two in one: curious birds and frugal feathers

i'm giving you two for the price of one today, lucky readers! and i am sorry to tell you, i am about to talk about weather again. i know, i know. i'll make if brief. here in minnesota we have rounded the corner into fall. it was a super sharp turn and we took it way too fast and now (today, at least) it feels like we are almost hurtling towards winter. yikes! but, whatever. it is minnesota. we get what we get and we don't have a fit. i, for one, hope fall decides to make a long appearance this year. it is my absolute favorite season to dress. tights, boots, blazers, scarves, cozy sweaters, layers! love it. now, i know some of you lucky ducks are still enjoying warm, summery weather. and for some of you on the other end of the world, spring has just sprung! but for those of you that are beginning to feel that crisp, fall chill in the air, i want to know...what are you excited to wear this season??? and how are you planning to transition some of your favorite summer looks into fall appropriate outfits?

this is a little look i threw on the other day. i got this sweater in the middle of july, and i was so excited to finally get to wear it!

sweater- Mossimo Supply Co, rummage sale, $3.00
shirt- Old Navy

oh, and i have a surprise for you all coming up tomorrow! i really hope you like it!

  1. Tights and cardigans are basically how I transition, although I'm horribly lacking in both right now. Although I did score a wicked leopard print cardi at the thrift store on Sat, wee!

  2. the sweater is great and so is the skirt but it is the tights that I am really loving, who knew blue tights could be so great, right?!?!

  3. Great cardy. Feeling nippy here in the uk too.

  4. I wrote up a post earlier today saying almost the same thing, you beat me to it though :) Seriously, what is up with this MN weather?! I LOVE fall...I just like it to be a slow transition-not a slap in the face :)

  5. Those blue tights are adorable! I feel you on the weather - NJ has been up and down with temperatures, and at this point, I wish it'd just make up it's mind!


  6. This look is just awesome! Love the tights and skirt!! :)


  7. Nora bird you look the whole ensemble and the location. Skirt is adorable. Dawn Suitcase vignettes xo

  8. i'm so loving this entire outfit. the tights, the skirt, the sweater! perfection. i'm so jonesing to wear my knee high boots and some of my winter sweaters, like my fair isle one i love so much! i can't wait til the weather cools here!

  9. I love the colors in the skirt and cute new cardigan! I know, all of a sudden fall is here and it means business!
