Do you ever have an outfit that just pretty much puts itself together. It happens for me. Sometimes. The ensemble was one of them, I fell asleep thinking about this one. It made getting dressed super easy the next morning--hooray for not changing outfits a million times before work!
I love how the somewhat-jocky jacket paired with the very not-jocky skirt. I also loved the red a purple together; it's a color combo I'm going to have to play with again soon!
But my favorite assessment of this outfit came from a friend's husband who declared my look to be "Egyptian Preppy." Spot on, Antony, spot on!
Turtlenecks can be super tricky with me. A lot of my biggest fears involve my neck and/or breathing so you can imagine that wearing anything super constrictive around my neck could be somewhat problematic. I definitely like the idea behind a turtleneck--keeps your neck toasty-warm--but for me I usually end up feeling like a boa constrictor is wrapped around my neck. Unless I wear a paper-thin turtleneck, like this pretty purple one!
