layer cake

Mondays are good days for lots o’ layers. They help disguise weekend indiscretions {like the aforementioned seven layer dip in the last post}. Mondays that happen to be Halloween are especially good days for layers. Because you’ve already eaten about five fun-size Butterfingers and a cupcake. An there’s still a lot of sugary debauchery to be had.

Here’s an easy no-bake recipe for a cute layered outfit:

Start with a dash of sparkle — sequins, beads, or a cute graphic tee.

Lightly cover with an easy button-up. (Don’t worry about ironing it, we’re going to cover it up anyway.)

Top with a slouchy vest. The slouchier the better.

Garnish with cherry red lips. And a sock bun.

  1. Love this look, your smile is amazing.
    Also important, the pockets in the vest for loading up on Halloween candy at your coworker’s desk!

    1. These are! I don’t know if they’d be ideal for 9-5, though. They fit like skinny jeans, and they’re pretty snug. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for good substitutes, though!

What do you think?
