sweet sheer summer

With this lovely breeze and cooler weather in Chicago, the fashion doors have opened and I am back to looking through my pants and long sleeved tops! I opted for a sheer floral top today with my pastel pink pants. You can never have too much pink, in my opinion.

In the picture below you can see the floral detail and how there are two pieces of fabric (ties) that hang down the front of this shirt.  Personally, I like to leave these pieces untied for a laid back look, but the top does look great with the fabric ties in a bow as well.

To dress the look up a little, I added my metallic heels.

There is no red in the top, but I think the red nails are in theme with the romantic and feminine vibe of this outfit.

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I do try and practice what I preach when I’m putting together my daily work ensemble.  With this outfit, I thought pink khaki pants might not make sense with a sheer top, but I tried them together anyway. I was surprised at how much I liked this pairing. The whole vibe of the outfit is very feminine and breezy, but the heels keep it from looking too laid back for work. 

2) I posted about DSW yellow stickers yesterday. These metallic heels are great for work because they instantly dress up any work outfit.  The phrase “work appropriate metallic platform heels” might sound like a complete misnomer, but with the heel not being too tall and with an otherwise conservative outfit, these heels definitely look great at work! Whenever I’m unsure about how something may look together, I just try it on. Sometimes pieces I thought would look great together look completely odd, but other things (ie metallic heels and pink khakis) end up looking like a perfect match. 

Thanks for visiting, readers, and for sharing in my fashion adventures!

  1. This whole ensemble is awesome. So inspiring! The nails are just the icing on the cake! You look like you took hours to piece this together but I have a feeling it was a super nature thing for the Fashion Huntress.
