Outfit 1: I've quickly learned that very thin cardigans or zip-ups work amazingly well with layering. I usually pair a thin sweater with a crop top, or even a simple tank top. I really like this J.Crew cotton cardigan, especially because it has the word "featherweight" in it's name, a total giveaway of it's layering potential. I go for shorts to maintain the summer factor, then sandals to do the same too. A scarf is also a great addition for layering, because they can add color and pattern, and they don't have to weigh much to make a great point. Jewelry is usually an option, depending on how much I'm wearing, but I love the nautical necklace and earrings! Medium or big bags are definitely some of my favorites right now, and I love the chic look of the brown shoulder bag! It's only $51, and for it's look I think it's so worth it since it seems versatile.
Outfit 2: When I'm going for something a little more classic or plain, I like to wear a shirt but leave it unbuttoned and wear a tank top inside. On top of the shirt, I put on a light vest for another layer. I wanted to show an idea using a skirt, and this black skirt is definitely cute! I love the shoulder bag, especially because it's simple and it adds a nice pop of color in white to the outfit. I also thought the two claw bracelets were really cool, and they'd be an amazing conversation starter with anyone you speak to! There's just something about how unusual yet cool they are, which I couldn't quite let go off. And a comfortable pair of sneakers perfectly completes the look, and make it even cooler.
