Autumn Layers | Earth Tones and Leopard

Happy Monday!

Fall is the best time for layers. It's getting cooler every week here in San Jose, but it's still warm enough to wear dresses without tights. I wore this dress to my friend's wedding a couple of months ago when the weather was much warmer. I'm trying to create more looks with this dress, and I was inspired by this picture to pair the dress with a basic button-up shirt for something to wear to work.    

The leopard-print belt and shoes give a very nice touch of accent without being too overwhelming. I find a little bit of print mixed with solid is a yes, yes, yes. 

I adore this sleeveless trench from Ann Taylor and am convinced that it's one of my best find ever. I can pair it with almost everything in my wardrobe, and it instantly boosts an outfit. It's advertised as a trench dress, but I've been wearing it as long vest instead. The material is a uncomfortably stiff for hours of sitting down at the office. 

Thank you so much for reading!
