casual layers

Happy Monday, everyone! The weather didn’t treat us too well here in Hampton Roads, hence I spent lots of time wrapped in my cozy blanket. This layered outfit was perfect for getting out of the house, though.

Every item in this look comes form a gem, tucked away in the Virginia Beach ViBe District, French Twist Boutique. The owner, Annie goes back to France on a regular basis and hand picks French designed items for her store. Walking into French Twist feels like stepping inside of Europe. It is an island of chic and classic pieces with quality fabrics and an eye catching decor. The real twist is the fact, that French Twist is the home of local, Hampton Roads artisans. You will find new paintings on the walls every time you visit and all the accessories and jewelry are handmade by local artists. You cannot not love the concept.

This cropped pullover comes in different colors and it has a thick and luxurious fabric. It is roomy, so it is perfect for layering or you can just style it off-the shoulder by itself. The tunic I layered underneath has an exceptionally soft and delicate fabric; classic design with a feminine lace hem. Wearing this scarf reminded me of how much I used to love scarves and how much they can add to an outfit. You can find an incredible variety of scarves at French Twist that go with mostly anything.

If you are a Hampton Roads local, be sure to visit this lovely gem in Virginia Beach or in Williamsburg. It’s a trip worthwhile and you’ll leave the store with a quality item that you can wear for many seasons.
