Sheer Beauty

Getting back into the swing of things and acclimating myself with a routine again proved to be a bit of a challenge yesterday. I found myself thinking about when my next vacay is, finding vintage wears and being totally inspired by Abbey Lee (middle pic above...definite lady crush on her!) in a sheer skirt. That being said, I am a huge fan of sheer fabrics in all shapes and sizes.  There is something very sultry, sexy and uber feminine about showing skin that is slightly covered up (oxymoron much?).

  L to R: F21, Topshop, Asos

Is anyone else loving sheer fabrics as much as I am right now?!

ME!!! I recently got a sheer-ish, not completly sheer but very much....from H&M and I love it! Only worn it with a tank under but that is because my high temps are 20, not 70!!!

I love the Reiss top at the end!

I totally get why you have an Abbey Lee crush and I am often hesitant to wear sheer items, but I have a blk H&M top similar to the Asos top you listed and love wearing it cinched with a skinny leopard print belt...makes it feel grounded?

Thanks for the comment!
I am!
I really love sheer fabrics at the moment, maybe it's to do with spring coming and I like to wear delicate loose fitting fabrics then?
Who Knows...But I think sheer fabrics rock! :)
