There are only a few good things about summer ending, and one of them is getting to re-visit the art of layering. Last fall, I had a tendency to reach for college sweatshirts, and cardigans. My efforts to look nice were definitely lacking, due to a large load of school work. I'm going to try to be different this year, seeing as how I'll be a grown-up in grad school.

Tip #827: Pair together items that you normally wouldn't wear alone. When I saw this blue dress shirt, I couldn't picture myself wearing it anywhere but an interview. I spontaneously paired it with this army green shirt-jacket, and voila! I have a new outfit that I love.
Tip #832: If something that is out-dated fits, and is pretty new, you may want to keep it, instead of donating it. The leopard print shoes you see below, I purchased 4 years ago, during my freshman year of college. I've recently noticed these to be gaining popularity lately, as seen on stars like Kourtney Kardashian, Rihanna, and Cameron Diaz.
