I heart Turtlenecks


"The beauty of Fashion is that you get to express your individuality and inspiration without saying a word. It gives me a medium to freely express myself."

- Toyosi Osinowo

Though it has been winter for a while, it is barely getting cold in Texas. I did not get to shop much this season because I have been busy working on projects and school. Besides, I just felt like saving a little and splurging on other things. I was sure that I could get through the winter by making do with what I already had in my closet or spending very little and that is what I have managed to do so far.

One of my lifesavers have been Turtleneck sweaters!!!!! Yes! I never used to be a fan but they have officially won me over. I used to think that they made folks look old and 'plain Jane' like (oops), but I guess a trial convinced me. Below, are a few pics of how I have been implementing them into my outfits.

#1

I decided to wear this white turtleneck under one of the summer tops that my mom made for me along with another one of my lifesavers- my black culottes (love them). I sealed the look with some mustard pumps. I kept my makeup as natural as possible with nude lips. This allowed the attention to be on the main feature which was the turtleneck and colorful top. :-)

 

#2

For this outfit, I literally was improvising up until the last minute. LOL. I decided to pair my turtleneck with some black pants, an ivory vest and black pumps. I love that sparkle on the pumps added some holiday bling to the 'fit without being overbearing. Decided to put my hair in a simple ponytail, wear some emerald earrings and seal the deal with red lips :-)

Well, that's all for now folks. I hope you are inspired. Remember, do not be afraid to try new things. Dare to be different and creative. Something beautiful is waiting to be created by YOU. Go for it. You can do it.

XOXO,

Toyosi.
