The Best Oversized Turtleneck To Get You Through Winter
With winter being in full force, chilly weather has called for some SERIOUSLY cozy outfits. Lately (or actually always) I’ve been wearing oversized sweaters on repeat. Tunics, v-necks, turtlenecks, you name it! I go for that homeless chic look and still make it look cool. Right? Right. I recently got this FAB bright red turtleneck that I seriously can’t stop wearing and it’s seriously so warm, it’s crazy.
Ironically, I bought this sweater for my LA trip. Did I wear it? Yeah. Was I literally burning because it was actually too warm? Haha you betcha! Fortunately for me, I can wear this in Oregon and be comfortable AF! That’s the best thing about winters here, layers, layers and more layers. Actually the best thing about winter here is after it rains and the sun comes out and you get that crisp air feeling, the smell of wet concrete and the sun beaming through the trees. I live for moments like that.
I spent my weekend getting organized, hitting the gym ( I KNOW RIGHT who am I?) and having my first blogger brunch of the year (more of these to come). My friend Cherein and I have been dying to go to Excelsior for months already. We actually made reservations last year and then last minute changed our mind to go somewhere else that was new. Okay, I was probably more excited than she was until SHE GOT THERE. She was like ” OMG Jacqueline, we are no longer in Eugene!”. It seriously felt like we were in Paris, tucked away in a little cafe. The interior was amazing, it’s in oldie but a goodie. I loved the menu, I even want to go back for dinner! The cocktails looked delicious, the food was delicious and I hear the patio is amazing during the summer.
The greenery outside is literally MAGICAL. We had to take photos of our outfits post eggs Benedict and frittata. While I didn’t take any great photos of the food, as we spent most to our brunch catching up and talking about fun things coming up, I did gather this cute #OOTD that I figured you guys would love. While the coffee wasn’t my favorite, the company as always was great. We’re planning a trip to Portland together next month so stay tuned for that!
Okay as I mentioned it was cold. Even though I look like a giant marshmallow, I paired my oversized turtleneck with very western-inspired accessories. Scroll down to see this bold beauty!
