Daily Look: Dressing in Layers

Dress, Rings: Madewell // Shirt: The Limited // Bag: Old Navy // Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita via Nordstrom // Bracelets: Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Madewell // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Earrings: Target // Nails: UO Bandeau // Toes: Mary Kay Radiant Red // Lips: MAC Rebel

As much as I love the look of a great layered outfit, it can sometimes make me feel like a stuffed sausage, and I'll end up spending all day tugging at a shirt to get it to lay flat underneath a sweater. That, coupled with the fact that it's still way too hot here for most of the cute fall outfits I've been seeing lately, means it's sometimes impractical to dress in layers. But this sleeveless button-down from The Limited (a Christmas gift from Sam last year) is quickly becoming my favorite layering piece because it's thin and sleeveless. I wore this outfit to work on Monday and never had to worry about the blouse underneath my dress riding up or making me uncomfortable, which is great for me, because as much as I love clothes, I'm completely unwilling to sacrifice comfort for style.

What's your stance on layering?
