Can you imagine? All these years, I thought cashmere was itchy!
I obviously owned something with too much wool in it in my youth because I have long held the belief that cashmere worn next to my skin would itch. Last year I bought a sweater that changed all that! Now I am a big fan of all things cashmere.
I adore this tunic I got from J.Jill recently. It can be dressed up or down and worn with jeans or leggings or with a black skirt, tights and boots. It is so soft and not at all itchy! I have already worn it a couple of times.
I wore it for the first time to the social hour at the Innisfree B&B last Friday with black jeans and boots. It was the perfect low-key casual elegant piece for the informal gathering with the other guests.
Wearing a variety of subtle textures has always appealed to me. I like the idea of wearing a mink scarf with this tunic along with animal print booties to a holiday party.
I could remove the scarf and wear animal print flats for a similar but less dressy option. The wide gold cuff with faux pearls from Chico's is the perfect accessory for an elegant finishing touch.
I have several pieces of cashmere from J.Jill and there are others I have my eye on. I am so glad I gave cashmere another try!
