I’ve written a little bit about mindful purchasing on the blog before, but I’d like to revisit it. For every purchase I make, I ask myself 1) does this fit with the rest of my wardrobe? (color, style, etc.) and 2) will I actually wear this piece of clothing on a regular basis? Now, there are caveats to these questions…for example, formal wear is very hard to wear again. But, I am trying as I explained here.
So that’s it…Be mindful. Before every purchase, think about how this piece of clothing will REALLY work in your wardrobe rather than mindlessly clicking “Confirm Purchase” (which, don’t get me wrong, I’ve done a lot of in the past!).
So this brings me to this turtleneck, which is a resounding YES on both of these questions. I grab it over and over again. It goes with everything. It’s sort of a chameleon in my wardrobe as it can blend with dozens of different outfits. It compliments a standout pair of red jeans with leopard flats or a flowy midi skirt or it can be worn alone…
I know, I know, it’s just a cashmere black turtleneck. Boooring…but no. It’s soft, and perfect for cold winter days. (Note: It is a little itchy on warmer days…) And since it’s from Everlane, a company committed to responsible sourcing and transparency at a reasonable price, I can feel good about my purchase.
When I look back at the clothing purchases I’ve made this fall, this is the standout…the one that makes me the most happy. Yep, yep, nerd alert over here because I’m in love with a black turtleneck. Oh! I just got another outfit idea…tortoise shell glasses with the black turtleneck would be SO CHIC [says Jamie with a Steve Urkell snort].
ANYWAY, what is your favorite piece from your fall wardrobe? I’ve been eyeing this turtleneck in the dress version. If anyone has any sweater dress recommendations I’m all ears…
