Layering in the heat of summer is all about sleeveless, lightweight pieces. I layered this vest (it's unlined) over this lightweight rayon dress. The two worked well together. I've had this dress for several years (seen HERE and HERE) and had started thinking that I had exhausted my ways to wear it. Then I came across Audrey's post at Putting Me Together and was inspired to wear this dress with a vest. Her outfit features a utility vest and I could wear mine with my dress, but opted for this sleeveless blazer vest. Notice our color schemes aren't even the same. I had no need to copy her outfit (but there is nothing wrong with that either), rather hers was pure inspiration and a jumping off point for what was in my closet. 

I accessorized with my brand new Kendra Scott jewelry. My husband was sweet and accompanied me to Savannah to the Kendra Scott store the weekend before my birthday to buy an item with the 50% off birthday discount. I chose this necklace. Then he offered to also buy some earrings, since we were shopping for my birthday. I didn't want matchy earrings so I chose these in the same antique brass finish as the necklace. I almost went for the ring, but decided earrings would serve me better. 

Hope your week is moving along smoothly!
