For A Wintery Day

by dietingfashions on November 16, 2011

Top: J. Crew Merino Turtleneck in Bright Coral
Bottom: Express Editor Slacks in Brown
Scarf: Ann Taylor Loft Floral Print Scarf
Shoes: Ann Taylor Loft Suede Pumps in Black
Handbag Ann Taylor Loft Hobo Bag in Black
Belt: Ann Taylor Loft Hair Calf Skinny Belt

With this outfit, I am entering my first Fashion contest hosted by Cute and Little. I love turtlenecks. I start pulling out all my turtlenecks as soon as Fall starts. I just can’t wait to wear my winter clothes. It doesn’t get too cold in Houston, unfortunately. I am pretty sure I get funny looks from people because I will wear a sweater when it’s 70 degrees outside. I just love cooler weather.

J. Crew fashions are to die for. They always have brights, brights! I got this turtleneck while J. Crew was having their 50% off all sale items. Thank goodness for that or I would not have gotten this turtleneck. The color is very pretty and feminine. I paired this top with a Floral Print scarf that just pops even more against the coral turtleneck. I didn’t know if I should have worn a lighter colored pants. The brown slacks didn’t show very well in the light. It looks more black in the picture.

I am going live outside my box and experiment more with brights. This challenge was pretty fun.

Thank you! Yes J. Crew has some great fashions. Where else do you like to shop? I’m always looking for fashion forward shops.

I love scarves. They are the perfect layering tool. I love how you used it in this look to add a pattern.

Thank you so much! Scarves are so versatile as a tool. I have 10 scarves but I’m planning to add more. Who knew scarves can just kick an outfit up a notch? =)
