Neutral Layers

 J Crew Leopard Shirt (old but this one is similar) // Corso Como Boots // 
Pearl Necklace - old & can't remember where I got it! 

As you know, I've been kind of obsessed with polka dots. A few months back, I got this cute polka dot clutch from J Crew and I have rarely used it. I was super excited to pull that bad boy out yesterday for a night on the town...ok, not really, we just went to dinner, but still!

Even though it's been warm during the day, it still gets chilly at night so layering is a must. I have had so much fun layering all my blouses this winter and have found that pieces I used to think were statement pieces are really great neutrals. Take my black and white leopard blouse for instance. I have worn it on it's own, with neons...



...and now with camel & mint. It's become a essential layering piece for me - I think it adds a bit of pop to any outfit. I also have noticed this with my blue and white gingham blouse. But that is for a another post - another time! :)

What are your key layering items?

  1. That first outfit is so cute! It makes me wish I had some mint skinnies so I could recreate the look. It is freezing here in Jersey so I've been wearing a lot of sweaters with a button down underneath.

  6. Love how you layered different patterns together and tied them together with neutrals.
