For some reason I will never forget the year I turned 10 and someone gave me a gift card to Nordstrom. I was so incredibly excited to go the mall and get to pick out my own outfit. I remember the specific outfit I picked out too. I chose leggings with small printed mice all over them, a matching turtleneck and sweatshirt with a giant mouse applique on the front. I wore that outfit and I thought I was so cool.
Naturally, time progressed and I no longer thought that outfit was the coolest thing I’d seen and turtlenecks (especially printed ones) became a thing of the past. I truly never thought I would wear a turtleneck again, but then I found this one from Madewell. It’s boxy which, as I’m sure you all know by now, is something I’m always a fan of. I have to say, my opinions about turtlenecks may have changed. There is just something so chic and unexpected about this turtleneck to me. Maybe I will even come around to matching turtleneck sets, just don’t hold me to it!
