Hello! This look involved lots of layering. I started off with a leopard print, sleeveless button up as a base. I love the way that the collar of the blouse stands out from under this vintage, feminine dress. I layered a creamy, knit sweater over the blouse and dress. This sweater sure has been a life-saver this fall/winter! It is perfect to slip on with almost any look for a little extra warmth and comfort.

It was slightly too chilly for bare legs so I grabbed a pair of knee-high socks to pair with my combat boots. These combat boots are most definitely my go-to pair of shoes. Hello, instant style!

I chose to accentuate the collar of my blouse by pinning on a small gold pin on the lapel. Recently, I've been obsessing over pins. They are such a chic, no-fuss way to add detail to any look. I also decided to load my wrist with an armful of gold bracelets and a gold watch. Layering on bracelets upon bracelets is the perfect way to spotlight your manicure.

Like usual, my look was finished up with a great pair of Giant Vintage Sunglasses. These particular sunglasses are particularly impressive. Like the sunglasses in my last post, I recently received these to style on my blog. I did not pick them out but whoever did certainly knows my style/ taste in sunglasses! These are the perfect sunglasses for me- I love the gold trim and classic, effortless feel that they give off.
