For those of us in the four-season states, the temperatures are really starting to drop! I finally broke out my mittens, scarves, hats and other cold-weather accoutrements this week, thus adding a whole new level of accessories to my wardrobe. But, I have to be honest: There are several pieces I acquired years ago that I know aren’t going to see the glint of snow. Just like most women, my tastes change with the seasons, but replacing winter wear always seems a bit more expensive. So instead of browsing online stores, I’ve been hitting the blogsophere for ideas, and these five DIYs are just the ticket for keeping me (and you!) warm, head to toe.

When the clock strikes 3:09 am tonight (or tomorrow morning depending on how you look at), Summer will officially come to an end marking the beginning of Fall. I thought what better way to celebrate the start of my favorite season by style swapping a perfect fall accessory, the sweater jacket.
Today’s Staple, Jacket C by Zarina, is a few steps up in warmth from the spring and summer cardigans you’ve been layering but not quite a coat, making it the perfect transition piece for the months ahead. When the days are still warm but the evening air starts to chill, this piece can be layered over a casual T and capri cords or your favorite sundress, extending the life of your summer wardrobe while keeping you feeling cozy and looking stylish.

Thinking of a story from last week’s news about sailor Abby Sunderland, I am dreaming about the ocean (from a distance). Searching for looks that don’t require me to jump in the water and sail the open seas, but maybe will help me look like I am sea- inspired .
