Mock Turtleneck Sweater

Just when I thought the weather was getting sunny and warm, it decided to rain this weekend here in Austin (rolls eyes 😐 ). I wanted to dress casual to run some errands, and my go-to sweater for this kind of weather is this mock turtleneck, which is quite shapeless but sooo comfy. You know those weeks when you’ve had one too many Baklavas that your Lebanese colleague brought to work and feel pretty bloated? Yeah, that was me this weekend, but this sweater hides all sins, I promise 😉

I paired it with my black skinnies that are pretty much grey now from being worn so often! I don’t mind how distressed it looks though. And in keeping with the theme of well worn pieces, these were my first ever pair of boots, and they have stood the test of time. They are the perfect pair for everyday, and I wore them to death when I was in school. For extra warmth, I added my Topshop leather jacket.

Also – be on the lookout for my next post as I’m super excited to be flying to a different country at the end of this week, and can’t wait to share my first travel blog post! I hope you are enjoying my content so far. Please let me know in the comments if you have any feedback on how I can improve, I’d love to know 🙂
