Fall Layering ideas

Hey All,

It’s that time of year.  As the weather gets cooler you can still keep some styles but, update them by adding layers.

For example:

I posted this last year (Feb. 2016) when styling a dress over pants first started trending.














So let’s go with that and add:




A sweater, scarf, or both to update and change up this look.  How fun.



Note same mini dress and staying in the same color.  Add a scarf for flair and you have a new look.

A nice touch for cooler temps.

I saw something similar to this on a blog site:

It shows the same concept.


  • Add boots

  • Add a lightweight jacket

  • A cool hat!

See what else you can come up with!!

Until next time,


Summer 2 Fall

Hey Ya’ll…

It’s the end of summer. I know for some of us the weather is still very warm. That said, we can add pieces to summer styles to take them into Fall.

For example – Hooded sweatshirts. My new favorite!

Long or cropped in length it all works.

This lightweight navy hoodie from Old Navy  works well when the temps just begin to go down.

(on sale for $7.99)












So many different ways to wear one.  Layered over a shirt like this one I saw in a Nordstrom ad.

My Version:











(Hoodie from Mango $39.00)

(White button-down shirt)

This tunic length hoodie can be worn  by itself or over something.

A younger me would have worn this!!












But now I would pick one of these options.

  • Leggings

  • Skinny jeans

  • Skirt












(Hoodie – H&M $24.99)

Or even layered under a denim jacket for cooler temperature times when you still don’t yet need a coat.

There are so many options to try.

Go see what you can come up with.

I would love to hear your ideas.


Happy Shopping!



Funny how new trends come in and are identified in a certain way.

While trying to stay current and express new ideas, the fashion industry  likes to shake things up by introducing  “a new style.”

This “new” style is the Coatigan. By definition it’s the combination of a coat and a cardigan sweater. Great for this time of year.

This new trend can be lighter in weight so that layering can make the difference on how warm you want to be!

I went searching for some examples:



































They can be with or without buttons as shown above. I found these two at a Zara store.

 Both moderately priced. They look like a coat but are sweater material.

I found this checked one at Old Navy.


















All of the coats were under $80.00.  The one at old Navy was only $50.

I bought one from Nordstrom Rack. I love the color, very neutral.












So cute and only $39.99.

Version 2












You can find them anywhere with prices as high or low as you would like to go.

They are great for layering and in-between weather.
