As you know, I’m one that just can’t leave well enough alone. There’s no satisfaction like a perfectly put together outfit, which is why I’m constantly rummaging around my closet and trying to come up with fun layering ideas to share with you. This past summer I’ve beaten my wardrobe into submission by pairing sleeveless dresses with collared tops, strapless dresses with longs-sleeve blouses, short sleeve dresses with long sleeved tops, and finagled vests into dress-like outfits. But even that can get same-old same-old when you do it all the time.
So what I did to mix things up was inverse the idea of layer-a-blouse-under-a-sleeveless-dress, and layered a sleeveless top on top of a sleeved dress (that’s a lot of “sleeves”, #tonguetwister). Since my Little Veggie Vintage dress had a bright, poppy pattern, I subdued it by taking a chambray top and tied it at the bottom to give it some proportion. And there we have it, a new layering idea was born! What do you think- would you try it?
