layers are my friend

i love layers. any season. any weather. don't matter...gimme layers. seriously, even in the boiling hot summers here in north carolina i rarely have just one layer on. it's weird and unnatural but it's who i am. ok, not really, but i've been layering my clothes since about 2001, so i'm kinda stuck in my ways. 

it's getting chilly here in these parts...so fall layers are in full effect. 

i started with this new dress from francesca's. i went there the other day [what else is new?] and they were having a sale: buy one, get one dress 50% off. how could i not? plus, there's nothing more comfortable than a knit dress and leggings in the fall. dream of dreams to wear that everyday. and now i have two more dresses to add to my fall arsenal. 

dress: francesca's
leggings: h & m
boots: wet seal
earrings: elisabeth ashlie jewelry

it was a little chilly outside, so i decided to add this scarf. and, bonus...i'm wearing stripes with stripes! eeeek! it can be done!

scarf: gap outlet 

and finally, i added my fall jacket because, well, i love it and it was cold. 

jacket: banana republic outlet 



layers can be your friend, too. i'll share.

  5. Cute! I've really got to start wearing leggings/tights. I absolutely hate tights.. maybe its cause I hate something so tight on my legs, but regardless I love the look! BTW--i've never heard of Francesca's either.

  6. super cute...what's your take on sweaters that hang lower than the dress? is that a "fashion do not"?

  7. kelly - i don't know that it's necessarily a fashion don't but i do try to avoid it. mostly because it just looks a little strange from behind and can sometimes look more like a robe than a sweater. if it's slightly longer, i'd say go for it. but, if there's a significant difference in length, maybe try to find a different sweater! but, honestly, fashion is subjective sometimes. if you like it, you wear it! that's the philosophy i try to keep when getting dressed in the morning!
