Lots of Layers

I don’t know about your weather, but the weather in Savannah has been crazy. One day it is almost 80 degrees and the next it is has dropped below 30. Some days, there is even a difference of 40 degrees in one day! How do you even dress for that? Luckily, I have learned to layer like a pro so I am comfortable all day long.

This look was perfect for a day out exploring out beautiful city. No matter how they weather changed during the day, I was able to add or remove layers to stay comfortable. I started with the cutest LuLaRoe Carly dress. Instead of wearing it as a dress I knotted it on the side so it could be worn as a tunic. The Carly is a super versatile dress and can be worn so many ways. I have worn mine as a dress, with leggings and knotted. Recently I saw a video on how to fold it and tie to be worn as a wrap dress and I cannot wait to try that look. Since I was wearing the Carly as a tunic I paired it with my favorite pairs of black skinny jeans. One of my favorite places to buy skinny jeans is Old Navy. They are already at a great price point but they are also usually on sale and they  even have coupons!

For some added warmth, I threw on one of my favorite cardigans. It is also from Old Navy and it is literally perfect. It is is oversized, has the cutest details and is a great, neutral color. I have had it forever but I will link something similar below. My shoes are fabulous and are from JustFab. They are leopard espadrilles with stud detail around the ankle. They are the reason that I decided to join. If you are not familiar, JustFab is a monthly shoe subscription. For just $39.99 a month, you can get a new pair of shoes or save your credit until something you like better comes along. They are constantly getting new styles and they also have handbags and clothes that you can choose to purchase instead of shoes. What I like best is that if new shoes are just not in your budget that month, you can choose to skip the month and will not be charged! Just don’t forget to skip! I have gotten some seriously cute shoes at a great price so you should definitely consider checking them out!

I kept the rest of my accessories simple so that the bold color of my dress remained the star. I went with a basic cognac colored clutch, a fun hat and some of my favorite Kendra Scott jewelry. I use to be one of those people that felt like I couldn’t wear hats but I really believe that it is about finding the right hat for you. I searched for months for the perfect hat to fit the shape of my head and lucked up with this brown beauty from Target. It perfectly fits with my boho style and matches with so much in my wardrobe. I can easily wear it year round so I really get a lot of use out of this piece. As I mentioned, my necklace and ring are from Kendra Scott. I absolutely love this brand and everything that Kendra does to give back. If you are lucky enough to have a Kendra Scott store in your area then you can be sure that they are constantly giving back to you community. I never feel bad when I make a purchase with them because I know that much of the profits are going to benefit something great.

Remember that many of the pieces in your closet are versatile year round as long as you know how to layer them. Play with different layers or add a knot, just learn what works for you and the climate in which you live. Making your pieces more versatile is the key to simplifying your wardrobe. While I do love clothes, and probably shop way more than I should, I really try to think about the versatility of piece before I purchase. It needs to be able to be worn multiple ways, must work in multiple seasons and needs to be able to match multiple outfits. If I follow those rules when shopping, I know that I am getting something of quality for my wardrobe that will definitely be worn and be put to good use! Let me know if you have any questions or if you want to share your favorite way to layer. I always love to hear from you!
