WIWW: Olive Green Vest & Blanket Scarf + Link Up

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Does this post even need words? I mean come on...this scarf, this vest. Does it get any more "this is my winter go-to look" than this? This vest does come with a removable fur hood, but I thought that was a little much for church. 

Speaking of church...we were standing there worshiping on Sunday when all of a sudden the teenage boy in front of us collapsed. I instantly starting shoving my sister-in-law towards the scene (she is an RN) being that she deals with this kind of stuff on a daily basis. This teacher, on the other hand, was relieved to know the boy just got too hot and had most likely locked his knees and fainted. Whew! I will admit that it was extremely hot. Texans think that, because it is 20 outside, we need to make it 80 inside. Wrong

Anyways, back to the scarf and vest. I already ordered two more of these scarves for Christmas presents and I have another vest on order for my SIL (she already knows, so I'm not ruining the surprise). These Old Navy vests (like the one I posted about yesterday!) are just too good to pass up.

Lastly, can we talk about this turtleneck? I wore the same one in burgundy yesterday, and I'm sure the striped one I bought will be making an appearance soon. These are THE BEST and most comfortable long-sleeved shirts I have ever worn. They are stretchy and so soft. I have worn all of them twice and I've only had them for eight days. And here is another secret....they didn't have my size in the burgundy and striped, so I ended up getting a large because I wanted them so bad. So, I have one small and two larges and I love how all of them fit. I am most likely going to order the red striped one here pretty soon. They're amazing. The grey is a small and the burgundy from yesterday's post is a large. You can slightly tell the size difference, but it doesn't matter to me!
