My first thought was pale colors and either natural or floaty fabrics, but I wanted to avoid the music festival feel of broomstick skirts and peasant tops. The bow shorts below dress up the sheer blouse. The structured straw clutch, rope headband, and beads keep the tone laid back chic.
The ethereal hippie wouldn't have a problem with mixing glamour and casual. Here I layered a denim jacket over a sparkly chiffon cocktail dress.
For a casual denim look, add an element of airiness with lace. The print flats are both fun and light.
Maxi skirts are in right now, but you can wear one for a casual summer look without looking like a Dead Head. Here I set the skirt off with a silk tank. The ruffle bag and piles of bangles poshify the outfit.
If you'd like me to take a crack at styling you, leave me a few sentences describing you or direct me to some pictures that inspire you.
