How to Wear Layers with a Dress

Moms Do Fall Fashion

When fall rolls around, the weather can be kinda tricky. The weather can go back and forth between being somewhat warm and downright chilly…And that’s where layers come into play. Being that I live in the sunshine state, I rock light layers well into November, so they’re a big part of my fall wardrobe. Now while it’s definitely still warm enough for bare legs, the temps have been dipping in the evening, so if I’m stepping out in a dress it’s probably a good idea to have an open cardigan on hand for quick and easy layering. And that’s just what I did for today’s Moms Do Fall Fashion look. And speaking of Moms Do Fall Fashion…Today we’ve partnered with the lovely Heather from My Life Well Loved. Make sure you head over to her site for more fall style inspiration after you get the details on my fall ready layered look! Ok, let’s talk about how to wear layers with a dress.

So, let’s talk about today’s fall outfit…Like with most of my fall looks, it’s all about comfort. I picked up this t-shirt dress last year at one of my favorite little boutiques, Treehouse on Main, in Clayton, Ga where our family’s vacation home is and I’ve been waiting to bring it out to play. Not only is cranberry one of my favorite fall colors, but things don’t get much comfier than a super soft and flowy cotton dress. Remember, for us busy mama’s cute and comfy is forever the vibe we’re going for. And the open cardigan I chose to wear with this dress is just as comfortable.

I kept things light and airy by selecting a lightweight cardigan, but the grey and cranberry hues made the look more than ready for fall. All I had to do to finish things off were to slip on my trusty Rag & Bone booties, African bead necklace and a new pair of sunnies that I can’t get enough of. I’ve been rockin’ the same dark Wayfarers and cat eyes forever, so it was time to switch things up a bit with this light colored pair. I’m not going to lie…Megan’s new Ray-Bans are calling my name too. Bwah! She’ll share her outfit details with you another day, I promise!
