Weekend Inspiration: Striped Turtleneck

Happy Friday Ladies!  We’re headed into the craziest time of year. And as of today, I am three weeks away from baby #3, so my to-do list is even more than a typical December.

I’m starting to miss my old body.  Just yesterday I was thinking about how being pregnant leaves me in awe of how strong women are and how grateful I am for what my body can do.  It also makes me appreciate my non-pregnant body even more.  I’d like to be able to finish a sentence without running out of breath, I miss the feeling of accomplishment and endorphins after a sweaty workout, and my waistline – ugh, all I want is to put on a pair of skinny jeans.

So today’s weekend inspiration is what I would wear for day out with the kids, maybe picking up the tree, or looking at Christmas lights.

Weekend Inspiration: Striped Turtleneck

Turtleneck, $40  |  Boots, $150  |  Jeans, $65  |  Vest, $100  |  Bag, $30


How sweet is this outfit?  I love everything about it, including the price points of each item.  I ordered this striped turtleneck from J. Crew, so I have it ready to wear in January.  It feels very Audrey Hepburn. Pair it with skinny dark jeans and boots for the weekend or black ankle pants and loafers for a casual office outfit.  Right now, if you use code SNUGGLE, you get an additional 40% off. Cheers to J. Crew for offering sizes up to 3X.

This year many of us discovered Wit & Wisdom jeans.  They fit so well and are only $65.  If you want something better than Old Navy’s Rockstar Jeans, but less than Paige or AG, give these a try.  They are slimming, and there wash is pretty much perfect.  Available in missy and petite here and plus sizes here.

Looking for a casual pair of riding boots?  These Sam Edelman’s are gorgeous and $150.  They come in black and whiskey (above).  I always go for the brown option for boots like this.  They work as a sophisticated neutral that you can wear with anything, including black.  While you don’t have to be matchy-matchy this inexpensive crossbody bag works well with the whole look.  It’s especially nice to be hands free on a day out with the kids.

Finally, I found this cheerful red vest by Hunter that kicks these simple basics into casual holiday look.  Want to add a sccarf?  This seasonal plaid is under $30 and would bring all the elements of the outfit together.

Meg, a long-time supporter of yours, given how many crazy things you have done for me and rescued me from. I order so many things from your feed! Just wanted you to know you are THE BEST. — Laura (I suspect you remember everything, be kind when you tell the stories ?)... and great good luck with your new baby!

Another great outfit! Thank you!

Best of luck to you during the next month! Will you be taking time off of posting for your maternity leave?

Thanks Molly! We always take the week between Christmas and New Years off from posting. Right now the plan is to take a break from the 12/21 and come back with content on January 7th - but we'll see how that goes :) . I'll definitely be back by the 1/21 if not sooner.

Question: I love a vest, but it's cold out so I need a jacket too. Do you just wear the vest and put a jacket over it? Seems like I should be able to figure this out, but it perplexes me. Thanks!

Hi and yes! You can wear this specific vest under a jacket, if you click on the link they actually have it styled like that. You can't pull it off with all vest though, some are too puffy.
