Chiffon Floaty Things

Joie Silk Georgette Blouse: This top bids you to write me poetry, serenade me, massage my feet, etc.

I know I’m jumping the gun here.  Chiffon is a Spring fabric you say. 

Close your eyes.  Envision a warm summer day, you in your chiffon parachute top, skinnies, accessorized with a statement necklace, bangles up to there and those wooden peep-toe platforms you bought for a song.  Your hair is done in that perfectly unperfect tousled way and the sun is hitting your hair in all the right places.  Suitors swoon and fall over on the sidewalk.  You nonchalantly walk over them without missing a beat.  See, now you want to wear chiffon…like right now.

If you didn’t guess, I’m partial to chiffon.  It’s the bohemian in me, the one that likes the translucence, the floral print, the casual draping and peekabo of a shoulder.  Right now, chiffon tops can be layered with gauzy knit cardi-wraps, with a fitted blazer or a little bolero.  Here is my favourite styling au moment…Volume on top begs for tight on the bottom.

Forever 21 Flowers & Heart Top. Enjoying the bell sleeves and the tiny belt action.

Perfect for an afternoon of heartbreaking: Forever 21 Flowers & Heart Top

Haute Hippie Tee in my favourite colour, champagne. Hrmm...I wonder why.

Black Legging Addiction is the new Crack: Paige Premium Ponte Leggings. I myself swear by my BCBG black legging-pants fusion.
