Guys: summer is getting so real right now. Don’t get me wrong: I love to layer everything and anything, but when it’s 80+ degrees outside and when you’re bombarded with humidity, you want to wear the absolute minimal amount of clothing as possible.

However, let me introduce you to my two favorite pieces to layer this season: this Target vest and these handcrafted Shop Alisha Nicole necklaces. This vest from Target is incredibly lightweight and is the ideal piece to throw over feminine dresses and rompers.

Also, I’ll admit: I’m not the biggest jewelry layering pro, but Alisha Nicole necklaces are made to be layered together. They’re handcrafted with love in North Carolina, and the quality of these pieces are exceptional. I can’t wait to mix in these two necklaces with the other jewelry pieces I have. These easy, lighweight baubles are a must for the summer.

    I absolutely love that layered necklace! I’m not much of a jewelry person either so I love thinner more delicate pieces like that one!
