line, and I may or may not have splurged on a bunch of other items from this collection as well (....I definitely did). Golden hour, as always, was the perfect time to complement the stunning sheen of this blouse. To pair alongside this piece, I threw in some rich shades of denim and tan and some subtle hints of gold on the wrists and fingers. This blouse is also super light and airy, making it perfect for the warm weather LA has finally gone back to enjoying. For shoes, my favorite pair of nude, heeled sandals matched perfectly with the laidback yet luxe aesthetic of this outfit. 

Makeup-wise, I opted for a subtle, bronze shimmer on the cheekbones accompanied with my signature cat eye and a natural, matte lip. Contour consists of Anastasia Beverly Hill's illuminator in Peach Nectar and the bronzer from Maybellines Facestudio Master Contour kit, while eyeshadow is all from Urban Decay's Naked Palette. Lastly, lips are "Ruffle Trim" from NYX's absolutely addicting Lip Lingerie line. As mentioned in my previous beauty post, this shade is perfect for everyday use and my daily go-to! 

I've got a few more silk and denim looks planned so expect to continue seeing this pairing on here. They combine to create that luxe, California-cool vibe that I'm definitely all about, so you know I've just got to rock it for myself.
