extreme layering.

Today I wore a skirt and a dress.  At the same time!
Not weird, right?  I like to think of it as EXTREME LAYERING.  It kind of makes it sound cooler, no? Plus, this is the closest I'll ever get to partaking in extreme anything. ;)

The dress that I layered my skirt over is too short and tight for work.  But, worn under a pencil skirt, it actually looks like a pretty cute shirt!  I took it a step further by layering on a vest and a belt.

JCrew corduroy pencil skirt worn over F21 striped dress, Banana Republic sweater vest, Etienne Aigner costa boots, H&M belt, NY&Co watch, modified Style by Tori Spelling necklace & bracelet via Jo-Ann Fabrics  

So, have you ever layered a skirt over a dress?  I'd love to hear how you styled it!

  1. Other than layering shorts and leggings for running, I typically don't do layering... Unless wearing a billion tops because I'm freezing counts ;)

    Anyway, that's such a cute outfit! I never would've known it was a dress and not a top. And you don't have to worry about whether or not your top will come untucked!

  5. I LOVE that sweater vest. It doesn't look like they have it any longer at Banana Republic. Any idea where I might find something similar! Just found your blog and I love it. You have a great sense of style.
