Ugh, are they air conditioning in here?!

They are installing a new heating/cooling system here, and I need the leather jackets for *inside* my office.  Yup.  I figured the scarf would help too, and now that it's finally cool enough it gave me a chance to wear this fabulous new scarf.  One of my colleagues gave this to me as a gift!  Isn't it a nice gift? 

The sweater is one of my few 100% cashmere sweaters, and it's so soft and cozy.  As of a few years ago, most of the high-end department stores would have huge selections of cashmere sweaters that are not too expensive, and they all went on sale between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm guessing this is still true. I recommend going early in the season, but on a weekday, so that you have lots of selection but it isn't too crazy and you can try things on.

(Sweater: from Bloomingdales, scarf: Missoni, Pants: Express, Shoes: Bandolino from DSW from a while back, jacket: Wilson's leather, also from a while back)


  1. I love the look with the jacket. At first, I was like "you look like you rode to work on a motorcycle!" Then I realized that wasn't right.

    You look like you rode to work on a vespa!

  2. I'm trying to do scarfs myself now. I have two, and one is a regular scarf and I can't figure out how to wrap it for the life of me (this means I haven't had a chance to watch youtube videos). The other is an infinity scarf I bought 8 days ago (in DC).

    I do like your look. It is very tough but professional.

    I just can't wear cashmere sweaters anymore. They get destroyed. By me, by lint, by kids, by lifting imaging systems.... maybe someday.
