One of my favorite winter items to wear when it is cold out and I want to be toasty warm is a turtleneck. I know some people hate them, but I love how they make you feel all wrapped up and they are so comfortable since they are always some sort of stretchy material. I do have a couple that are wool, so they are a but itchy, but since I wear an undershirt of some sort under everything they never bother me. This particular turtleneck happens to be one of my all time favorites. My favorite color is and has always been orange, but when I was little I felt pressured to say it was pink so that I would appear girly enough, and then as I got older, I felt pressure to say that it was blue because I thought that people would think that orange was a weird color to have as a favorite color. But then high school came, and with it the courage to be myself - I got a bright orange backpack and carried it all through high school, college, for all my travelling as my carry-on, and to this day, whenever I use my bright orange backpack it always makes me smile cause I love it so much:)
So yeah, this turtleneck is also bright orange and since it's such a flashy color on top, I decided to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple and muted. I paired it with a flowy corduroy black skirt and black tights and wore my warm fuzzy Ugg boots. To top it all off, I layered two necklaces that showcase the great fall colors.

Are you also a big fan of turtlenecks? What are your fave winter wears??
