Spring Jacquard

It can be tricky to navigate the sporadic spring weather - there's random blustery days, unexpected drops in temperature and sudden rain showers (or snow, if you live in NY!).  One of my favorite ways to get the most out of my closet during this time of year is to do some light layering with shells.  It may not yet be warm enough to wear these short-sleeve tops on their own, but I can extend my wardrobe further by pairing them with button-down shirts & blouses.  

You can make this office appropriate by styling with cropped trousers or a pencil skirt and dress it down with more casual pieces & denim for the weekend.  (Styling tip: this works best with button-down shirts/blouses made from thin materials like cotton or silk and with shell tops that have a bit of weight and/or structure to them.)  Take a look at some additional examples below & let me know if you give it a try!
