Timeless in Tortoiseshell

September is upon us (hello Virgo season), and it's time to start packing away the summer sandals and shorts. This is my first summer to fall transition on the East Coast! I'm used to the hot to cold to suddenly snowing weather of the Midwest. Instead of the rapid shift in climate, I actually get to enjoy the changing of the leaves! As I'm wrapping up summer and reflecting on what I wore most, I noticed the amount of tortoiseshell I seemed to find myself wearing on an (almost) daily basis. After lusting over J.Crew's assortment of tortoiseshell earrings, I found a similar pair for under $5 from Forever 21. To my delight, the oversized tortoiseshell button trend that cropped up last summer was still alive and well giving me another season of style out of my favorite sundress. The classic flair of tortoiseshell gives the nod to accessories of the 1950s. Dawning a pair of modern-day tortoiseshell sunnies, I'm packing away summer and crafting the retro elegance of tortoiseshell into my fall wardrobe.
