Vintage Outfit Post-Casual Tartan and Jeans from Freddie's of Pinewood and a Trip to Demarest Farms

It's that time of year, there's a crisp note in the air and the days are growing shorter.  If your like me your thinking of tartans and plaids and wools and all those other glorious fall fabrics. 

 In fact if your like me you may want to start sporting some of those fall fashion elements before it really is cold enough too, which is what makes transitional outfits so much fun.   By transitional outfits I mean anything that can carry you through the change of seasons.  I think this tartan trimmed top from Freddie's of Pinewood is the perfect summer to fall example.  It is made of a light weight fabric but the rust red color and tartan trim is a very autumnal color scheme.

Like all Freddie's items this top is excellent quality and since I nabbed it after Brexit when the exchange rate fell I got it for a very good price.  The tartan trim is from an authentic 1950s ribbon and so there was a very limited run of these tops.  Like all Freddie's tops it runs a bit small.  Im wearing a largeIt fits well but I'm very glad I didn't get a medium as that would have been much too snug.  

I accesorized the top with a Luxulite Pocket Puppy Brooch and a 1950s tartan barette.  Of course I worse some of my bakelite bangles too.

Freddie's tops are faithful 1950s reproductions so they are not cut like modern shirts, which means by current standards they run a bit short.  They really work best with Freddie's jeans or other 1950s style pants or skirts.  I'm wearing my shirt with my Freddie's jeans, hands down the best dungarees in the world.

I wore this outfit on a day we visited one of my favorite local places, Demarest Farms.  Since this was a middle of the week, early morning, trip we knew it wouldn't be too crowded and we brought all the dogs.  

The delicious apple cider donuts helped keep them in line.

 They are definitely eager to go back for more soon.  How do you like to celebrate the change of seasons?

  7. Such a charming outfit! Love (!!!) your adorable Luxulite Pocket Puppy brooch.

    Honestly, it's never too soon to start celebrating fall in my books and I keep my love of that season alive all throughout the year. That said, I really start veering into it around mid to late August, and from Sept - late November/early December, it's at the heart of most of what I'm doing and wearing (and I wouldn't have it any other way! :)).

    Big hugs & joyful start of autumn wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
