OH the turtleneck. It’s a frequent conversation topic for my work friends, and I. The girls revere turtlenecks as the ultimate winter layering piece, or classic sweater staple. The men? Well they joke about a grandma vibe, but let them chatter … we’ll be sitting all toasty warm in the corner.

Let’s count the different styling options:

  1. Over a flowy or fit and flare skirt with a killer pair of heels. We can’t go totally elderly.
  2. Keep your hair tucked in for a faux-bob.
  3. A thick knit with light-wash boyfriend jeans, and slingbacks.
  4. Thin turtleneck underneath a thicker turtleneck. Feel free to push up those shirt sleeves and show the pairing.
  5. Underneath a blazer, nubby house coat, or really anything else.
  6. A neutral look head-to-toe.

If you have any great ideas for how you wear your turtleneck feel free to share. I’m always up for some new inspo.

This weekend I journeyed up to the Hudson Valley in New York. Sometimes you just need to smell some good old country air and listen to some solid Spotify playlists to clear your head.

With the holiday’s fast approaching (sidenote, they’re like here) this felt like one of the last low-key weekends I’d be having for a while. I chose to stick with a pretty dark and rich palate, which I tend to strongly favor in the fall. The turtleneck, skinny jean, and flat ankle boot feels frills free and warm, perfect for an outfit I don’t really want to use any brain power for.

Enter my new favorite hat (by the way, this is a L/XL large for my fellow large headed ladies) and coat and the rest of the day felt entirely before me.

Hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving – hug your loved ones tight and tell each and every one how thankful you are.
