Sparkles on Stripes

 Sweater The Loft, Chambray Top BCBG, Shorts Nasty Gal, Tights Target, Booties Modern Vintage, Necklace Homemade, Lipstick Revlon "Really Red"

I found this sweater on clearance at The Loft a few weeks ago and instantly loved the touch of sparkle in the thick stripes. Since I am constantly trying to mix in some of my summer items into my fall outfits I paired these suede shorts with tights to keep warm. I loved the way it turned out with the different textures and I'm thinking of pulling out a few more summer things from my storage bins. 
What are the ways your mixing your summer things into cooler weather?

Really nice layering job. You look great! Love the sweater!

Pretty cool! XOXO

Sorcha said...

Tights under shorts was always my biggest winter save when I was thinner. I would even throw knee-high socks over the tights to make it extra warm and break up the colours.

I really like the look of the chambray shirt under the sweater it's a little preppy but still casual.
