Turtle neck so high you can’t see your haters


There is something particularly elegant about high roll neck jumpers. I wore a black one to my trip to Paris but the one problem is that they tend to be quite thin, so not ideal for when one actually needs to wear a jumper. This is why I love my thick, wool and cashmere stripped turtle neck from French Connection so much. It is warm, comfortable and feels so soft, but is fitted and elegant in style. The colors were particularly special and quite unusual, baby blue and pinky orange and I really like the floppy yet high neck. I don’t know if you get this, but sometimes when I leave my house (especially after having been studying and festering for days in my room), it feels almost harsh stepping outside into the cold hard glare of the world. It is normally then, when I just want to recluse that I end up popping out to buy some milk and end up meeting half the people I am friends with on Facebook. Damn! This outfit is my answer to that: there is something quite protective about a high neck and when warn with sunglasses. Firstly, you can pass somewhat unnoticed, but also there is comfort in a large scarf or a high roll top into which I can just bury my face to ward off the cold wind.

Here I have warn it with my baby blue jeans and leather sneakers. Let me know what you think about the jumper and if you have any tips on what to wear when you just want to snuggle but can’t because of some annoying friend who keeps harassing you to go for coffee or just simply because if you don’t go to the shop you will have to end up eating the cat :/

I am an ex-professional tennis player and have just graduated from King's College in London. I share daily fashion outfits and stories of my travels and the tour. Every story has a beginning, but I will start mine here, at the start of something big. For us this was a journey of a lifetime, where dreams were made and broken, where friendships were cherished and torn apart. We lived and still live the life of aspiration and we tell the tale of victories and defeats that come with growing up at such a young age on the brink of greatness and fame. In our world youth, beauty and riches combine. We trained hard but played even harder. Our parties’ were and always will be legendary, our travels exotic and carefree. We were becoming stars. My Girls On Tour showcases street style looks, avant-garde fashion, new designers, fashion shows as well as travel stories and adventures. A fun window into the glamorous world of a professional tennis player turned fashionista, this is the place for wonderlust and fashion inspiration.
