Summer Layers

pants/loafers-Zara(more options here, similar shoes here) , shirt-H&M(similar here), top-Mikkat Market(similarish here) necklace/rings-Jewel Mint

I featured these layered shirts last time here, and with fall fashion hitting stores I'm starting to feel the sartorial itch of the approaching season. One of the great things about autumn outfits, for me is the chance to experiment with layering. Seen here, here, and here. But layering isn't only for the colder months. You can effectively implement layers in summer as I've done above. Sure, functionally speaking layering is about staying warm, but outfitting wise it can also be about adding interest, texture, and color to an overall look.  These two shirts together do exactly that! The lace of the navy top is mirrored in the overlay of the shirt's collar, which also brings in that great gold color to "glam up" the navy lace. PLUS, the sleeveless shirt provides some coverage (essential for the office) behind the sheer neckline of the top.  

Another note I want to make with this outfit are these great pants! Pull-on pants in effect, featured here at point of purchase. At 5 1/2 months pregs I'm still able to wear "regular" clothes thanks to the current athleisure trend and the proliferation of pull-on, drawstring, and elasticized waist pants. These trousers are a bit on the baggy side in the thigh and back end areas, but they do have some fun style elements in the cuffs and appear as standard work trousers.
