Not Posing Pose #26 “The Not Really Balancing Act”“Done in Deco” by O.P.I

I must say, this is one of my favorite outfit so far, it’s the perfect mix of form and function. It’s as comfortable as pajamas without making me look like I just rolled out of bed 15 minutes after I was suppose to be at work… not that that’s ever happened to me or anything.

I live in leggings year round and I was overjoyed that the weather this weekend was warm enough for  me to bust out my capris and go barefoot. D snapped these pictures in my parent’s backyard. When I was a kid the stump I’m standing on was a massive apple tree that we used to use as the home run line during epic summer whiffle ball games. Sadly it had to be cut down after one too many nor’easters left it’s limbs dead.

It’s no secret that I love to layer and I think this outfit is the perfect representation of some of my favorite layers. Extra long tank tops and tees are my go-to when it come to base layers. My (men’s) button up is from Goodwill and with an amazing price tag of only $2 it has become a staple in my wardrobe.

D bought me this vintage Jeffrey Allen cropped leather jacket for my birthday and I couldn’t be more in love (with both  D and the jacket)! The cropped cut of the jacket hits the smallest part of my waist perfectly helping to create shape and definition even with all my slouchy layers. Not only is this jacket a beautiful vintage piece but it’s slimming too!

Since I was working with all solid colors I decided to add interest to this look by layering two long necklaces together to create one statement necklace. I love how the gray from the leather jacket works with the silver and blue of the necklaces. Both of them were hand-me-downs from my amazing friend Jenna, she’s Dubs (from Dub’s Duds’). I’ve been envious of her accessories collection since we were in middle school so when she offered to let me pick though her jewelry box before her yard sale I couldn’t pass it up!

What are your favorite layering pieces? Who’s jewelry box would you love to raid?
