And just like that… We’re back to turtleneck weather in May. Womp, womp. It’s one freezing Friday in Chicago today… 41 degrees and raining. At least it makes staying inside and working a whole lot easier?
One of my favorite (and easiest!) ways to transition my summer dresses (both in the spring and the fall) is to layer a tissue-thin turtleneck underneath! I got this gingham dress last summer at Modcloth and I could have sworn I styled in on the blog, but I guess I never did. Kind of surprising for how much I wore it!
Some necklines are harder to layer than others, but it almost always works with a spaghetti strap style! The simpler, the better.
Here are a few more black and white gingham dresses available now…
I’ve been hunting for a simple black leather tote forever and finally found this one when I was in Amsterdam a few weeks ago! Besides my little evening bag and various black clutches, I didn’t have a black bag for daytime. Since I wear a lot of black, especially during the winter, this was kind of a must-have for me!
I got this black moto jacket in the fall and can’t even count the number of times I’ve worn it since then… 50-something, if I had to guess. Traveling in Europe, nights out, and chilly spring days, too! It actually came with a removable fur collar (styled on the blog here!), but it’s unbelievably versatile without. You’d never believe it was only $100, would you?! It’s held up SO WELL, too. There’s one size left on Nordstrom (one size smaller than what I have) so scoop it up if it fits!
Kind of hard to find this time of year, but here are a few more moto styles I’m loving…
