The Comeback

It’s December which means for the next month I will relentlessly dress like it’s Christmas every single day. Okay probably not every day but expect lots of holiday dresses, colors and a possible sequined sighting. Why? Because it’s the most wonderful time of the year and I don’t have any other reasons. That’s why. (Plus, doesn’t this coat just feel like the holidays? I think so too.)

As I wondered the aisles of Target the other night picking groceries / christmas decorations / anther color of nail polish even though I never paint my nails, I found this perfect little turtleneck. I feel like turtlenecks have had a very gracious comeback in the past few seasons. Because I wore turtlenecks of the 90s constantly as a kid I never really cared if they came back in style or not. But once I got over my childhood distaste of them, I really like the look of them now. Is it because I’m not pairing them with a wind suit and sneakers? Perhaps. One shall never know.

    I absolutely despised turtlenecks and now I feel like they are everywhere! I still haven't caved but I feel myself getting close

    I just picked up a turtleneck from Old Navy and I forgot how much I love them! I went to Target a record breaking four times the week before last, but I didn't come across this. Guess it's time to go back πŸ˜‰

    Agreed! On both fronts — the turtlenecks and the too many trips to Target. πŸ˜‰

  16. Love your coat! (and of course the bag because we are twinsies!)

    I totally get what you mean with turtlenecks. I still associate them with the 90s look of wind suits and sneakers, but also because i have a short torso and covering my neck doesn't help. Maybe i'll have to give them a try again.

    Can't wait to see more of your festive looks for the month!
