Happy Hump Day! Hopefully you’ve already had your cup(s) of coffee and are thriving through your workday, whether that be with your job or classes! I also hope you’re still not thrown off from losing an hour of sleep from a few nights ago, thanks to a little something called Daylight Savings. It threw me off for sure, I’m still a bit tired. But on the bright side, that means we now have longer days with more sunny and clear evening skies! That’s just another sign that spring is getting closer and closer, and I could not be more happy about it. The weather here in Ohio has warmed up a little bit which is nice. However; it still gets pretty chilly every now and then, sometimes even snowy if we’re unlucky. Thankfully, I have a new OOTD that helps transition from winter to spring!
I bought this red turtleneck from Anthropologie last weekend during my trip to Chicago. The crazy thing is … the sweater was on sale for only $40! That’s a great deal since most of Anthropologie’s sweaters cost around $90 dollars or more. I say take the opportunity while you can, and that’s exactly what I did! At first when I saw it, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. But as soon as I tried it on, I fell in love. There’s so many reasons why I love it: it’s red (my favorite color), it’s a turtleneck (duh), it’s cozy (everything I wear has to be cozy), the ruffles add an aesthetic touch (I love anything with an aesthetic touch), etc. etc. I also happened to have on the same gold Francesca’s layered necklace that I’m wearing in these pics while trying on the sweater, and it made it look even more chic! The woman helping me at the store asked if I was Italian because she said it looked like something a fashionable Italian girl would wear. It’s a good thing I’m a quarter of Italian! It was absolutely worth purchasing ❤️
I have a lot of options of pants and shoes in my wardrobe that I can pair with the sweater. Jeans or leggings, boots or flats (when it’s warm outside), you name it! For the blog post, I paired it with my favorite skinny jeans from American Eagle and my black high knee boots from Steve Madden. I thought the boots would especially look really good with it, making it a perfect outfit to wear in the autumn and winter. The jeans work perfectly because they not only match but they’re tight enough to make the boots easily fit. They both add much more chicness to the look!
I’m gonna be honest. Even though I’m really eager for spring to come and for the weather to warm up, I’m gonna be a little bummed when it gets too warm to wear cute cozy sweaters. So until it gets up to seventy degrees, I’m gonna enjoy bundling up in this turtleneck as well as all my other turtlenecks and sweaters as much as I can!
