Pencil Skirt

Oh turtlenecks, I can’t believe there was once a time when I couldn’t stand wearing you. It was one of those items, much like pants, that I hated wearing as a child. All I wanted was a pretty dress and pretty shoes. While this hasn’t changed one bit, I’ve come to the realization that a basic turtleneck is a wonderful piece to have in your wardrobe. It can be seamlessly dressed up or down and moves equally seamlessly from day to night. Turtlenecks also prove to be great layering pieces for turning your summer dresses into more winter-friendly attire.

    I totally agree; the turtleneck is so very versatile. I’m in fact wearing one today and I used to dislike wearing them too. Your outfit looks great!

    Wowsa!! Look at that belt, the brocade, the lush green accents, blowing me away here Jessica. This might be one of my fave outfits of yours. Channeling some serious glam.
