Layers for days

It's July 1st. I might need a moment to fully take that in, because I'm not really sure how a whole month has slipped by already, however in my defense, Mother Nature has been doing her best to make it feel as little like summer as possible.

I spent more of June in denim and sweaters than I feel I can remember. It was wet, chilly, and dreary. Okay, not everyday, but a lot of them! July needs to turn things around, and I won't be happy until everyone I know is complaining about how hot it is.

  1. I'll trade you weather! It's waaaayyyyy hot here! Like 115 degrees! I'm longing for chilly days! I'm totally going to have to copy this outfit but I won't be able to until November when it will finally be cool enough. lol.

  2. Yep, Mother Nature needs to step things up! But I don't want it TOO I don't know, ha ha...
    And I always love that jacket, is is the perfect fit, love how it nips in at the waist

  3. I can't believe it is July already either. You look so cute in your jacket, it fits you perfectly :)

  4. Love this look! So laid back and casual, yet oh-so chic. Perfect shoes too -xx


  5. I felt the same way. This morning at work I wrote 7/1/15 on a document and was all "whaaaaaaat?" LOL June started crappy here but man it has been at least 80 degrees for the better part of the month. Loving these layers you have here! And that necklace!

  6. Shoes and tote envy! The weather here in Cali has been quite hot so it totally feels like summer.

  7. Love this coat and the necklace is perfect with this outfit!

  8. OMG I love the shoes and the bag!

  9. Even though the weather may not have been cooperating, this outfit is still pretty perfect (it's just too bad it's not Fall as you wear it) - I'm crazy about those shoes!

  12. Right, how is it already July?! I love the utility jacket + printed shoes combo, definitely one of my favorite looks.

  13. This outfit is very beautifully put together I'm in love with your shoes the are super cute #LOVE!
    I blog about jewelry and how to style jewelry with outfits , tell me what you think.

  14. I adore the leopard heels and utility jacket!

  15. Oh, we had the same here in Ireland. No fun at all. Especially be ill in summer time with bad cold. I don't even remember when I have been ill in summer time. That just shows.
    Yet you always look wonderful and stylish no matter what weather your having. Love this relaxed and put together look. Just looking at your gorgeous leopard print shoes makes me even more to find asap pair for myself.

  16. Loving these layers! Your army jacket and leopard heels are the perfect combination.


  17. awesome outfit, loved the parker! :)

  18. The solution is simple - come to Vancouver! We're all suffering with a major heat wave here and, after complaining all winter about rain, complaining just as bitterly about how hot we are now. To be fair, I'm actually far more uncomfortable now than I was in winter. You can escape rain by coming inside, whereas the heat is everywhere. At the moment, I'm incredibly envious of the fact that you can comfortably wear anything other than the shortest shorts and dresses. But I understand how frustrating it must be for you, who spent a miserably cold winter dreaming of summer, only to have it come and find yourself still wearing a coat. It is a very cute coat, though!

  19. I know what you mean! I keep wondering where the heck shorts weather is! That jacket is the perfect light layer for this cooler weather though!

  20. Loving that jacket with the leopard heels. I can't believe its July 1st.

  21. I can't believe it has been that cool there!! It has been HOT here. Come to MS, you will get plenty of heat!


  22. I hear you. I cannot believe june is over and its 5 months until Christmas.

  23. Hope the weather turns around for you and that July is much sunnier and warm! I have to say though, I just love this entire look. You are just stunning!

  24. We always have really cool weather in June too except without the rain. This year, the day it was officially summer we got hot weather. It's been so humid, I have been in air conditioning all day long. Love this outfit on you!


    Would love to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  25. You looks amazing as always! Love those heels!

  30. It's actually been gone for two days for Alabama right now... and I love it. So give me all your dreary weather. Hopefully you'll get some of that sunshine in return, too. ANywho, however you're managing layers right now is unfathomable to me, but you look chic as heck. Loving that green jacket, Lydia!

  31. June was really wet and dreary here too for a lot of it--not very summer-like! I don't mind the cooler temperatures, but I'm tired of the rain. I love this look--the jacket is laid-back and casual but those heels add some glam. Love it!
