Summer time layering

Summer is always the trickiest season for me. Since it gets so hot outside, you’re somewhat limited to how you can put things together – you’re kind of just stuck with putting one piece or two pieces together.

Even though it’s hot out, that shouldn’t stop you from experimenting with layering. With this look specifically I took a tunic tank top and layered it over a high waisted pleated midi skirt. Rather than a belt, I used a colorful scarf to add contrast to the look. My favorite emerald flats finished off the look with that additional added pop of color.

All black texture + leopard

I love a great all black look. Typically when I style an outfit this way, I incorporate different materials and textures. In this case, I styled my go to LBD slip dress with my favorite leather jacket. A waist belt with zipper detail and leopard booties tied everything together.

Bright coat spring staple

I was on the lookout for a great winter to spring transition jacket/coat [you know, the kind that’s not too heavy, not too light]. I found this perfect shade of red beauty and had to have it! The jacket also has the perfect amount of arm room [super important for layering] so anytime it’s a little chillier outside a chunky sweater fits perfectly under it!

What’s your go-to transition jacket? Let me know in the comments below, because I’m still on the prowl for the perfect trench coat!
