Some time back, awesome, fabulous, gorgeous blogger friend Lynne sent me an awesome, fabulous, gorgeous vintage pin:
I wore it with black and blue:
In what was, apparently, the most confusing outfit I’ve ever worn. As I was leaving the house, my sister said “That’s a cute… thing.” I asked her what thing she was talking about and she said my outfit. She said she didn’t know what it was, but she liked it. And, later in the day, I was trying to talk to my manager and he just kept staring at me until I asked him what the problem was. He said he just didn’t understand what he was looking at. I explained that it was three different pieces all layered together.
Specifically, I layered a turtleneck (Gap) under a cap-sleeve bow blouse (via Vintage by the Pound) and topped them both with a sleeveless wool dress (vintage Liberty House via Goodwill):
I also added leggings (Macys), a studded belt (JC Penney) and cuffed boots (Gap). Oh, and neon pink stud earrings (Kate Spade New York via Nordstrom):

Confusing or not, this was one of my all-time favorite outfits. I’ll be the first to admit that my attempts at layering don’t always work, but I think I frickin’ nailed this one.
Happy Monday, All!
