The nature of spring is to be full of surprises. Especially around here in Virginia. We can easily have 30 degrees one day with gusts in the morning and by the time 4PM comes around, you’re sweating in 72 degrees. Some might find this annoying, but I think it’s a great time to play with layers. This is my take on spring – the layering act! I basically doubled up on everything. I layered two shirts, one that adds a little pop to the whole look and creates a bit of a contrast with the striped blazer and one that fits well with the jeans. I have three layers on top, plus a tee, so I wanted to make sure to choose fabrics that have substance but don’t make me look bulky. The last thing you want is looking like a stuffed pigeon.

    I’m loving everything about this post, beautiful! First off, this look is so unique, even though you’ve incorporated such a classic combo, denim on denim, you’ve certainly made it your own with the rest of the pieces and layering. Now, the second photo is awesome and so fun! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

    XO,

    I love layering! It’s such a necessary style in the south because of our fickle weather. That striped jacket is adorable!

    I like how you layered the denim under the blazer. I know what you mean about crazy weather – the temp swings and wind gusts are crazy this time of year.
