Camel Crush

Happy Hump Day! 

Remember when you were younger and thought the color brown was gross? Remember when it was THE biggest fashion faux pas to mix your browns with your blacks? And remember how much you insisted on only wearing bright colors (there may or may not have been an actual fight between my friends regarding who "owned the color pink"). 
I do.

Fast forward 20 some years and you can throw all of that out the window. In my closet browns, especially camel, run the show. And I will never stop paring them with black (neutral heaven). 

Camel is such a warm & buttery shade and looks amazing with all of your other basics (navy, ivory, black etc), but surprisingly it also works perfectly alongside the unexpected like a soft pink or pastel blue. The shoe is the basic & obvious place to start, but this season I am obsessed with the camel turtleneck sweater. 

I remember my mom literally could not pay me enough to happily wear a turtleneck. Maybe it was because it was part of my everyday school uniform, or maybe it was because I was scarred/mortified having to wear it under every Halloween costume until I was about 13 years old (I'm sorry but a starched white cotton turtleneck does not a little mermaid make).

Now however, I am addicted to the turtleneck and can't fill up my closet fast enough! My favorite right now is super affordable and can be found here…in camel. It has such a great fit and is not at all itchy. Some other great camel turtleneck finds are here here and here.
