Happy Happy Friday!!  Oh why do short weeks always feel the longest?!?!  After a busy weekend and work week, I am ready for a pretty chill and relaxing weekend to close out January.  I have no plans as of right now, and I’m really excited about that. I will probably end up catching up on a few things around the house.

Back in November, I headed to my first Texas A&M football game.  I mentioned it when I shared my red puffer coat a week or so ago.  This maroon sweater was the other item I wore to the game.  My original plan was a lightweight sweater based on the weather predictions. When the forecast changed to colder game time temps, I decided to add the coat to the mix.

Turtleneck sweaters are hit or miss for me.  I don’t want to them to feel too tight around the neck.  These mock neck style tops are a great alternative for the look without worrying about too tight a feel around the neck.  The mock neck style in a solid color is a great basic wardrobe staple add to your closet.  You can make it work both casually and professionally.  A lightweight version can also be layered under cardigans, vests, and jackets.

I picked my sweater up from Nordstrom Rack, and I noticed it was low in stock.  I found a few similar ones HERE and HERE in case you like the look.

    The maroon shade is lovely! I do like jumpers in colours like that – burgundy and rust are my faves too. They all look good with black jeans. I love turtle necks but not when they make them too high up to the chin!

    I am the same way about turtlenecks which is why I don’t have a single on in my closet right now.

    I have the same thing with turtle necks. o) I don’t like them to tide around my neck either. Your sweater is lovely, and I love the color. I hope that you enjoyed the game. Thank you for sharing your style with My Red Carpet.

  6. Karen, I love this color on you. And your boots are so beautiful, too. Such a great outfit! And I think short weeks feel longer because we expect them to feel shorter. So we essentially set ourselves up for failure, in a way, by setting our expectations too high on short weeks! But I also think that only happens when it is Monday that is the holiday. If the week is short because we have a Friday holiday, I don’t think the same thing happens. I know that was kind of a random rant, but there you have it! Thanks for linking up!
