Same day outfit photo! I don’t think I’ve ever been that on top of outfit photos. Ever.
Okay, I just decided I still looked halfway okay after work today, so I snapped a couple shots before the sun went down.

I’ve always loved the layered blouse and sweater look, but I’ve butchered it every single time I’ve tried it. The undershirts were always too stiff, not fitted enough, you name it. The sweaters were likewise too loose, and often times too bulky.
I feel like this is the closest I’ve gotten to successfully pulling it off. It’s a thin knit over a thin sleeveless silk shell. No sleeves to bunch up, and no buttons to detract from the smooth knit. There’s no collar, but the crew neck was large enough to let a little peak of the neckline through. I’m a fan.
It’s been cold, drizzly and occasionally sleeting for the last few days. I’ve started reaching for my scarves to add a temporary layer in the mornings and late afternoons at the office. It works for the time being.
Do you have any layering tips and tricks you use?
