That Layered Look

I’m always a fan of the layered look! Shirts, sweaters, blazers, jackets, scarves, you name it. Come fall, I’m ready to pile them on. It’s actually gotten pretty chilly in Paris… This morning it was in the low 40’s when I left my apartment! For early fall, however, when it’s not all that cold, but you still want to have that layered look… Meet the one-piece shirt and sweater combo!

I get a lot of questions about layering without the bulk… How to wear certain shirts and sweaters without feeling claustrophobic or making yourself seem larger? It can be tough and it definitely takes the right pieces to make it happen. But the one-piece top that looks like two makes it so, so easy!

I’m so bummed this layered-looking sweater just sold out online! It makes layering absolutely effortless. I found a few similar styles at Nordstrom though, where you can get the layers in just one piece…

Also! I get so many comments about these black square sunglasses anytime I’m wearing them on Snapchat. They’re Valentino, I got them last spring when I was in Paris. Nordstrom carried them, too, but ended up selling out. Luckily, there are a ton of other black square-frame glasses on the site right now… At all price points, too! Here are my favorites…

    Those jeans are perfection! Love this look, wish I could pull off the sweater over a button down look but I am way too broad for that.
