Let us talk about how specific items can become more than my brain can handle. I've wanted a gray sweater for a while. After buying the G.H. Bass one in two colors I was positive that I couldn't justify another turtleneck. I had the star one right? That should be enough.

And yet, despite all the mental gymnastics, I couldn't stop wanting one. There's something about a long sleeved turtleneck that I just love, and after finally trying on everything I could find this month I came back to this one. On sale, the wrong size, but a piece I'd seriously contemplated at the beginning of the season. Thankfully the closet gods were smiling down on me, because this fit and it's super warm, and will easily serve me for years (especially as I've already been playing with layering it over some of my longer button downs). 

So there you go. No matter how many closet resolutions I try to make, or minimalist mantras I repeat to myself, sometimes I just need 3 long-sleeve turtleneck sweaters.

 Wrap: Modcloth (similar here) ~ Sweater: Anthropologie* (similar here and here) ~ Leggings: Hue (same in dark blue) ~ Booties: Vince Camuto ~ Bag: T.J. Maxx ~ Sunglasses: Kate Spade

Fit Note: This sweater is currently sold out online (it went on sale a while ago) but I just bought this in-store so you may still be able to get your hands on it. It also runs bigger than even I had suspected and I'm wearing a size small here - other than a little lost length when I raise my arms, it fits perfectly. Weird but true.
