november in georgia can be a rollercoaster ride when it comes to temps. one day the low is in the 30s or 40s, with highs in the 50s or 60s. the very next day, the temps can soar into the 70s or 80s with lows in the 60s. you never know quite what to expect. the midwest saw these exact fluctuations come spring or fall so i’m no stranger to ‘what to wear’ when the weather changes. this week we’re in for near-perfect temperatures with sunny skies and highs of 61 or 62—time for turtlenecks and blue jeans.
even in the summer months, i’m known to sport a sweater or two. sleeveless turtlenecks are a favorite, as are cotton or linen crewnecks and cardigans. i guess you’d say i’m a sweater kind of girl. or better yet, a turtleneck kind of girl. anyone remember the famous turtleneck line from Somethings Gotta Give? “what’s with the turtlenecks?” he asked. “i like them. i’ve always liked them. i guess i’m just a turtleneck kind of gal.” now that was a great movie. one of my favorites. and i quite agree with erica barry on the subject of sweaters.
turtlenecks and blue jeans
y’all know i love cashmere sweaters. it’s the perfect choice for a cold winter day. but i also like to have lighter weight sweaters on hand. this mixed media turtleneck from Ann Taylor (btw AT is having a flash sale 11.17 on cashmere – 25% off) is one such sweater. notice the sweater is cleverly constructed with a shell underneath for a layered look that’s built-in. and what’s better than turtlenecks and blue jeans (old, similar here), especially this time of year? that’s right – nuthin’. the shoes are from Frances Valentine, my new favorite brand. love the mini-block heel with red lizard-embossed leather. it’s the perfect daytime shoe with a ladylike flair. this ootd is simplistic in nature, so i added gold hoops, a gold bangle (old, similar here), and a snazzy handbag before i stepped out the door.
