Do you too think high necks are turtley awesome? Then welcome to this week’s ode to those of us with a permanently chilly neck. Or weird repressed choking fantasies. Wait. What? I think 50 Shades of Grey has seeped through the collective consciousness with the help of THAT Ellie Goulding song playing on an endless loop.

 I am not one to keep my neurosis all to myself so here are a couple of examples of how  you can start rocking the turtleneck trend.

Is it a trend?

It should be a trend.

I mean, all power to the confident ladies and their lovely V-necklines, but I favor more leg and less chest. But we should all try something different every now and again. Let me know if you give it a try!

Also, if you couldn’t tell so far, I’m currently loving wearing slip-on shoes or just flats in general to bring down the fussiness of a look. I know the whole spiel about the aesthetic benefits of heels and, while I love rocking a pair on occasion, I have generally come to embrace my non-Giselle proportions by looking at the different cuts and lengths in clothes to compensate for the lack of height in the shoe department.
