Ode to the turtleneck and a contest!

CONGRATULATIONS to "Jocelyn" for entering my contest and winning the INC Turtleneck!! Enjoy!

It took everything in me just to get out of bed this morning. Being on maternity leave has me turning into a lazy slob. I dropped something on the floor today, looked at it for like 10 seconds and made the executive decision not to pick it up. Getting bendy is work!

Anywayz, I was thinking about the topic for this blog post and it hit me--turtlenecks! I had been on the hunt for the perfect turtleneck and recently found it at H&M. I named her Betsy. Turtlenecks are so great for a multitude of reasons: they keep your neck warm, they look great on almost anyone, and they are a great layering piece. The one I have from H&M is super stretchy, is a true black (no fading in the wash or in the sun), and is extremely flattering. It was a steal at $12.95 and I wish I had purchased one in a neutral color as well. I only wish the "neck" part of the turtleneck was a bit longer.

Here are a few of my stylings with this venerable wardrobe staple. I apologize in advance for the less-than-clear photos. My Dad took his camera back (best believe I violently shook my fist at him when he did) and I had to use my webcam to take these pics.
