Cashmere Forever!

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!

Cashmere

Last fall, I purchased my very first cashmere sweater from Ann Taylor




I must have had a bad experience with itchy sweaters in my earlier days because I have never felt the need to own a cashmere sweater.




Now that I have worn this elegant fabric, 
I must have more! It is warm but not bulky and oh so soft. It isn't itchy at all. I will be able to wear this one for three seasons so it is well worth the investment.




The black jeggings are old from Chico's. Both the ombre scarf and the suede and reptile texture boots are by Vince Camuto.
