Doubling it Up


My love for fall layering is becoming quite problematic lately. You see, it's supposed to be a little bit cooler and less humid, but for some reason the summer winds have come again and I am stuck with a closet full of fall/winter stuff while it's 85 degrees out. I knew that would happen as soon as I packed away all my summer clothes!



But I figured, "What the hay!" and decided to layer anyways. This time I'm layering my denim dress under the polka dot dress for a more fall appropriate look, and then mixing in some brown accessories. I figured if I'm going to layer two dresses in the hot heat, why not include a little brown/black mix too?! I'm such a rebel. Ok, so I guess now a days it's not all that rebellious to mix brown and black. I mean, it's not like I'm mixing stripes with plaid! Now that is revolutionary! I may need to find a plaid skirt or something to try it out.

  1. love the layering you did here! all your brown accessories are perfect! i need shoes like that! ah! i'm so glad to see that you're working the dress i gave you into your wardrobe :)

  2. great outfit...I have started to love layering now that the cooler weather is finally here...
    Love the ruffles under the striped dress!

  3. I love this look!! The ruffles peeking out - so cute!

  4. Awe, polka dots and ruffles: what an adorable mix! I can't believe that it's 85 degrees where you live. I would kill to be in your shoes right now!

  5. I love it! Layers seems very currant as well. I'm not normally a layer-er-er, lol, but it's been feeling right lately to pile things on: dress over dress, jacket under cape.

    So you rocking polka-denim gets some high scores from this non-judges table. Pooch wins you the blue ribbon.

    We finally got cooler weather here, NOVEMBER, so all my planned "indian summer" outfits thrown out the door, time to head straight into chillsville.

  6. A. I love the layered look here. The ruffles look like they were made to peak out. B. Can I just say that I love when I see bloggers do swaps. Fantastic!

    The Auspicious Life

    P.S. I'm totally jealous that Tieka reads and comments on your blog - she is a rockstar, which makes you one by association, if you weren't one already!

  7. This look is a total sweetheart! Loving the dotted dress and belt.

  8. mmmmm, the polka dots and brown are perfect. Love this outfit.
