a lesson in layering with free people

The transition into fall is a tricky time for dressing. So when Free People (one of my favorite brands) reached out to me to share my tips for fall layering, I was totally on board. I wanted my look to be casual and carefree, but definitely something I could wear out on the town. I also wanted it to feel a bit edgier now that I’ve dyed my hair pink (!)… but still with soft, feminine touches.

I love how the crocheted details give it that soft, girly, vintage vibe. Plus, it’s a tad bit sheer, making it feel casually sexy. Then, I layered on another of my ‘must have’ wardrobe pieces, a badass vegan leather moto. There’s that edge I was talkin’ about.

The femme details pair nicely with these awesome wrapped leather boots. With their chunky heel and super soft leather, these are a pair of boots I plan to wear all the way through winter.

    This is amazing! I actually just dyed my hair like this three days ago, so I will be following for outfit inspiration! :) Love the look of the leather jacket with such a feminine top!

    Free people is a store I always go in. I love their clothes, but have no idea how to incorporate it into my everyday boring (tee’s and jeans) style.
