Turtleneck Knit

Intermix sweater, Frame jeans, Ted Baker coat, Prada boots, Proenza Shoulder bag

I blinked and Christmas was over, and now we’re moments away from 2017. I’m personally very excited about the New Year – I love a fresh start and the feeling of a new beginning.

When the world seems like it’s in such a tumultuous place it’s comforting to know that January never fails to arrive and there’s always an opportunity to make changes for the better. I have lots of exciting things planned this year for AFS, so stay tuned for a TON of new content!

I scooped up this turtleneck sweater at Intermix after spotting it in the window. I guess it’s more of a turtleneck “tank” – I feel like it’s pretty rare to find turtleneck sweaters without sleeves, and living in LA it’s the ideal “winter” piece for layering. It’s currently on sale so don’t miss out if you’re looking for a versatile piece. I paired with my beige wrap coat that I’ve had for two seasons now, which matches everything and always feels fresh.

These Prada boots are also from last winter, but this pair has a similar vibe. At the bottom of this post find more boots, turtleneck sweaters and neutral layering pieces.

What are your New Years plans and resolutions? I’m heading to the snow for a few more days of relaxing before getting back to work next week.

Also, congratulations to the winners of my giveaway, @bohofoxbabe, @hillary_benedict, @kellyabauer & @lmiller5020! I was so excited to draw the names and I read through every comment. I seriously wish I could gift every reader who commented! I’ll definitely be doing this again soon, (perhaps seasonally?) to give more people the opportunity to win. Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate!
