The most beautiful and perfect in-between turtleneck without rolling to insert into your capsule wardrobe now and love for many years.
I MADE IT OUT OKAY!
First things first, I’ve sat down to brunch in this outfit and made it out as clean as I went in. Are you proud? Now, I’m only mildly likely to spill things, I’m much more likely to walk into something. Nevertheless, the fear of ruining any light coloured clothing is still very real. And on the opposite side of the table, my partner Mario is constantly spilling things and marking his clothing. So, this outfit will continue to be worn boldly, comfortably and safely across the table from him at all times.
Let’s deep dive into the nitty-gritty. Or, I will just get off topic and end up thinking about brunch, avocados, and coffee.
Damn, too late.
THE PERFECT IN-BETWEEN TURTLENECK (NO ROLLING REQUIRED)
Back on topic. In my attempt to find the best new season additions to my capsule wardrobe, I have found a gem. Mostly to replace an old faithful which sadly, lost its shape and pilled too much over time. This Everlane knit is the perfect in-between turtleneck that requires no rolling, folding or draping. It simply is just right. The turtleneck version of Everlane’s signature cropped square silhouette, it has that perfect in-between neck height.
Further to this, it comes in about nine colours, most of which are the perfect neutral addition to your capsule. And, it should be mentioned, it is also cashmere and one of the softest I have felt. If like me, you are curious about where your clothes are made, something I always appreciate about Everlane is how transparent they are. You can read all about their cashmere factory here. It certainly gives you a greater understanding of where, how and by whom your clothes are made. And, it is pretty nice to know and make some of those connections, particularly when you are shopping globally, rather than locally.
Everlane has a really impressive line of cashmere options too. From tees to vests, knits, cardigans and sweater dresses, the range is all beautiful.
WEAR IT WITH STRAIGHT LEG CROP PANTS
Last week on the blog (here) I shared a sneak peek of this outfit, and how else I have been wearing the Everlane straight-leg crop pants in recent weeks. Again, these are so comfortable I can’t even begin to tell you. And shoutouts to those of you who DM’d me on Instagram about how much you love yours too. I can see they are a best seller and well-loved by anyone who knows the brand.
Thus far I’ve only managed to style the turtleneck with these before it got too warm in the day. We have still had hot days (average 35 degrees Celsius or 95 Fahrenheit ) but the coolish mornings are a welcome change. In recent weeks I’ve been up at 6 am so I get at least three hours of cool weather before the sun starts to scorch. However, I’ve tried the turtleneck on with my silk slip skirts, high waist jeans, and boots and can’t wait to wear them together too. I even have a check print light coat ready to layer it under as well. I’ll be sure to share.

I’ve been aiming to share on my LIKETOKNOW.IT account twice or more daily with outfits, details and exclusive content to what I share on Instagram. Or, realistically get around to on here. Actually, I sometimes test out my photos on LIKETOKNOW.IT first and if I see people are into the outfit I will then share it on Instagram. The app is basically a shoppable version of Instagram where you can click on and directly shop the links to outfits and posts from your favourite bloggers. If you want to know more, I wrote a blog post all about it and how it works here. I bring it up again because it is just one of the easiest ways for me to share my fashion and beauty finds with you all quickly!
Enough for now, I’m still thinking about that coffee and maybe a cheeky avocado on a buckwheat crispbread snack.
