Some items are so versatile and comfortable that I reach for them repeatedly. The combination of a cashmere V-neck sweater and a soft pair of jeans has been one of my favorites for the past few winters. The look is a simple and comfortable base that can be dressed up or down.
Working on my taxes has taken most of my time recently. The weather has also been extra gloomy, so I’ve rarely left the house for days. Thankfully, as I write this, the sun is shining today, and the temperature is 49°F.
I completed my part of the tax preparations at 5 am, so I took the package to my accountant later in the day. The sweater and jeans with a royal blue quilted jacket served me well. The coat is from Chico’s a couple of years ago.
I wore the same base with my trench coat and a suede fedora earlier this week while it was raining. My facial appointment had to be rescheduled, so I only wore the look for about half an hour. The pieces were still on the rolling rack since I always air out garments before putting them away. When I wear something for only an hour or two, I don’t launder it.
The black jeans are here. I’m wearing a size 28 regular. The cropped cashmere sweater is here. I am wearing a size medium. The trench coat is here. I wanted it to be oversized, so I ordered an extra-large size. (Their coats and jackets run small.) A similar fedora is here. Mine is about four years old. I nearly always wear a hat whenever there is rain or snow. The short boots are also not new. Similar boots are here. My earrings are here. The watch is here. The Staud black clutch is old as well. Here and here are similar bags.
I don’t shop or blog often anymore since I’m mostly retired, but when I share a post, the shopping links may allow me to earn a small commission without cost to you.
