Inspiration is everywhere. I saw a great outfit at Banana Republic on a mannequin with a nice short sleeve ivory sheer blouse over a long sleeve denim shirt. They even accessorized the look with a great stack of statement necklaces. I have been obsessing over this looks since I saw it a few days ago. But it is way too hot to wear layers right now.
This outfit got me thinking about how many ways I can layer a denim shirt. I cannot wait for Fall now. I can wait for the school work and the assignments, but I can’t wait for fall fashion and boots! Boots, boots, and more boots. I love my boots. Can you tell?
For this first outfit, I layered my denim shirt under a classic striped dress. How much do you think I paid for this dress? You will never believe it! I thrifted this dress for a dollar! Yes, one dollar. Anyway, the denim shirt under the striped dress is a little plain, so I added a nice statement necklace. I got this statement necklace for about six dollars on Ebay. (If you can’t already tell, this girl is a bargain hunter!)
To add a little more dazzle, I paired this outfit with my sparkly chevron printed tights. And finished off the outfit with my Dolce Vita Girties. I love the height these shoes give me! Plus, they are surprisingly easy to walk in.
In this second outfit, I layered my denim shirt under a nice ivory sheer blouse. I kept the statement necklace from the previous outfit on and put a pair of dark skinny jeans. All these pieces are basic pieces that are great investments in your closet. You’ll get a lot of wear out of all of these pieces! I paired this outfit with a great pair of mary-jane heels. This outfit is totally work appropriate and its a good change from the usual blazer and blouse combo.
For my last outfit, I wore my denim shirt under this beautifully structured peplum top. I love the blue collar contrasting with the clean white top. I wore my dark skinny jeans with this combo, but you can easily swap the jeans for a pair of great fitting trousers!
