Express Style: Sweater Layering

Since the weather hasn't hit record lows just yet, I'm holding off on bringing out the pants and embracing the very last days of bare legs. In today's case I'm doing it with the help of Express. I actually found this adorable mock neck sweater after doing some digging in their new arrivals a couple of weeks back and immediately knew I had to bring it home with the addition of a couple of other goodies. While it's likely the 100th black sweater in my closet who could resist the cozy 'just throw me on' feel or the under $60 price tag? It was a done deal before even trying it on. Really. Since I'm resisting the urge to just throw on a pair of jeans for the moment I wanted to explore other layering options to match up to the ideal fall weather we've been experiencing for the last few weeks. So, I scooped up this delicate little shift dress to wear with my newly found (and quite possibly favorite) sweater for laid back feminine daytime look. Just a sliver of skin and lace, making the the dress and sweater styling the perfect lunch date attire to my newly re-opened favorite Thai place in Astoria, Pochana. After dark, ditch the cozy outer layer in exchange for a little leather and voila! You're ready for a night on the town with friends. 

As the weather starts to head into heavier layers, swap out bare legs for jeans. I'm thinking distressed high waisted denim and block heeled booties. Cozy up with a spiced latte, blanket scarf and faux shearling jacket (like this one, need!). Don't forget the easy carryall like this adorable drawstring tote
