gypsy soul.

i've come to the realization that i'm somewhat of a lazy dresser. i love buying tops that i can wear alone and pair them with a simple pair of skinnies. i rarely experiment with layers other than a possible cardi.
so when i received this breathtakingly beautiful dress from sugarlips, my first (lazy) though was to pair with with a simple black cardigan, but i decided to try something a little different...
it took me a couple of pairings, but when i tried this chambray top under it, i really liked the juxtaposition of denim and chiffon. another pairing i liked and will probably wear in the future was a darker chambray top over top, tied in a knot at the waist, and if i had a leather jacket, i think that would be a beautiful addition to this pretty dress.
what do you think? how would you wear this dress? 
do you have any good laying tips?

Well, I think this is pretty darn adorable! ;)

I am obsessed with layering! You could try that chambray over the dress, too, try drapey sweaters under leather jackets, add a chunky scarf and tights. Even a vest! A vest over a sweater! ...so many possibilities!


P.S. If you haven't heard "Into the Mystic" by Van Morrison, listen immediately! Your title reminded me of it. <3

Love this dress, so pretty - an army jacket would make a cool contrast over it, too.
