Lemon Chiffon

At first I didn’t think much of it but then it rattled around in my mind and popped back into my thoughts a week later.  Something about this color combination speaks to me.  It speaks to me the way a warm ray of sun speaks to my skin on a cool fall day, or a cool breeze whispers in my ear on a warm day.  It speaks to me the way a delicious light, from scratch, lemon chiffon pie speaks to my tongue; with a lightness, an unobtrusive gentleness, a fun youthfulness with some sophistication--- Wait, this is lemon chiffon pie and I will be wearing it.  Yummy. 

I saw a picture of Delfina wearing Valentino in Bazaar and it has haunted me.

My first iteration of this color combination is pulled from the depths of my closet.  It consists of a Limited top from the 1990s’, winter white wide leg Massimo Dutti pants I bought in Hong Kong, and a thrifted yellow polyester vintage sleeveless button down.  I plan to continue to look for methods to bake this color combo in additional ways.  I am on the hunt for a bolt of neon yellow chiffon.  I plan to roll myself in it and call it a day.
