Outfit: The Black Turtle Neck

I think you get to a stage where you feel old, when fashions that you saw were on trend when you were younger make their way back round for the next generation. Now maybe I'm being daft because I'm only 24 (even though I look about 12) but seeing the Turtle Neck come back has certainly done that to me!

I've had a M&S voucher sat in my purse for a good few months, but because it's been hidden away in the inner pocket I'd completely forgotten about it. It's only when I was frantically searing round for some change for the bus, that the sparkly card caught my eye. And I thought what better way to spend it on, than this new winter warmie! 
As a kid I was always in turtle necks so I was a little unsure after my transition into adulthood wether I could still pull off the look. I had that little niggle in the back of my mind telling me as soon as I'd put it on I'd instantly look like a 5 year old... However... I feel super sophisticated wearing the turtle neck & think it works really well with my outfit today.
I've teamed my super slick turtle neck with my bargainous pair of black leather look trousers. I love the element of colour blocking, I think it's a real statement maker and one that's pretty easy to pull off - Which is always a bonus!
I've added tan accessories with my loafers, cross body bag & jewellery. I've had these loafers for such a long time now, but I very rarely wear them, because they squeek like crazy! If anyone has any tips for curing this very annoying, very embarrasing problem, I'd love to hear from you!... First world problems or what!

Thanks for stopping by. Lots of love.

  2. I know what you mean about returning fashion trends! I really love some of the chunky, oversized roll-neck knitwear around at the moment. I love your loafers; hope you find a squeak-free solution! :) xxx

    1. Haha thank you! They're absolutely ridiculous - Think I need to rip them apart and put them together again. Ha. X
