The Art of Layering

A detailed peak into my brain and how I put together an outfit*:

P1010827    P1010830

1. Bird print dress from Anthropologie (and my pale, pale skin, lol!) {Anthro ~ $30}
2. A cardigan and tights - Layer 1! {To the Max via Macy's ~ $30}

P1010832    P1010833

3. A blazer to add structure - this is from one of my suits, but I probably wear my suits more as separates than together ;)  {Banana Republic ~ old old old}
4. There wasn't enough structure, so I added a belt.  And my first pick of shoes. {Target ~ $17 & Steve Madden via Famous Footwear ~ $14}

P1010834    P1010839

5. After some more thought, I put on boots with knee high socks instead... because unfortunately it still felt like winter over the weekend.  And that's that, my layered up outfit!  {Bandolino via Macy's ~ $85}

* Full disclosure... I didn't actually wear this today, but last Saturday for a night out with The Husband.  But I'm one of those weird people who sometimes wears similar outfits out on the weekends as I do to work, so I figured this was Employed Panache appropriate ;)
