As half my wardrobe is still across town, and the majority of my shoes are in boxes, my outfits haven't been the greatest as of late. (But, we're almost moved in so -- along with holiday preparations and balancing work -- it's been a productive week!)
However, yesterday we took a short break from move-in madness to attend a family gathering for this little guy's second birthday as well as his dad's more than second.
I mean, when someone invites you to be anywhere near that adorable face (not to mention Veggie Tales cake), you don't turn them down.
So, to make myself presentable for Ryan's family (and a cheeky outfit shoot just before), I decided to layer, layer, layer and see how it went. It ended up being a pretty cute outfit don't you think? Neutral layers are such a good emergency standby; I don't know what I'd do without them.
Straight-leg jeans - Gap
Leather boots - Journey's
Vintage silk and lace camisole - Valley Thrift
Ruffled cardigan - New York and Co. (Christmas gift from my sister-in-law a while back)
Vintage blazer - thrifted
Vintage bag - Chanel

Before we saw family, though, we took a moment to have Sunday brunch (walking distance now!) just the two of us, which was very restorative . . . not to mention delicious.
