Lou & Grey Soft Striped Turtleneck

I can’t even remember the last time I wore a turtleneck. Maybe 2004? If you’ve never worn Lou & Grey before, you’re missing out. Not only is it super affordable, the fabrics are always super soft. Same goes for this turtleneck…which is why I thought I would give it a try. I’ve seen so many people wearing them tucked in, so why the heck not?! I paired it with these Democracy jeans, which I received in one of my latest Stitch Fixes. They are so stretchy and the perfect length for me where I didn’t even have to hem them.

Oh, and The Loft typically will carry some Lou & Grey pieces that are included in their 40% off sales they have ALL the time. I’ve scored so many pieces at ridiculously good deals.

And I’ve never been afraid of a bright lip. Like ever. If you want a matte lipstick that stays on FOREVER, pick up Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick. I’m not joking. This will stay on ALL day and you’ll even have remnants the next morning. It goes on like a gloss, but then dries matte in probably 30 seconds. Highly recommend!

Wow, you know you haven’t blogged in a long time when you still aren’t logged into WordPress 🙂 It’s been a while, but life has been busy and I’ve enjoyed spending so much time with my family – and of course the occasional shopping trip!

One of my great friends loves vests. I mean loves them…we call it part of her uniform. And she’s started rubbing off on me. They are so great to have when it’s not too cold enough to have a coat but not quite warm enough just to have a shirt on. I snatched up this Loft Puffer Vest a few weeks ago when they were having 70% off online. Uh, yes please! Couldn’t resist the soft pink color. Typically I size down at the Loft, but I ordered a medium to make sure it was roomy enough to have a shirt or sweater underneath. It fits great – and is the softest fabric. Highly recommend.

I’ve also started quite the collection of fashionable sneakers. I follow Loverly Grey on Instagram. She’s the cutest thing and a native Atlanta suburb girl. She had these adidas Edge Luxe shoe on and was raving about them, so I decided to give them a try. SO glad I did. They really are super comfortable. And can we talk about the laces for a second? Too cute. When I wore them to work, I think I got about 10 compliments on them. (Can I mention I love an office where I can wear this cute outfit?!)
