layering at the flower shop

{thrifted dress (amazing paisley option here), Autumn Cashmere vest, Empyre blazer, Cynthia Vincent for 12th St belt (sale option), Forever21 necklace, Franco Sarto boots, Dior tights, H&M beret}

The art of layering is one only perfected after years of living and working in a chilly city. Now I'm not saying I've perfected it- because sometimes a fur vest just won't work under a blazer, no matter how hard you try to squeeze those arms in- but, I'd like to think I'm getting pretty good at it. It's all about thin layers- is what I heard on the Wendy Williams show the other day (How you doin'?!) I also think the belt helps cinch everything in too- while it may cut you in half, this accessory is great at accentuating your pretty curves. 

How about that stunning flower shop in the back? Anyone else love strolling by the flower market on their lunch?

  4. You looks fabulous as always. I'm still working on my layers game so I still have hits and misses. I love the mosaic print feel to the dress, the cozy textures and pop of color on your nails!

  11. Ok, you just got pinned girl! :-)
    This is a great look, you really have perfected the art... I spotted a girl on the tube in London yesterday doing a fur vest over her black leather jacket and it looked wicked ... so guess what I'll be wearing on Monday...!
