I drove to work this morning thinking that the 20 degree drop in temperature might throw a wrench into Helen’s semester long fashion strategy. Was she planning for a warm September, hoping to stretch the summer wardrobe well into the fall? Will her plans to go sleeveless on October 1st be foiled? Or would she take the plunge today and break out the tweeds and wools? As expected, she rose to the occasion and straddled the seasons, selecting a beautiful rose colored silk blend sweater with a hint of summer, paired with putty colored trousers and matching camisole, for a hint of fall. The outfit was accessorized with chocolate colored peek-a-boo shoes and a mixed metal multi-strand Silpada necklace. A cross-seasonal winner.
