Christmas Turtle





My Threads: Sweater: H&M (similar), Pants: GoJane (similar), Pumps: Jessica Simpson (similar), Clutch: H&M (similar in pink), Bracelets: Charming Charlie, Watch: Michael Kors (similar

So this is maroon, not red. I do realize that. But maroon is sort of like red, which makes it sort of Christmas-y. And I doubled up on the hue. Because Maroon x 2 obviously = red. So there you have it, my holiday outfit math.

I really love how cozy turtlenecks are in colder weather, but they kind of make me feel claustrophobic. Plus, I have a gigantic head. In fact, those are the first words I heard when I was born. "What a big head." Not that I actually remember them. Anyway, it's actually hard to find turtlenecks that fit over my head. I know, big brain problems. I'm kidding.

Also, after a lengthy internal debate, I finally gave into faux leather pants. They aren't the most practical pants, but they do lend this chunky turtleneck an extra ounce of cool. 

Happy Thursday!

  3. LOVE the leather leggings. Those are killer! And maroon looks fantastic on you... I went to MSU for college and we are maroon and white so I think it's pretty darn fantastic in general!

  4. I'm going to have to buy the Topshop leggings. I can't believe they're only $36! I've been dying for a pair of leather or faux-leather leggings! They look great with your sweater too!

  7. I love this look. I styled one almost exactly like it a few weeks ago. I think the burgundy qualifies as red : )

  9. One of my friends has been trying to talk me into leather leggings, but I've resisted. If you feature a few more outfits with them, I might have to give in... :)
