Light Layers

When you’re yearning for spring, but Mother Nature isn’t exactly cooperating, layers are essential!

Can we talk about this sweater from Gap?! You should probably go buy* it right now. I am OBSESSED. It’s cotton so it’s not itchy at all. It’s the perfect length. Plus, it’s easy to layer now and will look cute on its own later on. I have it both colors, obviously. #oops

*beware: runs a bit oversized!

Lips: Lancome ‘Midnight Rose’ <– Just bought this and I LOVE IT. Perfect fuchsia shade!

    Kind of obsessing over your burgundy coat. Pretty outerwear is the other thing that makes this weather bearable!

    Obsessed with that phone case photo — great shoot! And instead of buying that sweater I’m probably just going to temporarily steal it from you. x

    This is really cute! I have a very similar sweater so you gave me a good idea to layer a collared shirt underneath.

    I bought a sweater just like this from Gap last year around summertime and I love it! Thanks for reminding me I need to pull it out and layer it over a shirt like this 🙂

    I love this outfit! I actually almost bought this sweater this weekend, but decided against it for the moment, but now I’m rethinking this decision…it looks so good! And you’re right, it does run a bit big. Great for layering over chambray, though.

    That sweater didn’t stand out to me when I saw it on the website, but after seeing it on you I really think I need it! I also love your elephant necklace!

    Only sad thing about winter leaving …seeing your beautiful oxblood Tahari coat say goodbye for the season. I especially love the collar! Your makeup has been looking particularly beautiful lately…clean & bright & as if you just had a facial!
    You wear the bright lipstick well! Never looks too bright ala Gwen Stafani….she needs to take cue from you! 😉

    Such a sweet sweater, Jessica! No wonder you love it, and I really like how you layered it with the chambray. The open weave makes me think its only for summer, but how you styled it shows how well it can also be worn in colder weather. Thanks for the inspo 😀
