Transitional Turtle Neck








It is kind of crazy how things change over time, especially how we feel about certain topics and what we find important enough to spend our time on. Lately, I have noticed a serious shift in my thoughts and priorities and I seem to be surprising myself. I have become much more laid back in the sense of people having their own opinions and views on things and it's rather freeing. I used to get frustrated when people wouldn't at least let me say my piece on whatever it is they were talking about, but I have adopted a much more open frame of mind. I am much happier hearing them out, nodding my head and walking away thinking "that's an interesting point of view," rather than tirelessly trying to prove my point. Certain people definitely still bring out my argumentative side, but I am working on that. One of my favorite authors, Lysa TerKeurst, once wrote, "There's this beautiful thing called imperfect progress, slow steps of progress wrapped in grace."  That quote pretty much sums it up for me. I try to keep the goal of having imperfect progress on all things in life in the forefront of my mind. At the end of the day none of us are perfect and progress is still progress. 

This dress is great for transitioning into fall and even winter. It is so versatile having no sleeves but a turtleneck. I have it paired here with a chunky cardigan, but it could easily be paired with a full-on sweater and even some nylons as we move into winter. The slight a-line cut is very flattering and the material is a nice, thick quality cotton blend. I will definitely be featuring it again. This cardigan is so cozy! I love how chunky it is and the slight waterfall front makes it easy to throw on with just about anything. The last third of the sleeves are fitted which keeps it from sliding down or becoming a nuisance. I have both paired here with the black booties I have been wearing religiously. 

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week! Thanks for stopping by!
