Outfit Love: My thrifty silk shorts

There is nothing quite like finding a beautiful silk item in a thrift store! The sheen of silk attracts me like a light attracts a moth. Although silk is very fragile, it is one of my favourite natural fibers. It feels amazing against your skin, it's light and airy, perfect for summer! I just added leggings to make my outfit a bit warmer for our nippy Autumn weather. This pair of shorts is also ideal for our windy conditions, you don't have to worry about it blowing up like a skirt would.
  • Textile necklaces - OddOneOut, these range from R60 to R200
  • Vintage leather belt, this super awesome belt, I found in a thrift store in Pretoria, East-lynn
  • Vintage floral silk shorts, found these beauties at Matchbox (see my Friday Finds post, here)
  • Leather wedge sandals, these edgy wedges I found at the Rage factory shop in Pretoria, Atterbury
-just love the stud details on the belt and on the wedges-
