While I await more items from my Nordstrom Sale selection, the weather is finally heating up! Sweaters and jeans for fall will definitely not work, so I thought I’d turn back to summer with this cool and chic chiffon floral top look.
We will hit the 80s this weekend, and I am looking forward to it! A top like this in airy chiffon with a fresh orange and pink floral will work just fine. While I’m featuring it here with ankle pants, it would also work with shorts or a skirt to keep things cool.
The Chic Chiffon Floral Top Look
The Chiffon Top and Pants
The colors of this top grabbed my attention first. Love this combo of orange and pink!! The lightweight and chic chiffon floral top fabric gives a loose and comfy fit, as does the adjustable tie neckline.
Besides the fabric and color, the details really make this top stand out. The raglan puffy sleeve gives a lovely romantic look and feel as does the back tie. So darn cute!!
I realized after looking at the first few photos that I could loosen the neckline a bit more for a slightly off-shoulder look. Perfect for an August summer day or night.
The last item in favor of this top? It’s another affordable find by A New Day at Target! So the price is right, and you can add this top to your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
You could easily style this top with any white bottom or even with your favorite jeans or denim shorts in either indigo, light wash, or white. Super cute! Here it’s styled with pale pink ankle pants, an older pair from Wit & Wisdom. Once again, they make their pants and jeans in regular and petite, and I don’t have to hem them!! A big plus!
The Accessories Make the Look!
OK, the jewelry. After several years of statement earrings often serving as the focal point for an outfit, jewelry is trending toward the sedate and subtle. The return of the delicate chain necklace (or several layered together) has made a big comeback as I wrote about in this post: Layered Gold Chain Necklaces are New Again.
The newest trend in earrings is little hoops, called huggies. The pair I’m styling today is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary PreFall Sale, naturally, so they were a good buy. They are little gold hoops with a rose gold charm. Cute and classy! Best of all, they are from Gorjana, a local company from Laguna Beach and they make beautiful quality pieces at fair prices. (They are sold out, but here is a similar huggie earring from Kate Spade, also on sale.)
Of course, I am wearing my iWatch with a pink band. Gotta get credit for those steps, right?! Lol!
Like many of you, I ordered my “NSale fall fashion selections online last Friday. Some pieces, like the oversized orchid sweater I styled recently, arrived, but I need some additional items to come to show you all the whole look. With the delay in deliveries, whether due to COVID19 delays or a super busy Nordstrom team, I am waiting for the items to arrive. Watch for them in posts coming soon. (Though I may be sweating while styling them for the photos!! Lol!)
While we all may be enjoying the fall fashions, there is still plenty of time–and warm weather–to enjoy. After all, my friends, it’s still summer! Try a romantic and chic chiffon floral top for some end-of-summer color!
