Hometown Glory

 

The best way to keep cool in the southern summers is to go light, in both fabrics and colors choices. This cream duo allowed me to catch the cool breeze and miss the heat wave that usually follows. Paired with a denim button down, this look is great for any casual outing!

Note: Cotton is a more ideal fabric over silk for keeping you cool. If you're incorporating a silk piece into your summer wardrobe, be sure it fall under these three categories: loose- fitting, light (in color) and thin!

Beautiful cityscape backdrop is of my hometown, Birmingham, AL.
