I was probably a little too excited to team up with People.comOld Navy for their #50Styles50States campaign to talk about how living in North Carolina has influenced my style. You see I’m a South Carolinian born and bred and lived in SC my entire life up until when I got married. When Zach and I started dating I was living in Greenville and would regularly drive up to the mountains. We love to be outside and (pre-kids) would frequently play tennis, golf, ride 4-wheelers, shoot guns and occasionally hike. Emphasis on occasionally. No matter how many times I made the trek up the mountain I just couldn’t wrap my mind around the temperature change. To me I was just driving 35 minutes and the fact that there could be a 10 degree temp. change was literally blowing my mind. It became a running joke to the point that Zach actually bought me jackets to keep at his house for when I would cruise up to the cool mountains completely unprepared. Once we got married and I officially became a mountain dweller I was still driving down to SC every day for work so you better believe I learned the art of layering. I hate to be cold, hate to be hot and hate to feel like I’m suffocating wearing too many things all tangled up. (I know I’m the worst). So what is a girl to do? Invest in easy breezy separates that layer seamlessly, look stylish and don’t make you feel like a marshmellow man that’s what!

This outfit is representative of my go-to layering recipe. First, wear a long-sleeve lightweight dress with booties. If your feet get too hot you can throw on sandals and if your upper body gets too hot you can roll the sleeves. Then for when you need to make the look work for cooler temps throw on a utility jacket and if you need a big scarf. I’m not particularly a fan of tights and dresses but you could do that too if you suffer from cold-leg-syndrome. (FYI totally not a real thing.) If you are liking what I’m putting down then scurry on over to Old Navy and pick up this dress, jacket & bootie combo. The pieces are so cute and the prices are oh-so-nice!

    I love wearing floral dresses for fall, especially as a good summer to autumn transition. It’s still 80 degrees here though, so not adding jackets just yet! You look so lovely!
