Feminine Finery

Light, sheer, airy chiffon feminine at it finest. Wear it for every day, mix it with denim.
Chiffon with a baby bump = feminine perfection.
Ruffled and Ruched Chiffon even more lovely.
 These Photos from Stockholmstreetstyle show just how to wear you chiffon in the day.

Camilla and I did a shoot of this vintage chiffon dressing gown back in December. If you weren't following us then you can see the entire post HERE. We are so loving chiffon right now especially for day wear. To me the perfect chiffon blouse paired with denim or a sheer chiffon long dress or maxi skirt worn with just a body suit (only if you have the body to rock it) or short slip so as to not cover too much skin is the ultimate for summer dressing.
  Available at Free People for $98 is this sheer maxi slip dress. You can get your sheer day wear started without too much cost and not much searching. How cute is this with boots and a short slip?
Well, we know it's been forever since our last post. I guess we needed a little break. Things were very busy for a while and we had family here for a week all packed into our tiny house. So with all that, then the dreaded "June Gloom" took over our tiny beach town with temperatures in the 60's, it felt more like December than July. I guess we fell into a state of shock and took a little Vacation.
I needed to end this post with David Hockney because of his swimming pool paintings that came about on his visit to Los Angeles back in the 60's. With all this "June Gloom" I needed to end with sun and pools.
 "Style is something you can use, and you can be like a magpie, just taking what you want. The idea of the rigid style seemed to me then something you needn't concern yourself with, it would trap you."
David Hockney

Enjoy
