Fall In Summer

Dress: thrifted   Sweater: AE   Bag: c/o Jolly Chic   Oxfords: Payless
Apparently, it can turn stormy and rainy even in the midst of June heat! Last week we had a few days of cloudiness and rain, which meant one thing to me - break out the sweaters!

While I absolute love summer heat and soaking in the warmth during this time, I adore fall and winter fashion. The clothes are pretty much the only thing that appeal to me during that time...otherwise, just call me a plant, because the cold just withers me away. Albeit, I'm quite excited for what Caleb has planned to do to help me - he plans on making a heater hoodie just for me! If he succeeds, I'll have to do a post on it...

Ah well, I recently invested in a clearance find from the American Eagle clearance rack, and I just know this slouchy, thin-knit sweater will be getting a lot of wear!

I must be feeling romantic or something, because this outfit is super cute and girly - not a look I'm entirely used to wearing. I'm also wearing oxfords for what must be the first time ever. While I feel they look odd and stumpy on me when worn with jeans, they look perfectly adorable with tights and a dress!
For a brunch date with my roommates, it felt appropriate. 
We decided to check out an Italian cafe we'd never been to and had the best time together. It's wonderful to get along so fabulously with each of them! We ate paninis, made fun of each other's foam mustache, went thrifting (omgsssh, found quite a few pretty things that day too), and then took photos.
All in all, a fabulous day with some fabulous ladies!
I'm starting to think these brunch dates may become a more regular occurence too.

Ah, I am totally swooning over this ensemble - totally my kind of thing! Love the soft, pale colour, indeed very romantic! And I agree, oxfords like dresses and skirts is so cute, if only I had better luck thrifting and scored myself a pair! The hunt continues...

You look great Linda! Love the clearance find from American Eagle. Brunch dates are the best things ever, aren't they? I love brunching with my girlfriends. It's just so funnnn :)

Soo cute and girly, Linda- I love it all so much! By the way, where is your bag from? It doesn't show where it's from above. Anyway, I totally love your idea of layering over a dress- too cute:) For some reason I also love being able to wear some fall/winter apparel during the cool mist of summer. Anyway, glad to see you get along with your roommates- hopefully I'll be able to meet great people next year when I head into dorms!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

The soft colors are dreamily girly and I love it. They compliment the richness of the tights and the oxford shoes. ^_^

Love your slouchy sweater, it's the perfect piece and I can see it pairing nicely with so much. Plus, me too, whenever the temperatures dip (like today) I love breaking out my tights and dressing a little more fall-esque! So my favourite time of year for fashion!! xoxo

I love this layered look! The tights are such a pretty color and that's such a nice sweater :)

And yesss finding new food places is the best! Especially for brunches.

katie said...

A heater hoodie sounds like the most amazing thing ever. If he does make one for you you'll have to tell me how because I am totally going to try to figure it out. A hoodie filled with heaters in the middle of winter - totally wonderful. :)
I love how cute this is with the oxfords! i always feel really stumpy in mine as well but you look so tall in your pictures! I guess I'll have to take some style notes from you.

Amazing skirt and bag, really love this look!

lol I am the same way about getting cold and withering away--it seems like the instant I walk into a building, I freeze, so I always dress a little warmer than I should anyway. BUT AUGH! I love how romantic this outfit is. You're right about how sweet it is, Miss Linda. :)

Hope you are having an extraaaoooorrrdinary summer so far!

Alessandra Mazzini said...

So cute. I love fall fashion too, and it's pretty much IMPOSSIBLE to get away with it down here unless you have no sweat glands. Lol.

I love summer to fall fashion too. This is right on point! And the oxfords suit you well. They're so pretty and vintage-y. :)
