Spring Style 2012 – Layers


More Spring Style 2012 from me today. This time with the mandatory layers. You never really know what the day’s weather will be and working inside all day often means dealing with temperature controlled by someone else so the best way to be prepared is to wear layers.

Spring Style – Layers: This look started with the printed jersey dress, from Target, underneath. It is sleeveless which would make it too cold to wear on its own so I have added my thrift shop Lisa Ho black cardigan and some black leggings I have had for-ev-a. One of my purple jade bangles and a vintage purple tear-drop necklace bring out the colour and keep it from getting too gloomy. You may remember this bag from my Lust-Have Haul. I definitely am getting my cost-per-wear done on this versatile bag!

The Shoes: I adore these shoes from Kurt Geiger. You may recall my lust have list included metal capped toe pumps thanks to my hardcore crush on the Louis Vuitton shoes shown earlier in the year and that I had set about searching for a less expensive suitable alternative. Not only are they perfect because of the metal capped toe, but the white will be clean and fresh for Spring and the metallic stiletto heel is FIERCE! Plus they remind me a little of the first pair of leather pumps I bought when I was 16. They were white and I wore those things to death!
