I’ve been really into layering tanks over blouses and tees lately 1. It’s a 2-in-1! It gives me the option for a lil’ warmth or to take one top off and feel the breezee 2. To switch up the vibe of a certain piece, taking it from a “weekend only” top to work appropriate! I swear there have been many mornings where I’m half asleep and throw on anything… to then go eat lunch with my mom and she says “You’re pretty casual for work Kara!” *Inserts judge-y mom eyes*.

Since I love a casual chic look, I figured out a way to play up my workwear while not looking like I’ve already planned my happy hour fit at 8am. My fav go-to for work is layering a sparkly jeweled crop or tank over an oversized collared button down- Snazzy yet simple!  For the weekend, I opt for an off the shoulder top, as shown, and if you’re anything like me you’ve worn over and over again throw a tube or tank top over it to create a layering look that’s bound to impress.

Totally unrelated, but who’s going to be at Coachella Weekend 1?? I would love to meet everyone + y’all make sure to stay tuned and see my festival style on ig @commonpolished !
