For A Wintery Day

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.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.
