Layer up week Fashion Challenge: Short sleeve over long sleeve
Today is day 1 of the Layer up week challenge which proposes different ways to layer clothing and be re-inspired by pieces in our wardrobe. This is a good challenge for winter in Canada since layers are the best way to keep warm.
I think this turned out rather well.
T-shirt: Joe Fresh
Long sleeve shirt: Club Monaco
Skirt (really a cape): Smoking Lily (bought in Vancouver)
Shoes: Miz Mooz via Beyondtherack.com
Necklace: belonged to my grandmother
I might have picked different shoes but these were the first pair I saw of a blueish hue.
This skirt is actually a cape from Smoking Lily. It's wool so it's extra wam and it's lined with a satiny fabric so seeing the inside of the longer piece adds a pop of contrast.
There's a keyhole in the back of this t-shirt so the colour of the long sleeved shirt shows not only in the sleeves but also a little bit at the neck.
Though I probably would have picked a different pair of shoes if I'd had more time to pull this together, ultimately it ended up being a good day to wear flats. I spent a lot of time running around between my office and our other office located 4 floors above our main space. I was in a lot of meetings and didn't get much actual work done. Here's hoping tomorrow is more productive.
