Current Favorite Trend || Mock Turtleneck

mock turtleneck
The color of this sweater sold me and the fact that it was under $100. Once the sweater arrived and I tried it on I realized I loved the sleeves and the mock neck. I love turtlenecks but sometimes they fold weird or are too bulky and I get too hot and feel too restricted. A mock turtleneck is just right and that’s what I have my eye on now for this winter. I picked out a few other super cute ones below.

I’ll be wearing my favorite current trend, the mock turtleneck, to the Grizzlies game tonight.  I wouldn’t typically wear heels during the week but these are so comfortable I’m going for it! Black can also be tricky with kids, almost worse than white. Every little spit up, snot or smear shows up.

The Breakdown:
This whole outfit is surprisingly comfortable. A huge plus to wearing straight leg or wide leg jeans is how much more comfortable they are then skinny jeans, this pair in particular feel like sweatpants, so loose and soft. The booties I am wearing are sock booties and therefore also really comfortable. The fabric is stretchy, it’s almost like wearing a tennis shoe on a heel, haha. My lip color was borrowed from my photographer Kim, I felt like I needed a little color on my lips and I only had chapstick with me. Kim to the rescue! Lastly to be mentioned is my mock turtleneck. I love the color, the detailed sleeves, the softness, and the price point!

Currently Loving All Things Satin

Satin is not a material you would think is great for fall. Materials that come to mind during the cooler months are fleece, leather and flannel. When I received these adorable rich rust colored polkadot mule heels in a satin material I just knew they would be perfect for fall. I pictured wearing them with light blue boyfriend jeans and cream chunk knits or an all black outfit. What I didn’t expect to wear with these satin pumps is a satin (silk) tank. So much satin happening and I love it, I even added a satin(ish) blazer!

Lately, I have become really into satin cami’s, especially the ones with lace detailing. They come in basic black and white colors (check out this one for under $30!) but you can also find emerald, maroon and navy which are all perfect for fall and winter. I would wear these satin silk cami’s more often if they were more nursing friendly. If anyone finds a nursing frienly silk cami please let me know!

I definetly didn’t plan on wearing so much satin in one outfit but sometimes things go together when you least expect them. I got this satin tank last month to go under my yellow satin robe and now I want to wear it under everything! For this outfit, I had my shoes, jeans and tank and needed something eles on top. I tried on a few different style jackets and this satin jacket looked the best.
