spring flowers

skirt/dress (old, similar, similar)/blouse (mm couture, similar)/sweater (similar)/shoes (sole society, similar)/purse (Tory Burch)/sunglasses (Prada

This past weekend the sun was shining and it looked like spring (from inside the house.) It was still a bit nippy so I grabbed my trusty $5 cropped sweater (which has proved itself to be a real powerhouse these past few weeks) and threw it on over my best (only) long sleeved floral blouse. I think I'm starting to get the hang of this layering thing - this ensemble here, my friends, is a sweater over a blouse over a dress. Sometimes dresses make the best skirts (with the right top of course.)

an unlikely pairing

sweater (about 12 years old - no joke, similar), blouse (gap, similar)/jeans (mother denim, similar, lot of options here)/heels (madewell)/sunglasses (Prada)/bag (Tory Burch

Sometimes the two outcasts in your closet make for the best pairing. Take for example this cropped (too short) sweater and this blouse thats too baggy on me to be worn by itself. Neither will work alone, however, together they are a match made in heaven.
