As someone who grew up in the Philippines, finding an outfit for the winter has always been a challenge.
Luckily, this year, I found my go-to sweater.
I'm not a fan of turtle necks. I feel like I'm choking whenever I wear one.
I was at an Express store one January afternoon, returning a few Christmas presents, when I bumped into this cable knit cowl turtle neck sweater. The fabric felt good to my skin and the cowl turtle neck was loose enough that I didn't feel I was suffocating.
On the Express website, the sweater just sits right on the waistline. I like my sweaters longer so even though I usually wear XS/Small I decided to get a Medium, and it was just perfect.
I wear a fitted short-sleeve t-shirt underneath, and match it with black leggings or fitted grey pants.
The sweater is so comfortable; I wear it at least once a week. My hubby also gave it his seal of approval.
So, what's your favorite winter essential?
