In the midst of midterms, I find myself styling outfits better than regular days when I am not under the stress and pressure. Weird, right? I sure think so. However, when I think about it, it makes sense. Fashion and style is an outlet for me. In the times of major studying and stress, I find fashion as a release. I online shop more to relax, and put together more outfit combos in much shorter periods of time! Maybe I should take midterms more often… Not!
One of the outfits I magically put together in little time at all is this adorable sweater and blouse overlay. I’ve been dying to try this out for a while! I am wearing a cream, wool sweater with button shoulder detailing. I then layered a citrus green sleeveless blouse with ruffle collar and bow tie in the front. When layering, I made sure to pull the entire collar out for exposure and adjusted the bow to sit just right on the front, since it’s a crew neck sweater not a V-neck sweater. I paired this with my favorite dark, stretch jeggings and a pair of my new camel suede booties. To add a little sparkle, I wore an adorable jeweled headband and finished the entire look with a quilted, two-toned leather tote with a chain handle.
I absolutely adore this outfit! Layering is a perfect way to change up how you wear an item. Many people wouldn’t think to layer a blouse of such a prominent color and collar with such a simple, basic sweater. It’s an outfit you can wear out everyday or even to work! Just remember, as long as you feel confident, then that is all that matters!
