I got this sleeveless turtleneck a few years ago and while I don’t wear it often, I do love it on the perfect occasion. I’m not a big turtleneck fan is part of my issue. It has to be quite chilly for me to opt for the neck-covering layer. What I also don’t love is bulky layers, so while my sweater keeps me warm, the lack of sleeves makes this easy turtleneck and blazer ensemble great for life on the go – indoors and out.
Turtleneck + Blazer Outfit
Besides my finicky nature on the turtleneck front, I actually really don’t like light blue – on anything! Why I picked this piece out those few years ago (in St. Louis if I recall correctly) and why I still love it are kind of beyond me, but I’ll take the change of pace! My blazer (more details below) actually doesn’t have blue in it, but I think the pale blue matches the browns and blacks nicely!
The Plaid Blazer
You all have been commenting on this blazer whenever I’ve shared it on here and Instagram. The exact pattern isn’t available anymore, but Nordstrom is still selling the same style (elbow patches and all)! I went home last weekend to discover my mom ordered it for herself after loving mine so much (and seeing how much wear I get out of it)! I’ll be sure to share all my favorite ways to wear it soon, but just know it’s an absolute keeper!
A note on the sizing. I’m wearing a size up from normal in mine. I certainly have broad shoulders, but it’s worth sharing that if you want some room for layering or have bigger shoulders (or all of the above in my case), then you might want to try a size up as well!
