Lookbook: Layers

The weather is turning cold here so out come my layers and boots!

This has become my go-to outfit on cold days. The annoying thing about the cold weather is that it is so cold outside but when you get inside, the heat is usually turned up so you get hot again. Layering is the perfect solution to this. I never shop in Express but they love to send me coupons/discounts to shop in their store so I stopped in one time last summer and found these mini dresses that were perfect to throw on when I was traveling. I bought them in 3 different colors and turns out they are one of my favorite little dresses! I used to just pack away my summer dresses when fall came along but lately have been trying to incorporate some of my summer wardrobe and make it wearable into the fall. Adding the leggings and the shawl cardi was the perfect solution.

What I’m wearing:
Cardi: Michael Stars
Dress: Express
Leggings: Forever 21
Boots: Aldo


I’m also not an Aldo shopper (this is my first pair of shoes from the store) but I was looking for flat boots for the longest time and spotted these in there. It was just the right amount of scrunch I was looking for and the best part is that there is actually a wedge hidden inside, so although it looks like I’m wearing flats, I still have a bit of height! Yay for secret wedges!

I know everyone wants one of these shawl cardis lately, I got mine at Revolve Clothing. You can still buy mine here, I also bought the purple one. I love these! they are the best to just throw over every outfit but still look cute.

The good thing about taking pictures of your outfits is you can really see the flaws. Since the dress and the cardi are so baggy, it made me look rather chubby. Next time I wear this, I’ll probably wrap a thin belt around my waist to give me more definition and not look as boxy.

I’ve been playing around with ShopStyle and I put together a similar look for you!

And I just had to have the added bonus of Savvy lookbook:
What she’s wearing:
Hoodie: From Brass Plum dept. at Nordstrom
Collar and Leash: Juicy Couture
look how cute the bow is!

The pink thing I’m holding is the scarf I made for her. Yes, I am the girl that dresses up her dog, but Savvy actually enjoys wearing clothes. J always says he can’t believe that I found a dog that was so perfectly me.

    I think the outfit is adorable! I wonder if F21 has those leggings in white. White would go great with a green babydoll dress I have…ideas.

    Bogey likes wearing clothes too. I just can never find anything that fits him. He’s def on the smaller side of the minis so stuff I find for him is either too big or to small
