Silk And Denim Casual Style Feeling Lux!

Hi Everyone. I don’t know what it is, but I always feel more upbeat when I’m wearing silk. I’m sitting here wondering what the difference is and if you feel the same? How it feels on your skin? The lightness of it?


The Boyfriend Style Silk Shirt

Lilysilk has special offers on their clothing range and I was asked to choose an item to share with you. I decided on this Kale Green Box Pleat Shirt. I have sized up here, this is a size 12 I’m wearing and if you remember the last silk shirt in a different style that I shared with you is more fitted and a size 10 here

What do you think of the colour? It’s also available in black too, but I had casual styling in mind for this shirt and knew it would look great with jeans. I don’t often wear black as you know, but I’m tempted to try silk in black for an evening look. I like the large pockets for detail and as I said it feels like a dream on. A whiff of wind makes the silk billow and I just love the lightness of it. Maybe because it’s so light I get a feeling of being super slim!

It’s machine washable. I can vouch for that!

A lot of you asked on the last post that I shared about the cream silk shirt is “Is it washable?” I can tell you that I have washed that shirt many times on a 30-degree wash in my washing machine with Daz. (good ole Daz!) And I have not had any problems at all. No shrinking, easy to iron and no fading, but do keep in mind the shirt is cream. I’m going to try this in the machine the same way and hope it doesn’t fade, otherwise, it will be a hand wash job. If I was wearing the black it would definitely be hand wash!

I’ve teamed the jeans and shirt with Tan and Brown accessories. I haven’t stopped using this bag from Laura Ashley I absolutely love it and it’s such a perfect size. The Wooden watch and tan belt all seem to tie in nicely together.

So. Do you like to wear silk? How does it make you feel? Any different? or does it give you that upbeat feeling? Would you wear it during the day, or would you reserve it for special occasion dressing?

Lily silk has given me a code for 16% off at the checkout – vanityandmestyle

there is also $5 off the silk shirt using the code vanity5off

    Lovely casual chic outfit. A silk blouse and jeans always looks great, and the accessories finish it off perfectly. Thanks for linking up!

    Very stylish Laurie. Machine washable silk! That’s fabulous let alone discount. I actually noticed that there’s a sale at the site too.

    I think the only time I’ve worn silk was on my wedding day, I’d love to give it a try! I think that green looks great with your auburn hair Laurie #sharethejoylinky

    I am very partial to a shirt! So easily overlooked nowadays but although I hate this phrase it is a good “smart casual” option! Love this colour on your Laurie and if it can be machine washed then that is an extra bonus in my book. Thanks for sharing. #TweensTeensBeyond

    Hi Laurie! What a shirt! It’s the sort of style I wear a lot of although I wear more denim/cotton variations but the silk is beautiful! You can wear that dressed up or casual and the green is gorgeous!! I haven’t got much silk in my wardrobe to tell the truth but I would like to add some now I’ve seen that shirt! Looking lovely as per usual 🙂 See you soon! Lisa xx #TweensTeensBeyond

    I love utility shirts in general. Even better if they are silk. The cargo pockets in yours are awesome. Love oversized shirts like this and that color between an olive and hunter green is amazing. I love wearing silk, especially washable.

    Welcome by Thursdays every week and linkup with me. Love your style. Thanks, Ada. =)

    Laurie, this is like my dream outfit! I adore green so that silk shirt is just divine – and the fact it’s silk makes it even better! I do love shirts that are soft like that, they hang so much better than stiff cotton fabrics.

      Thank you Miri. I love the colour! xx

    I don’t often use “divine” but I will here! I love what you’ve done with this super shirt and oh how that colour works for you, dear Laurie.
    I used to wear silk shirts for work, BITD when I could afford dry cleaning (I don’t iron!). They do make a gal feel that bit more pampered. Maybe I’ll dust off the iron and give mine a go!
    Hugs, x.
