Ensemble: Basic Layers

So, fun story.  I moved into a new place last week and thought the balcony would be a good place to take some outfit pics.  What I didn't realize was, the door to the balcony locks automatically, which put me outside without a coat, cell phone, keys, or money until my boyfriend came home and rescued me. At which point I had ripped off the storm windows to try to break in and propped open every emergency exit in the building.  

Button down (old, similar here) and tee - Old Navy / Jeans - Gap / Shoes - LOFT / Necklace and watch - NY & Co / Bag - Target (similar here)

On another note, I used to always have problems with too much layering because my body reacts very strongly to small temperature changes (apparently this is common among redheads, but I'm not naturally a redhead so I can't really call that one).  Then I discovered layering with teeshirts instead of sweaters, and I've been a happy camper ever since.
