School Girl Layers

I love the idea of layering, but to be honest, I'm not the best at it. For awhile, I've been searching for the perfect sweatshirt to layer over dresses and tops – not too bulky, but still has shape, not cropped too high, etc. etc. I found this on sale at Aritzia (my favourite store to get basics from) and it's nearly perfect.

Layering a sweater over an oxford dress imparts such a classic, school girl look, that remains youthful, but still professional. It's also my favourite way to winterize this particular dress. The sweater over oxford shirt (or shirt dress in my case) just makes me feel like Hermione, especially when my hair is a mess. Bad hair day? It's okay, I'm Hermione in disguise, right?

  6. Super cute! What did you wear under it though? The wind here is horrendous, it's hard wearing skirts at all sometimes.

  16. Thanks! I wish they were a couple inches taller, since they tend to fall down to below the knee, rather than just above.

  23. Thanks Gina. I don't have to deal with wind usually with this dress as the fabric is heavier, but for my chiffon skirts that tend to blow up, I have a pair of sports shorts to wear under.

  24. Thanks so much!

  25. Thanks Laura! I'm so happy to have a sweater that's just meant to be layered.

  26. Thanks Jordan. It's really funny, because this colour is the only reason I shelled out for a Celine. I just couldn't get the cobalt out of my head when I first saw it (and while I love the shape, the rest of the colours aren't as nice in my opinion)!

  27. Thanks Chioma!
