I started off this morning with what I thought was just a brilliant idea. I had done closet shopping over the weekend and came up with some sketches for the week. The theme: turtlenecks.
Turtlenecks are always on everyone's must have list, and we all think of Audrey Hepburn so chic in hers. But in reality, its a lot harder to put into practice. It all comes down to bust line character--small=good; big=bad.
I love the purple and green combo, and tried it with the purple ribbed turtleneck and my green cargo skirt. The turtleneck alone ended up being too much bust for me, so I added the scarf. Then I tried getting creative with the scarf(thanks Serene!) but by the end of the day, I had the scarf another way.
I thought the black tights and the hiking boots would be sort of construction chic. I saw some cute Sorel's in Lucky, and thought, why not try my hiking boots?
The weather was absolutely miserable here today; raining at 43 degrees with a wind. It really doesn't get that much worse! This coat works perfectly though, waterproof faux fur.
