The past few days in Chicago have been warm and sunny, so I’m taking full advantage to wear lightweight pieces, like this white midi skirt, before winter settles in. To keep the look suitable for fall, I paired the skirt with this deep-colored bordeaux turtleneck and neutral heels. When it’s time to layer again, the top will be a repeat staple of mine throughout the season — I’d love to wear it with a fun statement necklace for daytime or a faux fur vest for a night out with girlfriends. I hope you have a great week ahead!

    Super-pretty outfit! I'm so crazy about that clutch, however I can't get over the price tag. So I'm afraid it's going to stay on my wishlist for a little while longer. 🙂

  3. I can't get enough of turtlenecks right now. They are the perfect fall layering piece, as well as take me back to my elementary school days 🙂
