Knits & Silk




Top: Reformation (Similar: 1, 2) | Skirt: Uniqlo (Similar) | Heels: Charlotte Russe (Similar: 1, 2, 3)

Just another casual luxe combo for ya guys. Yes I'm still obsessed with the silky trend going on and am thus absolutely in love with this square cami top from Reformation that I got a few months ago (so in love to the point where I also got this same exact top in a satin pink color. I couldn't resist!) There are few pieces more versatile than a classic silky cami and you can easily dress them up or down depending on the look you want to go for. For cozier and more casual outings, throw in a good knit piece to keep your look a bit more daytime appropriate but still very much fabulous. I went ahead and threw in a Uniqlo midi pencil skirt to create a look that I found to be very feminine, elegant and simple. The slit was originally in the back of the skirt but since I'm all about that exposed leg action, I wore the skirt backwards so it was more visible. Also, midi skirts in general do not work on me at all unless there is a slit of some sort in the front - I end up looking pretty frumpy and short without it. So yeah, not cute. Another great way to pair knits with silk is by simply layering a cozy cardigan over it, something that I seem to be doing every single day up here in chilly Santa Cruz. This particular shoot was done back down in LA, hence the lack of any extra layers whatsoever. 

Hope everybody is having a fantastic start to 2017!  This year has so far included rainy days, lots of coffee and walks on the beach in cozy cardigans and slip dresses. Pretty fantastic start, if you ask me.
