Turtleneck + Dress = Love

Winter layering ideas // Hunting for Pink Flamingos

Last winter, I started to notice people wearing turtlenecks under their dresses, and I thought it was the most brilliant idea. I love wearing my dresses, but it just gets so cold in the winter.

To start, I went pretty matchy-matchy. The top of this dress is black, so the black turtleneck blends right in. And from a distance, you really can’t tell that it’s two pieces. I’ve also seen some people go bold with combos like a striped turtleneck and a green dress, but I’m not quite to that point yet. πŸ™‚

In reality, I’m still a pretty hesitant turtleneck wearer. I remember having a turtleneck sweater back in middle school, and I wore it about once a week. (So a lot.) But after I grew out of that, I didn’t own another turtleneck until last winter. And it still isn’t one of the first things I reach for when I’m getting dressed.

But I’ve seen lots of people looking very cute in turtlenecks, so I’m trying it out! Because I’m really not one to pass up an opportunity for warmth. Like the over-the-knee boots that cover every inch of leg my dress doesn’t reach.

Matt and I are headed to his parents’ house tomorrow for Thanksgiving, and we’re going to (attempt) to make homemade butter for the meal! Using a KitchenAid mixer, as demonstrated in The Great British Baking Show: Masterclass.

I think there’s a 50% chance it will work, but if it does, I’m going to feel like a very legitimate cook. And if it doesn’t work, I’m guessing the results will be hilariously bad. So really, it’s a no-loose situation. Probably. πŸ™‚

I hope your Thanksgivings are great — and that you don’t get caught in traffic! And as always, thanks for reading!
