Spring Layers

Hey There Daarrrrlings, I hope your week is going good! Mine has been pretty stressful, that stuff with Duke last week was pretty rough for me but he's tough as nails (like me!) and is feeling better already. Luckily it's hump day, and the week is downhill to the weekend from here, which is exciting because it's my brothers grad!! I am a super proud big sister.
I love layering but find it so much harder in the summer than winter for the obvious reasons of overheating. I can overheat easily and am an incredibly grumpy person when I'm uncomfortable, so I have to find different ways to layer. This vest has quickly become the perfect thing to let me layer in the heat without overheating! I found this vintage skirt last winter and fell in love with the pattern and pleating on it. I had to get it hemmed but now it's a great length and is a perfectly funky pattern for spring/summer

    jenna i love this vintage skirt find. so cute.
    I always find if you can't layer on the clothes during the summer cause of the heat layer on the accessories! congrats to your baby brother!

  2. Adoring all your jewelry. As usual. Seriously you have the best items! And like Hattie said, for summer, I tend to layer on the accessories. But I like the light layering you did here too.

    Congrats to your brother.

    1. Layering accessories is definitely helpful to make summer looks a bit more interesting

  3. Aw, congrats to your brother! Must be a great feeling.

    But I looove this skirt. Perfect coloooors. That blue ring is also so so cute. I want it!

  4. the print on the skirt is so fun!

  5. That skirt is so cute and your manicure is so bright and pretty. I'm with you, I get all agitated when I'm hot. Thankfully, I'm almost always cold :)

    1. My feet are allllways cold, it's so annoying!

  6. I love that skirt! What a great find! Hope your pup is feeling better :)

  7. I love the pattern of that skirt! Looks great with the vest! Yay I'm rooting for Duke!

  8. I couldn't help but smile when I read the words summer and layers together. If I'm hot and uncomfortable, I'm completely miserable {and definitely not pleasant to be around!} so layers go completely out the window for me when summer comes :) I love this take on summer layering, though, that vest is the perfect piece!

    1. Yeah I usually shed all layers in the summer, when it's hotter I will. But it's fun to layer!!

  9. I'm so glad to hear that Duke's feeling better!! I was worried about the little guy!
    That vest is SO cute for summer layering! I'm usually always cold so I find it hard not to layer lol. Congrats to your brother on graduating!

  10. That skull ring is just so cool. I wish I had one like it. You really always have the best accessories! I really really love the cool print on your skirt too. It seems so summery and fun!

  11. You always have the best accessories - agreed with Jamie. That print is awesome - you also have amazing prints.

    Layering is so important in the heat - I've been toting sweaters and scarves around like crazy because people have the AC on SO high it's almost not tolerable in places.


Thank you for the love!
