layer up

I used to think that when someone talked about wearing "layers" they were referring to tees and sweaters. I have come to learn, though, that layering jackets and vests (in addition to tees and sweaters) can be a great way to mix up your wardrobe and stay warm.

mad for plaid

lace top - old(similar)/Madewell vest - (here - sold out online but check your local store)/Edyson Jeans (here - in black)/Madewell Shoes (here)/Prada Sunglasses (here)/Clare Vivier Clutch (here)

This vest is one of those items that I would have NEVER tried on had I not seen multiple other people rocking the buffalo plaid trend. Needless to say I'm so so glad I did. It's the perfect add on to any outfit. Thank you fellow fashion lovers and thank you Madewell.
