Happy First Day of Winter everyone! I cannot believe we are approaching the holidays and new year already. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel like the older I get the faster time goes by. I hope everyone is staying warm during the holiday season! It actually has felt more like winter the past few weeks here in North Carolina. We got over a foot of snow two weeks ago. Almost unheard of, especially early in December. I don’t know about you but I love staying cozy in the fall and winter. I think I’ve worn a sweater almost everyday since the temperatures dropped below 50 haha. I love the versatility of a sweater or cardigan and playing with layers. You can get really creative with your outfit, another reason why I love fall and winter! Loft has so many versatile pieces and I put together 2 different looks using the same sweater for you to stay cute and cozy in!

I love me a good cowl neck sweater and this one is OH SO GOOD. I love that it’s more snug, a little unusual for me as I prefer oversized sweaters. I honestly fell in love with the boucle texture. I’ve been wanting to add more texture especially with neutral tones to my closet. I have major “Joanna Gaines” feels in this look and I am not mad about it since I am a country girl at heart. Catch my Instagram stories for the accent.

I played with more textures for this look by mixing Loft’s wool pocket shift skirt and the same sweater. Again, I love neutrals. They’re what I feel most comfortable in and a way I’ve upped the bland look of them is adding pieces with that texture. This look can easily be worn to work, date night or to your family holiday gathering.

Honestly, one of my favorite things about Loft is the versatility of their clothing. I know I mentioned this earlier and you’re going to hear me say it again. When it comes to me investing in clothes, I love things that I can get the most out of. Luckily, my office just switched to a “Dress for Your Day” dress code which allows us to wear more casual clothes. But when I did have to dress business casual for work, Loft was my go-to for pieces that I could not only wear to the office but also wear everyday. It’s still one of my go-to stores when I’m looking to add new pieces to my closet! Plus the staff is always so helpful and friendly which makes the shopping experience even better for me. (Maybe not my wallet haha) I hope ya’ll enjoyed this post and I want to wish you all a Happy Holiday season!

XOXO,
Thuy

How To Style & Rock Layers!

Helloooo friends! Today’s blog post is a long time requested post. If you follow me on Instagram then you have seen me wear layers religiously! I am obsessed with playing around with the different textures, colors and patterns. You can get really creative with various pieces that you already have in your closet. I’m going to show you a few styles of layering with pieces that I love.

You don’t have to be a professional to style layers! You just have to have fun, that’s all! I will however, give you a few starter tips.

1. Start with a light piece such as a patterned button down or a blouse that has dimension.
2. Layer a sweater with texture or a thin, larger sweater.
3. Tie a knot in the front of the sweater to give it more dimension (if you want of course).

Again, you don’t need to be an expert. I love playing around and just having fun with it. That’s what fashion should be (there are no rules in my opinion). The great thing about styling with layers, is that your options are endless! You can swap tops and sweaters out to get different looks. This is great if you are traveling! It saves you A LOT of packing space. 😉

Here are 3 ways I styled layered pieces.

First look is a pattern button down (from ThredUp). I love the stripes on this top and love wearing it alone. The other day, I was picking out my outfit for work the next morning and thought, “this would be so cute under a sweater!”  This shirt has pattern and length to it so I paired it with a longer sweater and tied a knot in the side to give it more personality. I love the way the blouse comes out at the bottom!  stripe blouseLayering Sweaterknot tied sweater knot tied sweaterSecond look is a marled knit sweater that is a bit on the shorter side and a loose peplum blouse. (Both from H&M). This type of sweater is great to layer with! I have to admit, this one is my go-to with any layering outfit. (I might wear it too much). The flare from the blouse under the sweater is the perfect touch and I adore the color combo.  Peplum Blouse layer a sweater sweater layering sweater layering

Third look is an oversized sweater over a basic stripe button down! This is really simple. I’m sure many of you have a basic button down with stripes. (Especially if you work in any office setting). Both of these are from H&M too! Can you tell I’m obsessed with the retail store? LOL! So I really love this sweater because it has two deep slits on the side. This reveals the blouse that you’re wearing underneath, exposing the color and giving more dimension. I love this look because I felt very “artsy” I think I just need a cute pair of glasses!

There you have it! See, layering is super easy and SO MUCH FUN! It’s my favorite style during the fall and winter. I will link sweaters and tops at the bottom of this post if you are feeling spontaneous. These are easy to style, given the material and length. I hope you get inspired by this post and go straight to your closet to pick out your next layered outfit! Remember, there are no rules in fashion so have fun and release your creative side!

Sincerely,

-Thuy
