Here we are, cruising through the week already! Here I am dressing up and taking photos in front of another farm gate. Not ashamed!

I wanted to snap some pictures of this frock before the weather turned. This is also gives us another opportunity to talk about layering. What more is there to say? Ladies and gentlemen, LAYER!

Well, there is more to say. Layering is the stylists’ joy in the shoulder seasons. Why? Because it gives you TWO amazing opportunities. First, it gives you the opportunity to style up the perfect mix, the perfect mash-up, the perfect jive.

Second, it gives you the chance to play with your wardrobe in ways you may not have imagined when it was 90 degrees and sweltering outside, or -30 and close to frost bite!

Fall is that golden moment when you can go to your closet, pick out some of your favorites from opposite seasonal leanings– say a black leather jacket, and the perfect striped dress, and your go-to blush heels– and sha-ZAM! throw them together faster than lightning and head out the door for a date with your man in a snap!

Try it out. Go to your closet. Choose two pieces from seemingly differing seasons. Pick a chunky sweater, a floral or summery shirt, and your favorite ripped skinnies. But instead of wearing the sweater OVER the shirt like you would in frigid winter, tie it around your waist for some added outfit depth. It’s that easy!

Make it a good one, friends!

XX, Megan
