The weather in Charlotte this weekend has been amazing… Honestly, I really shouldn’t just say the weekend, it’s been pretty incredible for awhile. We’ve reached nearly 70 degrees for several days in a row and it feels great. I guess the downside is that it puts a bit of a damper on the whole holiday “weather outside is frightful” thing but oh well… I’m sure cooler weather will be coming soon.
Anyway, I’m sure you noticed in my last post that I sported a short sleeve blazer look with a long sleeve tee. With the great weather this weekend, I thought it would be a perfect time to experiment again with that layering style. Layering is an essential part of cooler weather fashion. And I find myself doing it more and more since the weather here has been even more fickle than usual. Just as the denim vest and classic cardigan have become a perfect transitional and layering piece, a short sleeve or cropped sleeve blazer can serve that purpose as well. But the truth is, I’m not a big vest person and the cardigan can be so overdone. So, for me, this gives another unexpected layering option. In fact, I love the idea of this look not being just for spring and summer. It can be a staple piece year round! Just take your blazer or jacket and layer it right over your long sleeve tee or turtleneck (and don’t shy away from mixing prints and colors when you do).
What I’m Wearing: Kenya L Designs Blazer – purchase here, J. Crew Turtleneck, J. Crew Mid-Rise Skinnies, Quipid Riding Boots, Versona Accessories (new Versona Accessories I might add. Just picked up that awesome necklace last weekend (on clearance no less))!! Woo-hoo!
What’s your favorite way to layer? Let me know. Have a good week everyone!!!!
