Layering Green and Black

I work in an air conditioned office and temperature can be a major issue. Wearing versatile pieces allow you to be comfortable in the cooler office spaces and you can remove a layer when you are out for a quick lunch in the heat.

I've been slowly building up stand alone pieces like this great jacket from Ann Taylor or this sassy green skirt from Crew. You'll find these signature pieces are easy to swap in and out of any look. What are your signature pieces?

  1. That green pencil skirt is beyond adorable. Super classic, but the color really makes it stand out. Gotta love J Crew. And I love the printed top with it. Definitely keeping this combo in mind for future inspiration!


  2. Such a pretty color in that skirt! I'm use to see pencil skirts in neutrals or the classic black, but this color is quite interesting and I can imagine pairing it with so many things and creating fun outfits out of it! Love how you paired with polka dots and the timeless black blazer!


  3. LOVE this pencil skirt! The color is very fun and very fall! I'm in the ac during the day, too...always gotta remember a cute cover like this blazer!
