Lovely Light Layers

I'm having a hard time concentrating on anything today, because all I can think about is where I'll be at approximately 7:07pm tonight. Along with my dad, Aaron and I will be at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City cheering on the Royals for Game 1 of the World Series!! I'd say look for me on TV, but I'll be way up in the stands, almost as far up as you can go. Despite the ridiculous prices (even for our far-away seats) Aaron and I decided that we had to go. Christmas in October anyone? 

On a non-baseball note, dressing in layers is one of the best things about fall. Today I have one of my favorite layers, this cargo vest. It's perfect for the kind of weather we've been having, adding just the right amount of warmth in the cool morning, but not adding too much bulk for the warm afternoon. I know soon enough it will be time to break out the heavy jackets and gloves, but for now I'm embracing the lighter side of layers. 

To me, fall and spring are the most fun, wardrobe-wise. What's your favorite season for getting dressed?

  5. A great neutral (and light) layer for Fall - and how much do I love those shoes? :)

  6. Layers are the best–that vest makes this outfit more exciting than it would be without it. I also love the pop of leopard. :) Have fun at the game! :)

  9. Thanks! Ah, these shoes, they're great. I bought them to replace another leopard pair I had that bit the dust, but these are even better than what they replaced!

  13. I'm with you on the fall layering - nice to be able to have a little interest to outfits but not have to be totally bundled up yet. If only it weren't so short lived...


    Have fun tonight! I'll root for the Royals for you - made easier around here by the fact that Peter always roots against the Giants for some reason :)

  14. What a great layered look and such adorable leo print shoes! Fall and spring are my fave times of year to dress--no weather "extremes" involved--for the most part. Enjoy the game!!! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  15. I love those shoes, they sound like they would be super comfy if they're dr. scholls! I love the look of puffer vests on other people but I don't think they look particularly flattering on me, I love how this vest still gives you some shape! I'll definitely be on the lookout for one this style now. I totally agree with you - the in-between seasons are my favourite for fashion!

  16. Love that vest!! I've seen those popping up a lot lately, it's such a versatile staple! And I'm always a fan of polka dots - such a cute look!

  18. fall is my fave for dressing up--love the layers and sweaters!

  19. So true--if only it were fall that lasted so long we'd start to get sick of it. I can't even imagine.


    And thanks for the rooting, despite what happened. We were bound to lose at least one (I was just hoping it wouldn't be the one I was at!).

  20. Thanks! I agree completely--I think I'd be happy if it were spring and fall all year round! (I think I live in the wrong place for that though!)

  21. Thanks Nadia! These shoes are really comfy, which is an added bonus :) I agree about puffer vests--they can be hard to style in a flattering way.

  22. Thanks Lauren! I've had this vest for a while, and I've definitely gotten more than my money's worth out of it--it goes with everything!! Thanks for stopping by!

  26. Well, it was memorable, and I'm glad I went. It was a little heartbreaking though. Hopefully we'll get the win tonight (and I'll be enjoying it from my warm living room!)
