Curves Around the World: Layers

Hello Friends!
So today is another "Curves Around the World," post and today were talking about layers. Right now Los Angeles is going through a heat wave and we are in the 90's right now, so layers isn't something you think about when it's hot. But their are ways to layer when it's hot outside and I tried one way today on the blog. 
So one way to layer that I like doing in when it's warmer it outside and I don't want the extra warmth of a jacket might bring is I like to wear something sleeveless. Last spring and summer my favorite piece to wear when it was really warm outside but I wanted to add something to what I was wearing was a vest. A vest a great way to layer without sacrificing being hot. 
I bought this vest recently and what I loved about it was that it looked like a blazer but without the sleeves and I love how the back is sheer to give myself some extra breathing room when it's hot.

Today I dressed up the vest with different shades of blues because I wanted to do blue and white because it's another spring trend this year. It's not your usual floral for spring type trend the combination of blue and white is different and I like how they look together. I think you will be seeing me in this trend again for spring. 
Thank you so much for reading. Please check out the other lovely ladies from the group and see how they interpreted the theme of "Layers!" 

Do you like layering when it's warm out? If you do how do you like to layer when it's hot outside?

  1. Another hit Nina, I'm loving how you styled this look!! That vest is oh so FAB, I'd been hesitant to try a similar style, but now I'm ready to give it a go!
    P.S. You look great in blue & white!

    1. Thanks Joi, I wasn't sure about the vest myself but I just really love how it looked so I got one and I do love it, I can't wait to style it differently.

  2. I really love this look, Nina!! The vest is super cute, and I just love it with that pretty cobalt blue. This combination always makes me think of Greece, and I tend to do it more with bohemian looks, but your take on blue and white is so modern and cool. Do you know if the vest is still available? I have a hard time finding a vest that will work for me, but this one looks like it cold work!


    1. Thanks Cassie, I really do love the combination of blue and white and I think it goes really well together. I'm not sure if it's available now online but I did see the vest in store last week, so you can always try. :)

  3. This is soooo fierce. I can't even. It's corporate, it's urban, it's edgy, it's fresh, it's youthful, it's sophisticated. It is everything! You nailed it. The long length of the vest is so chic, and with the sheerness of the vest, it almost feels like a monochrome look. You look beautiful in blue! I can tell that you really got creative and had fun with this outfit!

    1. Awe thanks so much Liz, I really tried with this outfit to get out of my comfort zone and I'm happy it came out well.

  4. The blue and white is such a fresh look! I would never have thought to layer with sleevless items.

    1. Thanks Kate, I'm loving the white and blue together and I agree it is very fresh.
