Lady Layers

Lady Layers (2 of 5)

H&M Tweed Jacket, LOFT Sweater, American Eagle Jeans, John Fluevog Boots, Vintage Purse

Sometimes the best outfits come together accidentally.  By chance this tweed jacket and striped sweater were hanging next to each other in my closet.  I was just beginning to think that I had nothing to wear when I spotted them.  A pair of distressed denim, lilac studded boots, and a vintage purse later, the rest is history.  This is the perfect combination of pulled together and comfortable for a rainy afternoon spent at the museum.  I knew that I probably did too much outfit planning in my head, but now I know I’m doing it subconsciously as well.

Transition Period

Transition Period

J. Crew Sweater, Ralph Lauren Vest, LOFT Trousers, Cole Haan Brogues, Vintage Diamond Earrings, Anthropologie Gold and Turquoise Earrings, Vintage Bangle

One of my biggest pet peeves is dressing inappropriately for the weather.  And Mother Nature certainly has been throwing some curve balls with 50 degree days and 30 degree nights, making it hard for me not to be annoyed with my outfit choices at some point during the day.  The transition period between seasons is always the hardest to dress for, but can be done by dressing in layers.  A down vest over a light sweater was perfect during the day, and when the temperature dropped down at night I replaced my vest with a warmer coat and I was good to go!

These Boots

Blending Into The Background

Banana Republic Sweater, Splendid Long Sleeve Tee, J. Brand Jeans, Cole Haan Boots, LOFT Sunglasses, Gifted Elm City Jewelers Locket, Charles Hubert Watch

These boots were made for brunch with friends and some light shopping, which did involve some walking, so I guess it would be accurate to say ‘these boots were made for walking.’  They were also made for my enjoyment, and to be worn with skirts, pants, and dresses.  They were made to last because I’ve been wearing them for about six years now.  They were made to dress up the most simple outfits because otherwise I would basically just be wearing jeans and a t-shirt.  But mostly they were made for someone who does not live alone because I cannot for the life of me take them off without help.  Thank you Max for your past, present, and future help.

Saturdays Are For Shopping

Saturday's Are For Shopping (2 of 6)

Guess Coat, French Connection Sweater, LOFT Shirt and Sunglasses, Zara Pants, Naturalizer Boots, Orli Purse, Charles-Hubert Watch, Gifted Elm City Jewelers Locket, Banana Republic Earrings

This past Saturday some of my lady friends and I headed up to Kittery, Maine for a day of outlet shopping.  My goal was to be warm, comfortable, and fashionable while scoring some major deals.  Multiple layers kept me warm, low heeled ankle boots and a hands free purse kept me comfortable, and mixing patterns and textures had me feeling fashionable.  Check, check, and check!  All the layers did make trips to the dressing room a bit difficult, but it was so worth it!
