Wardrobe Diaries: Playing Favourites



If there's one item in my closet that I simply cannot live without, it's my humble turtleneck. In terms of versatility and comfort I'd say it's right up there with the white tee. In fact I'm even going to propose right now that we make this the official cold weather uniform. However unlike the ever popular white tee, the turtleneck gets a bad rap. It's pragmatic approach to dressing means it's rarely ever associated with being on-trend or fashionable. After all how many of the fashion world's most coveted items are also ever pragmatic (minus IM wedge sneakers)?

Whenever I wake up to a chilly morning, I automatically reach for my turtlenecks. It's one of those little wonders where after I've slipped into, I immediately feel 10x warmer and 10x more alive and ready to start the day. Kind of like that feeling when you sip piping hot soup on a cold winters day or jumping into a hot shower after a day in the rain. On a different note, how adorable is this leather skirt? The chiffon layer peeping out was too precious to pass up. Not to mention, the fact that being white leather means I literally could wear it all year long.

You look amazing in these photos, I esp love the skirt. H&M had a similar version it's leather right? I was tempted to get it from H&M but white leather? I'd get very little wear from it in Chicago.

Very pretty hat! Love it and the neutral colors in your outfit :)

Seriously, how gorgeous are you?? I definitely agree about turtlenecks--I think they are way underrated but can work in so many ways! And those shoes- every time I see them, I get more and more envious!

Ah..the turtleneck. I have one in black but don't wear as often as I would like to. If I look as good as you do in a turtleneck I would definitely wear it more!

Love this outfit from head-to-toe. Those shoes!! And I'm probably going to have to agree with you - the turtleneck is just as classic as the white tee.

I adore your hat. It adds a certain pizzazz to the outfit. I haven't worn my turtleneck tops in years. Might just have to drag them out from the deep abyss of my drawers.
