Layering Season

Even though I live in a place where it snows all winter long, I still subscribe to the belief that you can wear multiple layers without looking frumpy.  It's all about choosing classic pieces and balancing proportions.  This silk blouse/chunky sweater/blazer combination keeps me toasty warm and works equally well with skinny jeans, slim-cut trousers or a straight skirt & wool tights.

What I'm wearing:
J. Crew blouse (here), Old Navy sweater (on sale here), Banana Republic blazer, Style & Co. skinnies, BCBG booties (last seen here), Express bracelet, Michael Kors watch, RafÄ“ New York clutch (via eBay)

I'm guest posting today for my girl, Alysson, over at Simplicity is Ultimate Sophistication & talking about the top-handle bag trend + providing some affordable options!

Just found your blog through twitter! Love the outfit - adorable! I'm in sales and our dress code is very relaxed so this is a perfect picture of inspiration. Can't wait to browse through the rest of your blog.

I'm so bad at layering...I feel like I never put the right stuff together. This outfit works so well and I have similar pieces so maybe I'll give it another shot!

You look amazing :) I am not that great at layering, so it is always great to see new ways to do it!

P.S. Your clutch is also amazing!

I love this outfit and totally agree...I live in NYC and am constantly experimenting with different ways to layer in the winter without looking like a linebacker!! The combo you have here is perfect...and that leopard clutch is amazing. :)
