Honestly, I think Winter looks are more fun to post anyhow since the layers and textures are more interesting to boot! I don't love the chill but I do love me some collared-shirts-under-cardigans and a warm cup of hot cocoa. In rebelling against the Winter gloom, here is how I do bright Winter layers.
Target flannel shirt (similar here / here)
Ann Taylor Factory ruffled top (similar here / here / here)
Ann Taylor LOFT cardigan (similar here / here)
Frankie B Jeans (similar here / 7FAMK here / Paige petites)
Accessories from Hautelook, Ebay, and gifts from friends
(more statement rings I love Pamela Love / Erica Anenberg twosome ring (I own this & love it) / YSL Arty)
One thing I love to do with layers is to wear something in a way that I never have before, like this ruffled top. I wanted to do some sort of additional layer with my flannel shirt but I got bored of wearing my tank under the collared top all the time and thought I'd try switching it up. Layering it like a vest allows the ruffles to be really vibrant and adds a contrast of texture.
I love to really layer accessories as well, especially delicate necklaces which I've been doing since junior high. Since I'm petite, big chunky jewelry can overwhelm me at times so I like to add 2 or 3 thin-chained necklaces that are different lengths to add interest to the neckline.
I never used to be a bracelet person since I can never find bangles that will fit my thin wrists, but I lucked out with a Hautelook sale for Isharya jewelry which comes in size XS which I believe have a diameter of 2.3". They were pricey even at a steep discount but I was very happy with the quality in person and will definitely splurge on them again at the next sale! (If you don't already have a Hautelook invite and would like to join you can use my code here but you can also sign up on the site if you want as well.)
As for the big silver artichoke ring here, it is a newly acquired purchase from eBay which I was so, so excited about! I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, but I actually collect sterling silver and vintage gemstone rings and this is one of my most prized acquisitions. The ring is signed Napier and is a size 3.5 which fits my ring finger perfectly! I often pile on tons of rings all at once like a magpie (oooh, shiny distractions on my hands) but this baby deserves to have more of a spotlight. :)
This close-up photo is one I took on Instagram and posted on my Twitter. The nail polish is my mother-in-law's in Sally Hansen Slick Slate which is super classy and perfect for Fall/Winter.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
I will be doing another post/video on Revlon's Lip Butters lipstick very soon (maybe layer today?) which will go more in-depth with the lipstick I'm wearing in this post so check back again later! Just a little hint: I absolutely love this lipstick. ;)
