Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope the 3rd week of 2017 has been treating you well so far. As most of you may know from my Instagram posts, I spent the last days of holidays with my family in San Francisco. It really was great to be home and giving a fresh New Year start with my family’s love. Now that I’m feeling reenergized, it’s time to tackle the new week ahead- it’s going to be a busy one!

As I’m sitting on the plane and writing this blog post, I keep thinking to myself that no matter how many years passes or how many times I get to go back home to visit my family, saying goodbye is always the hardest part of the trip. Nothing is more satisfying than chatting with your friends and family face to face than over face time. I understand that it has been my choice to live in a different state due to many personal reasons, but the feeling of getting choked and the watery eyes as I’m stepping out of my mom’s car every time I’m departing will never let me go…
These past two years, as soon as spring knocks on the door, I get excited to start wearing my silk print pants. The last thing we like specially in summer are sticky clothes hugging our body; so silk makes life easier and makes us enjoy our summer days even more without shaving. 🙂 They are super lightweight, soft, and since the color is light, they don’t absorb any heat. I like wearing these kind of pants with mute tops, regular silk tops to dress them up or crop tops for more of a casual vibe. Surprisingly they go with all different sorts of shoes. I will post some of my favorites from this season right below the post.
Some tips that will help your print pants shopping easier:
To my petite friends:
Since these types of pants could be overwhelming on You, look for the Ankle length tailored ones. That way it’s not too much pants for You. As far as the top goes, since the main focus is the pants, I like to recommend something mute/solid. This way you will look slimmer and slightly taller. From my personal experience with my clients, smaller the prints are better because the big prints can be overpowering sometimes. 🙂
To my tall friends:
You have the advantage of pulling off almost any prints, big or small and wearing looser pants as well as tailored. I would still recommend solid tops unless you like to mix prints, which it needs its own blog post. Also, waist length jackets are perfect to form distinction between your torso and lower half. They also add more proportion to a long torso and will help break up the line of your outfit for added interest. If the sleeves are short, don’t worry, just roll’em up for added style.
I absolutely love wearing leather and denim jackets with my silk pants in Fall Season.
For This Outfit,
I went with a casual weekend look. This casual look is great for Sunday brunch/lunch, shopping, or even a romantic picnic. I love pairing these pants with light grey and bluish purple tops. This time I chose a bluish purple crop top and wore a denim jacket over it. For finishing up the look, I wore a pair of ballet flat shoes with a touch of gold to spice up the look. Last but not least, instead I wearing a handbag I wore my wallet on a chain, which has been worn for over 4 years everyday.
