layers

{H&M dress, thrifted vest, Gap cardigan, Steve Madden boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, J. Crew necklace, F21 earrings}

If there is one thing I love more than J. Crew and painting my nails new colors each week, its layering. Layering can do wonders for what your working with, and it just so happened that this very strange pairing of the cutoff vest, long drape-y cardigan and A-line hippie dress meshed well with a little thought, a lot of jewelry and a major platform! The aforementioned "A-line hippie dress" is an absolute favorite, and even though it reminds me of a throwback mama used to wear in another time, I love that I actually scored it in present day!

  5. I agree with you, layering is such an essential part of fashion. It is definitely not always easy, but you're working it! The print/ colors of that dress are amazing.
