Topshop lace collar knit, Free People dress, Cotton On socks, Free People x Jeffrey Campbell heels, vintage bag
Anyone down under would tell you that it's been a scorching hot summer. The one beautiful day where temperatures hovered just around the 20-degree mark last week, and that inspired this sweet transitional get-up, is currently NOWHERE to be found. But cooler temperatures are (hopefully) most definitely around the corner and I plan on stretching wear of my summer pieces to the best of my layering abilities.
One of my favourite (read: easiest) ways to cope with in-between weather is to throw a jumper over a dress. There's about a million ways you could do this with all sorts of knits - chunky, cropped, oversized, embellished - take your pick. Wearing the same breezy dress + comfy heels combination I wore here - summer style, I simply threw a super sweet knit, complete with a vintage-inspired lace collar, and pulled on a paired of colour-blocked socks. You might decide that you prefer tights over socks instead. Sling a vintage backpack over one shoulder and the result is a back-to-school look in sweet cotton candy shades of pink that makes you feel 12 again. Pondering if that's a good or bad thing..
