A cashmere wrap is a lovely alternative to wearing a bulky coat. They are easy to slip off while seated in a car and never as constricting as a coat. You can also layer them over a coat for extra warmth. I’ve long been attracted to the elegance and flexibility of large silk twill scarves, cashmere wraps, and ruanas.
I enjoy a touch of animal print but limit myself to one element per look. I only purchase animal prints with little to no gold in the design, and I don’t wear the items near my face since they rarely flatter a cool skin tone.
My jeans, cashmere wrap, and turtleneck sweater are from Talbots. The leather-trimmed jacket is about five years old from Helmut Lang. The animal print loafers are by Jeffrey Campbell from last year. The bag is by Dooney & Bourke.
For the past few years, I’ve only invested in clothing and accessories for long-term wear, emphasizing quality and versatility. As is usually the case, none of the items I’m showing you are trendy or new, so I’ll link to similar current items.
We were on our way to the grocery store and picking up take-out food for our Friday date-night meal in my breakfast nook when we took these photos.
We often take outfit photos on the VA’s deserted campus because of the wide-open spaces, landmark buildings, and the landscape’s natural beauty. That’s why I am not wearing a mask in the photos. There are no people around for several blocks.
The gray skies rewarded us with a winter wonderland after a light snowfall on the following morning.
Now that I am mostly retired, I share posts randomly. You can look back at almost 800 posts on my Fifty, not Frumpy blog here. I use myself as an example to freely share all the things I’ve learned during my style journey. There are nearly 700 posts here on Susan After 60.
