"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if i were a bird i would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
-- George Eliot
Yes, you have seen this 50s chiffon dress before during it's intended season, summer. I'm a firm believer in wearing anything whenever you want. So when I found this amazing 70s sweater at Nobody's Baby, I knew it would bring this dress back into the mix for fall. Do you ever wear summer dresses into the colder weather or (even trickier) winter items in summer?

A trick to mixing and matching patterns is to maintain one unifying element, in this case a distinctive color palette. The sweater itself uses this principle, since it combines the elephant pattern with very narrow stripes which pull from the same color scheme. Although a bit brighter, the dress celebrates the same summery yet autumnal palette.
(This is the dress without the sweater.)
And this is the extent of my immaturity as I show off my "finer assets" to photographer and blogger Amelia. Hope everyone is enjoying the fall without having to put away their favorite summer clothes,
