Gingham Shirt & Layers

It’s finally felt like fall around here for at least a week now. I decided to layer up a gingham shirt I found in a thrift store a few years ago and pair some opaque tights with my freshly polished boots (thank you, H!) with a super comfortable t-shirt style dress I found at Target this summer.   It’s become one of my favorite fall pieces.  It’s lightweight and versatile making it fun to dress up or down.

Meet my co-host for the week, Ashley from Fancy Stuff & Pretty Things! We met not so long ago when she stated that we had similar styles and it’s true! Each time I visit her blog, which was a quick forming habit, I think, “I have that!” or “I would TOTALLY wear that!”  Her latest post about being a Joan not a Betty was spot on.  Ashley’s style is classic with a modern spin. It’s clean, elegant and beautiful.  I’m sure you will love her too!



The rules are simple:

  1. Follow Victoria on Bloglovin or Ashley.
  2. Follow me on Instagram or Ashley.
  3. Link back to Victoria or Ashley.
  4. Meet new friends, leave comments and have fun!

      That was a big concern of mine in layering but this particular shirt is almost tissue-thin. It works great for layering!

    I have a couple of sweater dresses myself which I’ll have to try wearing over a shirt and see whether it doesn’t look too stuffed. Yours is looking great, no weird wrinkles etc. I also love your necklace!

    I totally need more tops like the gingham and I love it layered. I always feel bulky, I need to step out of my comfort zone. Great look lady.

    Thank you so much for joining the #reasonstodress real mom street style linkup! I’m so glad you joined and invited me to this awesome linkup!! I will add your badge and join this wednesday and I’ll be sure to visit these lovely ladies.

    I really love your t-shirt dress, I have to admit thought you are so THIN you can totally pull this off. I would be worried about how buttons from the dress shirt etc. sat underneath but it actually looks so polished and smooth. A very put together easy look.

    I would love to have you join me again tomorrow for the linkup , if you get a chance a link back somewhere on your post or blog is much appreciated.

    Nice to meet you Victoria you have a new regular, and I would LOVE to co-host this linkup with you!
