black turtleneck: gap
scarf: bought on the street in SF
jeans: j crew outlet
I hate to do an indoor shot (particularly because there is no good place in my house to take them), but the outdoors is a dangerous place to be today. There are winds gusting 35-55 mph, with icy roads and snow drifts. Out of a window on campus today, I spotted a giant, handicap-accessible port-a-potty getting dragged down the street by the wind. Yipes!
Given the horrendous weather, I turned to the most basic wardrobe staple for comfort: the black turtleneck. Mine is knit and ultra-soft and keeps me warm even while it looks streamlined. I paired it with a patterned scarf to give the look some interest and was forced to forego leopard print flats for sturdy clogs, given the situation out of doors.
Although it's simple, this outfit has classic colors, nice clean lines, and warmth without bulkiness. And if you haven't already, go check out my guest post at the glamorous grad student!
