Downtown Layers | An Outfit of the Day

Downtown Layers | An Outfit of the Day

It has been a while since I have posted an outfit of the day.  So to kick off my last day of high school, first day of summer, and first weekly #OOTD post, I decided to pick one of my favorite outfits.  I've been obsessing over this light blue, almost demin color.  It adds the perfect amount of color for a normally black and white type of girl like myself.  I also have been loving layers (but what else is new?).  For this outfit, I layered my favorite sweater from Free People over a floral printed slip dress and lace shorts.  It created a feminine-boho look that is atypical for myself.  I slipped on a matching hue pair of ruffle socks and darker booties to deepen up my look.  Since today was particualarly humid, and my hair doesn't look anywhere close to Pantene-worthy on these groggy days, I decided to pull it back into a messy bun with a crochet-style scrunchii -- another obsession of mine.
