If you live in NC in the spring (or anywhere in the Southeast/Mid-Atlantic), you understand the necessity of dressing for 2-3 different seasons on any given day. When you wake up the temps could be in the 30s or 40s, and by the afternoon they’ve spiked up into the 80s. Add to it the wacky heating and air conditioning settings in any corporate office building – it’s enough to drive anyone crazy!! Some days I have on 3 layers + a scarf + a coat just to ensure I’m comfortable throughout the day as it changes.
I love dressing in layers because it’s almost like wearing a few different outfits throughout the day, but it can get a bit monotonous at times. A cute tank/blouse, an open sweater, and skinnies in all sorts of variations. You know the drill. I try to keep it interesting with a pop of color somewhere, some amazing shoes, or an eye-catching statement necklace! Here’s yesterday’s version, details underneath:
- Both the tank and the open-front sweater were TJMaxx finds. This store is a massive weakness for me, and I’m OK with that.
- The grey skinny jeans are Michael Kors – they are on super sale now (50%) for under $50, but going fast. The only color left is Palm Green, and if I were a size 6 (sigh), I would have already placed my order! Here’s a similar black pair at Lord & Taylor($79 sale), and some blue one’s on the Zappos site ($99).
- I LOVE my grey stone statement necklace from B B & Co. It literally goes with everything and is that perfect mix of chunky without being obnoxious. I stumbled across them a couple of weeks ago on Instagram and am now obsessed with almost every piece of jewelry on their page. They also sent an adorable pair of silver arrow earrings that will get so much wear. The best part – they’ve priced their items an at unbelievable pricepoint. The necklace here was under $30!!
- And these shoes. They are unreal, probably my favorite in my closet right now. They are from Vince Camuto and exclusively sold here at Nordstrom. These shoes are so comfortable, will work with outfits in all 4 seasons, and I’m really digging the wine color. They have 5 others colors in this same shoe and the Olive color is really interesting, too! Jeffrey Campbell also has a very similar design with a wedge heel for a few bucks more. I like them, too, but my personal opinion is that the Vince Camuto’s are bit more comfortable for all-day wear.Happy Friday!
