Layering Checks My Way

Monday, October 29, 2018


My friend Andrina and I were looking for an ideal, dry leaves covered, Fall shooting location for this look, which in warm climate Barcelona is not an easy task to find. I am not sure if this is because they clean the streets to fast or because Fall is simply that much milder but we finally settled for a pretty park near Barcelona Sants train station with interesting buildings, stairs, sculptures, and colorful pastel walls.

FALL LAYERING.

Fall for me it's all about layering. This season's ultra-popular check print served as an inspiration and a key piece to my Fall #ootd look. As a person who is always cold, I tend to always wear one layer more then what is needed for the temperature.



My idea for this look is to transition from Summer to Fall by layering my L'Agence checkered Summer maxi dress with black skinny jeans, thin military parka jacket from H&M, Intropia suede black leather booties and some designer Western accessories.


Layering allows you to adjust your look to weather morning to evening as Fall temperatures drastically change depending on part of the day and it gives you very well put together an interesting look as more colors and patterns pop out of each layer of clothing.

HERITAGE CHECKS.

Checks are super popular this season especially when it comes to blazers. Checkered blazers have replaced the perennial denim jacket as a transitional jacket piece from Fall to Winter and they are worn over hoodies and with sneakers equally as over sharp button-up shirts and pencil skirts for a more sharp business look.


70's western cowgirl look is also making a comeback especially in accessory: western boots, belts, and hats. Thus I have decided to combine the two for this #ootd just because I am not the type of person to wear the current trend (as on a store mannequin) head to toe as it makes it a bit predictable and not personal enough for me.


WESTERN ACCESSORIES.

The small accessory touches make a huge difference! I feel the best when I accessorize with vintage or unique accessory pieces made just for me or that carry a special, personal memory. This makes a big difference in my mood and confidence when I wear a certain outfit.




I accessorized this look with wide leather Ralph Lauren belt with lion crest and custom military green wool hat made for me in Barcelona by a young millinery designer I met in Palo Alto market.
