totally turtle(neck)

img_2327

I have very actively avoided turtlenecks for at least two decades. I mean, just the name: turtleneck. It’s just…not a good name. But lately I’ve had a lot of turtleneck envy (seriously, can we look into a name change on this item of clothing?). Anyway, turtlenecks seem to have taken a turn for the chic lately.

After I saw a few people styling them so chicly, I took the plunge. I purchased my very own turtleneck from the Gap. It’s long, relaxed, cozy, warm, and so versatile. Honestly, I’m going to challenge myself to layer this turtleneck all winter and see how many ways I can wear it. Who says people don’t change? Certainly not this turtleneck wearing Huntress.

Turtleneck: Gap ($15 marked down from $35)

Dress: c/o Oasap

Leggings: (sorry can’t remember!)

Boots: Crown Vintage via DSW ($45 marked down from $120)

Coat: Ann Taylor ($88 marked down from $268)

Necklace: TJ Maxx ($15 marked down from $60)

Life lately is…watching trees transition from fall to winter, crafting a sew-mage to Frida Kahlo and a family friend having given me her pair of Tieks!

  1. turtleneck in Finland is actually called poolo (pronounced like “polo” but with longer first “o” ), so you can be the first there in the States to call turtlenecks “poolo”. 😉
    love your outfit, you know how i feel about mixing different prints! ❤
