Tip Tuesday #2- The Secret to Converting Summer Outfits to Winter Outfits

On this snowy, sleety, slushy day my thoughts turn to warm, sunny days. I imagine myself lying on the beach, sipping a cool drink and letting the warmth of the sun embrace me… Mid thought, I'm shaken back to reality by the loud shrill of my daughter screaming "I can't find my snow pants"!!! And so, winter has (unofficially) begun...

If you’re “lucky” enough to live in a place where you experience seasons, you know what a pain it is to have to keep rotating your seasonal clothes, not to mention the added expense of maintaining seasonal wardrobes.  So, what’s the secret to extending the “shelf life” of your summer clothes? (Drum roll please…)- Layer your summer tops with a TURTLENECK! Turtlenecks are versatile and can easily be layered under most summer tops from tees to tunics, to tanks to halter dresses to so much more!!

OK, so some of you may be saying – Turtlenecks? They don’t work with my style, or they’re uncomfortable. I know, I know... I was with you, but I've been using this “trick” for a while now and it’s saved me time and money, therefore, I’m a believer! There are many different types of turtlenecks out there- If you don’t want to wear a plain black one? Wear any color, print, or design that matches you outfits. If you don’t like how the turtleneck fits around your neck? Try a mock turtleneck instead.
