If you have been reading my blog for a while, you already know that I mostly share how I wear a few good quality basics on repeat. This navy cashmere sweater is about three years old. I’ve worn it three times already this month.
Last week, I wore the sweater with white jeans and block-heeled loafers to have dinner with friends. I filled in the low neckline with a small silk scarf. The lip color above is Girl’s Night here.
On another recent cold morning, I wore the sweater over a white tank top and jeans to visit the grocery store. (Sorry, no picture of that.) Lighting makes all the difference, so some photos don’t turn out with enough detail to tell a story.
On Sunday, I wore the navy sweater casually with jeans for another visit to Antlers Bar, the oldest continuously serving bar in North Carolina. I’m holding a fifty-one-inch square scarf from my now closed shopping site. I always take a scarf, sweater, or jacket with me from mid-September through mid-May.
Antlers Bar opened its doors in 1932 and has served beer and liquor (more or less legally) since then. With the most recent renovation, Antlers Bar is a balance of modern amenities and rustic nuances. We love to see the amazing collection of local pet photographs spanning 15 years. Bistro Roca is the fine-dining part of the restaurant, but we enjoy the casual neighborhood ambiance of the bar area.
A bottle of Scarpetta Prosecco Brut (Vintage Sparkling Wine from Prosecco, Italy) and plates of favorite items to share makes for a lovely casual afternoon.
The house-made smokey pimento cheese and herbed Boursin cheese are delicious. The lobster roll on a delicate buttery bun is excellent.
The bread pudding changes daily, and the cheesecake for the day included fresh berries.
We enjoy visiting Blowing Rock, NC, and the surrounding area for the history, diversity, beauty, and cool weather.
Grandfather Mountain is 5,945 feet above sea level, so it often wears a cover of clouds or fog. Its earliest snowfall on record was on September 10, 1964.
I have several cashmere sweaters that I handwash and lay flat on a towel to dry. They get softer with each year. Similar items to those I showed you today are linked below: Jeans, here and here– Sweater – Scarves – Bags – Shoes – Boots – Sunglasses.
