Work Style: Black Turtleneck

Celine medium box bag black
Nouvel Heritage white gold necklace
Louis Vuitton flats
black turtleneck
Giordano turtleneck (similar)
Chicwish wool tweed dress (c/o)
Louis Vuitton suede flats (similar)
Nouvel Heritage white gold necklace (c/o)
Céline medium Box bag (similar)

I'm in work clothes majority of the time, so I invest more in workwear. (If I'm not dressed professionally, I'm usually lounging in sweats.) I've owned this turtleneck for years, which shows how classic, versatile, and wearable it is. A thin black knit turtleneck is easy to layer, so you can transition sleeveless dresses, like the wool tweed dress I'm wearing, into fall/winter months.

I recently received this gorgeous white gold necklace from Nouvel Heritage - it's delicate for daily wear and so understatedly luxe, with two diamonds in the clasp. I love that I could also personalize it with my initials. When it comes to jewelry, I like mixing metals so the look is not too uniform, but keep it to about two tones so everything is still pulled together.

It's So Fluffy!

Being enveloped in what resembles a warm fluffy cloud is my winter wardrobe strategy. All mohair err'thang, please. This look is comfortable and easy for weekends, but not too casual that I feel like a scrub.

Hello! I didn't mean to take an unofficial month-long hiatus from blogging and social media, but life during and after the holidays got so busy that it just happened. To quickly catch you up: Work is crazy busy, but it's fun and rewarding. I get home pretty late, and it's too dark outside to take outfit photos by then. Also, we've been remodeling our upstairs, so our weekends are consumed by chores, but it's coming along and exciting! Are you an adult when purchasing home decor > clothes?

Anyway, it finally let up raining this weekend after what seemed like months of downpour. I took a break from my usual weekend loungewear (sweatshirt tunic and tights) and celebrated this clear day with an outfit that looks like I sort of tried. I wore this tweed plaid skirt that has cute pink and burgundy stitching. It was even sunny enough to break out my new Ray-Ban sunglasses!

Red & Gold - Merry Christmas!

Wishing you all a very happy holiday! Husband and I celebrated the start of our winter break with a long dinner of steaks and red wine at Bateau, a French steakhouse newly opened in our neighborhood. We also hosted our annual friends' Christmas party, which is always a fun time. I wore a variation of the same outfit for both occasions - details below:

The holidays are the only times when I embrace color, especially red and gold, which are so festive. With this red dress, I wore a matte red lip and played with a fun gold glitter liner.

Have a very Merry Christmas!
