Spring Into Winter - Target Style - Green Jumper - Fuzzy White Vest - Value Village - Thrifted Turtleneck Sweater

Hi friend!

Welcome back to the blog! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. As we switch into the Holiday season, you’re probably shopping for new sweaters, oversized cardigans, and comfy coats. But wait, what about your favorite spring and summer items?

Before you haul your favorite floral dresses and skirts away, I’m inviting you to Spring Into Winter Style Challenge. I believe that with a little bit of styling and a little bit of love, we can bring our favorite spring and summer pieces into our winter wardrobe. I believe we can maximize all of our wardrobes –regardless of the season. And since we’re probably shopping for gifts for our loved ones, why don’t we shop our closets to save a little money this season?

Here’s how I Spring Into Winter:

So today I’m sharing how I took my favorite spring jumper (first featured on the blog here) into winter. I decided to layer this jumper with a neutral blue and white striped turtleneck sweater and a fuzzy green vest. I honestly feel like I’m wearing a blanket when I wear this vest! I added holiday glam and sparkle with pearl embellished heels!

Where I would wear this Spring Into Winter look:

Now that I’m winding down with school because it’s almost the end of fall quarter, I’ll be heading out to blogger events again! I would wear this look either at a blogger event or a Friday night dinner with my girlfriends.
