| coat & top (layered): Old Navy | necklace: gift from Andrea | dress: H&M | tights & booties: Target | watch: c/o JORD |


I've got my new room/closet mostly sorted, so I need to stop thinking that I have "styler's block"; do you know what I mean or is that totally ridiculous sounding? 

This is nothing ground-breaking, but I've found the easiest way to look and feel like you put some thought into your outfit is ~layering~. The top I'm wearing here is actually this trapeze top; it fit perfectly under this new-ish dress I picked up at H&M recently for pretty cheap; and I also loved what the "textured" look of the top added to the outfit. 

And purple tights! I'll know I've made it in life when I have tights that are every color of the rainbow. These are dark enough to almost look like a neutral, but surprise, they're actually the best color. 

This necklace was a present from my friend Andrea (last Christmas? my birthday?) I will never tire of statement necklaces and costume jewelry in general. What's not to love about giant faux gemstones? (*Gemstone anecdote* in the car this weekend, Hunter asked me, "What's one random hobby or topic that you'd like to learn more about?" And I said "Gemstones?" I'm not entirely sure where that came from...but the more I think about it, I DO want to randomly learn about gemology.)

And a couple quick pics from my weekend in Asheville:

We drank a lot of craft beer, went on a hike that was double what we intended, made two brand-new genuine friends, actually enjoyed some vegetarian food, listened to a lot of 80's music in the car;

and we'll definitely be back.

Hope your week is off to an awesome start! Thanks for reading.

You look so so SO chic!! I love the layers and the shift dress and the purple tights! Everything is so cute! Layers definitely help me feel more dressed up!

This dress is so pretty! And I really love the purple tights. I've actually gotten rid of all my colorful tights, because I started to feel weird in them, but I could definitely get behind a dark purple option!

Love this outfit! I think I have the same pair of purple tights, I definitely agree that they can be counted as a neutral! I'm so glad you loved Asheville!! Asheville is one of my favorite cities and I can't wait to go back again to enjoy the beer scene now that I am 21.

Ok, your new photographer friend is incredible! You look like a model in these pictures! I've still never tried layering a top under a dress. You've done it so well here, I actually thought the sleeves were part of your dress!
