What to Wear- layers


what to wear

This week for What to Wear, we are wearing layers. I realllly love wearing layers, it’s such a great way to remix a piece. That is one of my favorite parts about winter, because AZ summers make layering pretty impossible. This blouse I found at Buffalo Exchange is a fun one to layer under dresses because of the tie and the sleeves that add a little drama.

What to Wear layers

dress, shoes: Target (dress styled for summer here)
blouse, ring: Buffalo Exchange (also worn here)
belt: thrifted


I really would’ve liked to pile on the layers, but while the rest of the country has been battling sub-zero temps, we’ve been hovering in the 70s and this look is more realistic. In fact just yesterday I had to take my car to the mechanic to get the AC fixed. Crazy.

Try to ignore the messy background in these photos- the holidays don’t really present time for yard work, and sometimes the place with the best light is not the cleanest ;)

Want to show us one of your layered looks? Link up over at Gypsy in Jasper! The new year is a perfect time to start linking up and we’d love to see some new faces!

    That blouse is amazing! Perfect for layering! I am jealous of your messy yard because I can see grass. I haven’t seen grass in my yard since November. HA!

  2. I second Lisa’s jealousy! I don’t mind the snow, but it just seems to last too long. It outstays its welcome, in my books. ;)

    I love the blouse too. I am terrible at layering with dresses. I think you’ve nailed it with this look!

    Oh I really love that color combo! I was in the same boat with you with the layer haha. It really hasn’t been all that cool, haha. Also I am pretty sure we are wearing the same shows from Target haha!

    Lucky lucky you! I wish putting on layers looked like this over on my side of the country…hehe. Love this Lisa – it reminds me of a modern day/more mature Heidi :-) … so cute! The chartreuse-yellow blouse is the perfect amount of cheer for these dreary grey days. Happy Monday!
