To reiterate a recent tweet, “you know you’re a florida girl when you take pictures of the snow.” Though I’ve lived in the northeast for over 5 years, snow (as well as fall foliage) is still a novelty and I become giddy with joy at the sight of it. Nonetheless, the temperature has been consistently below freezing, which has made me the opposite of giddy, and one way I’ve been keeping warm is by
staying inside wearing cashmere. Case in point: my black cashmere turtleneck from Alice + Olivia and ’80s-esque Qi Cashmere headband, which keeps my ears impressively warm. I’ll preface this by saying that I tend to avoid traditional turtlenecks at all costs, the exception being funnel or cowl-necks (more on those low cost phentermine no prescription styles in a future post). But this one is so warm, I can’t resist. I snagged it at a sample sale a several years ago and it’s still in impeccable condition. On a side note, I think I sort of pulled it off without looking like a college professor (yes, the joke is that I used to be a college instructor at one point). To make the look more fun and current, I paired it with ModCloth’s ‘Frost in Thought’ skirt for a pop of color. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I love how the snowflakes on the skirt perfectly parallel the snowflakes outside. However, I think I’ll invest in thicker wool tights before I go anywhere near the snow. What do you think? Have I convinced you to wear a turtleneck?
