Spring Layers

May 7, 2014

I haven't gone out to do my own outfit photos in a while so I found yesterday the perfect opportunity because a) I finally got a day off after 7 days o.O and b) it was so nice out! I actually had too many layers on...summer will be here before we know it.

So lets talk about layering. I've been really inspired by the fabulous Lua of le-happy.com for this look. She effortlessly layers her pieces in the most clever ways that I would seriously have never known if she didn't write about it! So I layered a t-shirt over top this red floral dress by tucking it into a belt...ingenious! The dress actually has a stain on the top part, so that worked out pretty well. Lastly, I added my denim button up to give it more structure.

I also wanted to talk about my t-shirt! My friend April gave it to me...if you can't make out the detailing its of constellations with the state of Michigan outlined by connected stars. I love the *Mitten* state so much, and this shirt is also super comfy because its an American Apparel 50/50. You can never have too many black tees in my book.

Denim button up: thrifted /// T-shirt: c/o a friend /// Skirt (dress): H&M /// Shoes: Mudd

  3. This is a cool ensemble. I got a nice top from my fav shop on eBay americanfashionfox.com and a thrifted dress. I might try this as well. I'm a fan of Lua P as well.

  4. I love your style! You look so cool girl! <3

  5. love this outfit, everything looks great and you look amazing. I love Lua, you're right, she layers and comes up with the best styling and the dress and top tucked with a belt is just ingenious :D amazing <3


  6. WOAH, tucking it into the bell really IS genius! that's so clever of her, i'd never guess that was a dress. and seriously, summer is coming up super fast! i still want a chance to layer up, haha

  7. Tucking your tee into a belt is SUCH a good idea! I never know how to layer tops over dresses that aren't cropped because they fall in such an unflattering place. And can we just talk about how Pennsylvania is finally getting warm? I'm so pumped!
