Layered Reflections

- Outfits

refection4

Layers, layers, layers. I haven’t ever been that great at layering, even though I attempt it a lot. This outfit somehow just seemed to work, even though when I first put it together without trying it on I thought it might look bulky! That’s the thing that’s hard for me, I can make a lot of layers look great off, but when it comes to putting all the layers on it doesn’t always look right. I guess that’s why I have to keep experimenting! Thanks to some amazing inspiration from fellow bloggers, I am getting a little bit better at it. I wore this outfit on Friday for casual Friday and added a pair of mirrored sunnies. Made me feel a bit more BA 😉

    Ahhh! I have the same issue with layers! I come up with (what I think are) awesome ideas and when I actually put it on I find out that it doesn’t look as perfect as I expected. Trial & error! Glad I’m not the only one. :)
