Yay, yay, yay! First outfit from this recent trip to London… finally! I wore this outfit on one of the warmer days that I was popping around town… A coffee meeting at Dean Street Townhouse, shopping at Liberty London, Topshop, and Primark, and afternoon tea at The Berkeley. Best day ever, perhaps?! (So much more to come on all of that, though! I’ll be doing a few lengthy posts and a giant travel guide.) I took an outfit selfie on Snapchat in the dressing room at Topshop and you guys seemed to love this outfit! I couldn’t have loved it more, either… It’s a good mix of being trendy, but still wearable. And it was so comfy! Can’t beat a sneakers day. (That’s basically everyday for me lately in Paris. When you’re walking, like, 10+ miles a day, it’s a must.) But back to London and this outfit…
Blush pink and olive green has been my JAM lately. (This outfit and this outfit come to mind…) They’re two of my favorite colors on their own, but as of late, I can’t stop pairing them together, too. It’s almost like a fall take on the iconic pink and green combo from the Beverly Hills Hotel!
I’ve mentioned this trend in a few other posts lately, but the sheer mockneck top is such a thing right now. It makes for the most versatile layering piece! I wasn’t planning on taking my jacket off since it was kind of chilly, so I just wore a nude-colored bra under my top. You can kind of tell, you can kind of not. Sheer doesn’t really bother me lately, since it’s been “in” for at least the last year or so. I know a lot of you don’t feel the same.. Earlier this summer, I remember a comment from a girl who tried on the same tank top I was wearing and it was too sheer for her when the thought never even crossed my mind! Different stroke for different folks, you know?
Wearing a nude cami under these types of shirts is totally fine, too! Even a cami that’s the same color as your shirt! Better yet, a bodysuit. I have a different sheer lace top (as seen in this Instagram, blog post to come!) that I wore in New York with a just a bra underneath. However, since it’s much chillier now in Europe, I wore it the other day with my black body suit layered underneath instead! I can’t recommend bodysuits enough, even if it’s just in place of a cami. They stay in place so much better!
Here are a few that are great for layering if you need to get one for yourself!
Most of these featured come in a ton of different colors, too!
Another random side note about bodysuits… I’ve had a few questions come through on how to layer tees under dresses. (The 90’s are back in a big way, haha.) It definitely takes the right dress and the right tee. I’ve found loose cami dresses work best and the tee has to be TIGHT. I bought a J.Crew tee in a size down that I would probably never wear on it’s own (I like tees a little loose), but it works for a layering piece. However, I was just thinking how a bodysuit would totally nix that problem! (This bodysuit tee, for example.) I’ve always been a big fan of wearing turtlenecks under my sleeveless dresses in the winter and my wheels are currently spinning on how I’ll be able to wear my long sleeve bodysuits underneath instead. YAS! Now, if only I could fine a turtleneck bodysuit… 😂
