Do you have a striped black and white turtleneck in your closet? If not, get one. Yesterday. During some after Thanksgiving shopping, I bought this one from Old Navy for a whopping $8. Unfortunately, it’s sold out now, but I found this one from Macy’s for $14.99.
I never realized how much I was missing! I actually have a black and white striped t-shirt, but this turtleneck has quickly become my go-to piece. It’s seriously a game-changer. I’m not even a huge fan of turtlenecks because I don’t like my neck and I think they typically emphasize my double chin! BUT…this style is a thin, lightweight version that doesn’t ride up too high or graze one of my least favorite features.
I’ve worn it by itself and as a layering piece. A lot!
If you still need convincing or if you just need some styling inspiration, here are some pics I found on Pinterest and shared on “My Pinterest Closet” board. Notice, I’ve already used some as inspiration and full intend to recreate all of these looks!
Know what I found while pinning? Some of these images are years old! That just goes to show you how classic and versatile this piece is! (Unless that just means I have outdated style! whomp whomp!) Do you already have a striped turtleneck? What’s your favorite way to style it? I’d love to see new ideas!
As always, thanks for reading!
Long time, no post, right?! As much as I hoped I’d be blogging more, it’s like I can’t seem to catch up with life! But I had to share this post with you because it’s a giveaway for all my Birmingham-area friends!
Standby for details.
First, you may or may not have known that my family and I welcomed our newborn on the same day we closed on our new house! Yes, it was an insanely crazy time to say the least. So you understand why getting settled has been a slow-going process. We aren’t anywhere near finished. Mind you, we moved from a two-bedroom townhome to a five bedroom house, so filling it up is going to take lots of time and dinero. And last I checked, money trees weren’t included with the property!
Here is a shot of the new abode!
We got new living room furniture, but still need an area rug and accessories. This is where we are so far.
We still need to do something about that obnoxious tv cable! At least it’s functional and the furniture is cozy! Also, forgive the lighting discrepancy. Life happens and I didn’t have time to take all of the pics in the daytime!
As for the kitchen, I know white is all the rage right now, but granite and dark cabinets came with the house and I still love the style. But because it is on the darker side, I’m trying to keep everything else lighter. It’s still pretty bare bones, though. We need to get appropriate-sized counter stools, which will be an ivory or oatmeal color. And wall art will be in lighter tones, too.
I’ve included some “pinspiration” of what I’d like it to become eventually! I can dream, can’t I?!
In the meantime, you can bet your next mortgage payment I’ll be pinning away for more ideas! You can follow me on Pinterest here. I’m also hoping to get some inspiration from The Birmingham Home Show!
