I honestly don’t know how I survived before I bought this camel turtleneck. Seriously, how does anyone survive without this camel turtleneck? I really wish I’d bought two now, for that inevitable moment when I spill red wine, or blackcurrant juice or something on this one, and it’s ruined forever. I also wish I’d bought it in more colours. Like the pale pink, for instance. Or the light beige. Or, OMG, I’VE JUST NOTICED THERE IS A FOREST GREEN VERSION! And even although I already HAVE a forest green turtleneck, I SO want it now. In fact, I’m almost on the verge of doing that Obnoxious Fashion Blogger Thing, and declaring that I’m OMGOBSESSED. With a turtleneck.
(I’m not, though. If I actually WAS obsessed with a turtleneck, I’d have more problems to worry about than what colour to buy next…)
Still, I may not be obsessed, but this little sweater does seem to go with everything in my autumn/winter wardrobe, and has been in constant rotation since it arrived. In fact, although I’ve only had it for a few weeks, it’s already appeared on the blog twice now, and given that I’ve not been doing many outfit photos lately (Rasons: the rain, the dark, the lurgy, the fact that our lives are now consumed with DIY…), that’s really quite an achievement.
Speaking of things appearing on the blog before… back in the summer, I briefly started doing a “Now and Then” type feature in my outfit posts, where I was posting photos of other ways I’d worn the various items. I know a few people said they quite liked it, but unfortunately it was a bit time-consuming and fiddly to put together (and, let’s be honest, I also kept forgetting about it), so instead, I’ve started tagging each item in the post tags, which you can see right at the bottom of each post, just above the “share” buttons. If you click on those tags, it should take you to the various other posts featuring that particular item, just in case you happen to be curious, or to have a bit of time on your hands.
(Er, I don’t want to imply that it’s important to anyone to see even MORE photos of me, but, well, it’s there if you ever want to know how to wear a particular item in more-or-less the same way, every time. For instance, having just done the tags for this post, I see that I’ve also worn this particular skirt-and-shoes combo before, too: and you know what? I’ll probably do it again…)
