Outfit du Jour: Swans

Today's idea for wearing summer clothes in fall is to layer them with a turtleneck. They're pretty inexpensive so I have them in a variety of colors and once it gets cold out I put them under everything: t-shirts, dress shirts, dresses...whatever needs an extra layer to add warmth. I put a purple one on under this t-shirt to give the outfit a little color. Too bad it was like 90 degrees today. You can find the rest of my tips for transitioning your summer pieces into fall on the original list, 15 Ways to Wear Summer Clothes in Fall . Be sure to check back in tomorrow to see my approach at pairing bright, summer accessories with warm, fall outfits!

  1. Turtle neck is a good idea, and i love all that jewellery, especially the rings :)Thanks for joining The Buddy Group on IFB :)


  2. Wow, that bag is a great thrift find! I also love the big rings.

  3. I lovee the fedora & vintage jewelry ! I must say, I'm not a turtleneck kinda girl (I think it makes me look way shorter than I already am), but I love how you put your outfits together :)


  4. I'm seriously loving all your vintage jewelry pieces you found, good eye!

  6. Thanks guys! I'm really lucky to have been given some great vintage pieces. For instance, that mood ring was my mom's. Do you have any jewelry or clothes that were passed down to you?
