WIW : Volume over Volume over...

...more volume!  Happy Sunday everyone.

I think Sunday mornings are one of my most creative times for dressing.  It might just be that I don't have to be anywhere (church) until 10.30 a.m. so I have a little more creative thinking and play time to get dressed.  Of course "creative" and "success" don't always go hand in hand:)

Hoping this is JFE (just flattering enough) to your eye.  I really enjoyed wearing it.  It felt great.

I started with wanting to wear my culottes and my open toe boots. I added a fitted white slip dress, then my Metalicus Wrap Drape Vest (secured at one shoulder and belted) and then a cropped jersey topper for the morning chill. (4 layers in all lol... I cannot help myself, I think it's an addiction!)

My healthy eating plan has seen the re-emergence of my waist which has encourged me to try a little belting again.  I really do prefer waist surrendering looks but every now and again I do love the shape belts can create.

So did I go overboard on the layering?  Thanks for taking a look:)

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Please excuse the overflowing basket of washing in #2.  It's clear where my priorities lay right!?

    That's a very nice outfit, it looks like it must have a lot of fab movement when you walk.

    You are a master of layering! And you look hot! I could see that waist immediately.

    I love all the layers and then the waist peeking through. And ditto on thinking this look must have great movement. I think it is a very strong look. Well done.

    A lot of excellent details make this work. The sliver of skin between the culottes and booties, the white underlayer, and the belt in particular.

    I agree that Autumn is perfect for layering- cool mornings and evenings require it!
    I really enjoy the fresh silhouette culottes bring to to this outfit, and defining your waist is the perfect balance with them :)

    Thanks ladies!  Glad this get's your ok.  I am looking forward to repeating this :)

    Lyn D have you worn your culottes yet?  I am loving mine and cannot wear them enough.

    The layering looks fabulous! I love the length of the pants with the booties. Perfect!

    Smashing good! I love how all the details work with each other. You have a real eye for the details and proportions needed to make this not just work, but SING on you! 

    I really love your outfits <3 They're edgy without being over the top. (Does that makes sense?)
