Daily Threads: Layers




dress: UO {similar}, top: old navy, vest: jcpenney, shoes: c/o modcloth

Oh, hello! Remember me, Linley? I blog here. Yes, it's been a while, but I have a good excuse: I needed naps. That's right - I nap. I love napping; it's a favorite of mine. And studies show it's a healthy thing to do. So I nap instead of exercise. Makes sense to me. Anyway, today was the first day this week I didn't take a nap once I got home from work (I know, so unhealthy, I'm not perfect). I've been exhausted from last week. We celebrated our first year of marriage, as well as husband's birthday, mom has been visiting, then dad and brother came to visit, and I worked in-between it all! My parents left Sunday and I've needed the past few days to recover. Everyone recovers at their own pace, ok. 

Now that that's out of the way. I've been craving layers lately - thus, this outfit was born. Plus, I recently purchased this vest and this top and wanted to share them with y'all! Sure, it's 100-degrees here, but I ignored the weatherman and wore a long sleeve shirt and a vest, over a dress.

Napping is pretty much my favourite thing to do!

I totally love how you layered this. I always crave layers in the summer as well, but it's sooo hard when it's hot out!!

Napping after that busy week is perfectly acceptable. And this outfit is gorgeous! Love the color of the dress on you, especially.

I just paired it with jeans though. This is a great look! I love the layers. You look awesome! I have a similar dress and oxford shoes. I will have to try to recreate your look. :)

Oh and Happy Anniversary to you and your Hubs!

Cute outfit and I love naps too! I think American should designate 1 hour a day for everyone to take a nap. I think people would be a lot happier if they did!

I read this morning and totally meant to comment first thing.....and here I am now at almost 6pm. Anyways, I truly love this look. The layers, the colors, the VEST. Mark me down as saying this is all-time fav.

I've been craving layers lately, too. HURRY UP, Fall!! ;)

I get cranky when I don't have naptime-it's totally understandable. Even though I would burn up in those layers, I love the look-you can always peel off the layers and still look like a diva. Congrats on your first year of marital bliss:-)
