Oversized Sweater + Turtleneck Layers & a Giveaway!

- Fashion, Outfits

winter style, double layers for cold weather

I cannot express to you how much I LOVE this watch. Maybe it has something to do with the fact it is one of Wristology’s¬†Rachel watches, I mean, how is it I don’t own ALL of the Rachel watches yet? ūüôā¬†¬†I love the rose gold paired with aqua blue, it is chic and gives a nice touch of color while still being professional enough for me to wear to my office!¬†Wristology has a vast selection of gorgeous watches for an affordable price – and if you don’t know what to get your mom, sister or best girlfriend for Christmas – I would say you can’t go wrong with ANY of these styles. Or better yet, add one to your Christmas wish list. And the best news is that I’ve teamed up with Wristology to give away one of their beautiful watches!

Now onto my layers – this past Sunday it got really cold in Minneapolis, (I’m talking¬†-7 with windchill), so I layered up with my favorite oversized sweater and a striped turtleneck that I thrifted recently. I’ve seen a few other bloggers do a similar layering style, recently I’ve been inspired by¬†Caitiln’s¬†cute, casual styles (she layers a few other looks too with the striped turtleneck) and of course, inspired by the lovely¬†Blair.

I’ve layered with¬†other striped¬†turtleneck in the past with a dress¬†and a jean vest,¬†but never with another sweater. I think this look is going to happen a few more times this winter! Next time the temperature decides to be¬†negative (oh wait, this is always as of lately), I’ll be sure to add a faux fur or puffer vest.

    I wish I could look half as stylish as you in the bitter cold! ūüėČ Being a native Californian, I have absolutely no experience in dressing for the winter, so living in NYC has forced me to get creative with my layers. Especially love how you layered the turtleneck over the striped top; it’s such a genius idea! And your Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac is just too gorgeous! I’m completely obsessed with mine and probably wear it way too much!

      Oh I’m sure you look super chic in the cold! And ME TOO GIRL! I use it on the weekends because it is the perfect size. I hate carrying around a big handbag anymore when I’m going out with people or grabbing drinks! But yeah, it will be in another outfit post this week because I used it over the whole weekend – whoops!

    This is the perfect oversized sweater! I can never seem to find one that is long but not too large. I like that is one is still fitted. You look beautiful! Fun watch.

    Love this look on you Rachel (great name by the way ;), I am in need of a good oversize sweater, but one item to buy at a time I guess. I follow you on instagram (garaytreasures), but I believe we are both in the “Bloggers Collective” group so I wanted to drop by and check out your blog and say hey.
