Happy Friday! It’s the weekend and time to relax. Raegan and I are both headed to get new eyeglasses today so this is going to be kind of short. Be sure to read all the way down to see why we are going to get glasses!
Today on the blog I wanted to style a classic piece, a black turtleneck sweater. Showing different ways that I have been wearing it. We all have those classics that never go out of style and a black turtleneck is a Winter staple. Here’s how I styled mine with a pair of khaki pants and black knee-high riding boots. The pants can easily be swapped for denim or even white jeans or slacks for work. Add some heels or booties and you still have a great timeless look.
My turtleneck sweater is from Walmart by Time and Tru, it is under $12 here and several colors to choose from. I love to wear black and khaki together any time of the year, but I especially like pairing it with black knee-high boots. This would work well with beige or cognac boots as well. I first paired it with a black faux leather jacket, see it here, that has been a top favorite on the blog. The leather gives it a touch of chicness – is that even a word? LOL!
For a more casual look add a denim jacket to even an olive Moto Jacket for an outfit for every day and running errands. I added a pop of white in with a Sophia Convertible Backpack. I like this backpack since I can carry it like a satchel, wear it as a backpack, or snap the straps together and wear it on the shoulder or as a crossbody. Very functional for the busy mom! See it here. It also comes in black and a festive red! My denim jacket is by Lee Riders from Amazon here.
My pants are actually ankle pants that I got back in the Summer. Don’t forget that you can still wear these during the colder months, just wear tall boots! These are on sale for $14.94 at Steinmart right now. See them here. I added my olive lightweight vest from Old Navy and it is on sale right now also! Grab this up while ON is having their sale, see it here.
My black riding boots are at least 10 years old, but I found a few that are similar linked below. I really liked these Michael Kors boots on sale for $113, they were $225. I love the MK line!
I’m not sure if I told you girls the story behind the glasses or not – so if I did, here it goes again lol. As most of you know, Raegan has not been interested in driving at all, she’s 19 and cares less about having her DL. Out of the blue she said she wanted to get her permit and start practicing. I was ecstatic! Everything was going well, till the eye test. Bless her heart, she can’t hardly see out of her right eye and has NEVER once said anything over the years. I was in shock to say the least. How does this slide by a Mom??
So we both are having our eyes checked today and she is getting glasses or contacts. I mean…she can’t drive without getting them, that’s how bad her eyesight is. I’m still befuddled how this slipped by me…wait…how did it slip be HER???
