Silk

When I first received these two beautiful silk pieces from BB Dakota, I was in love with the color palette, but  felt it needed something else. Before now, I've only worn these pieces separately, but this military jacket was just the thing to bring down the 'pretty' and make it perfect day wear. I'm really loving the olive green paired with the soft pink, and the rugged jacket mixed with all the pretty tiers & ruffles.





Sigh & back to the grind - the 4 day weekend has come to an end, and it's back to work today. I know many of you had to work yesterday, so I really shouldn't complain. I did love having the extra time to scoot out & take photos, though... on Friday I drove in to town to meet my friend Candice for a little photo excursion, and this is the result! So nice to be able to trade in the tripod for a friend! Thanks for the photos, lovely! 

& wishing you all a happy week!

    silk button-downs are my new obsession. i bought one in taupe about a week ago and have already worn it twice! if i could wear it everyday, i would :)

  10. I like the colour combo as well! I wore a maxi dress on Sunday that was olive and I paired it with a soft green belt- the colours seem contrast but compliment at the same time!
