Dressed For The Weather

Last evening we attended a surprise birthday party for a dear friend which was held at a nice restaurant. 

It is raining and cold so that calls for dressing in warmer layers. I am wearing a wool Carlisle jacket which is quite a few years old. The straight leg black pants, as well as the necklace, are old from Chico's. Due to the rain I also wore my oldest pair of Nine West booties from a few years ago.

I always believed that I should not wear a turtleneck because of my round face. I bought this one online when it went on sale at Chico's recently because I have two sweater coats that should be worn with a turtleneck due to their keyhole necklines. I am so glad I did! They are so warm and I don't mind the way they look with an open jacket or a necklace.

Have you proven yourself wrong on something you didn't think you could wear but found you really liked it once you tried it on?
