I Feel Pretty | in Cashmere

Like many of you, we got hit by a big ice storm late last week.  The kids were off school for two days and our son’s football playoff game got postponed.  The entire Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex shut down.

But I didn’t really mind.  We stayed in, stayed warm and caught up on all of our favorite Christmas movies – like Christmas Vacation, The Grinch and Elf.  I also watched more than my share of cheesy Lifetime movies.  I watch more Lifetime in the month of December than the rest of the year combined.

We did manage to get out over the weekend for a photo shoot for our Christmas cards and to take blog photos.  Yes, that’s a sheet of ice I’m standing on!
Cashmere Sweater Leggings Purse Full This kind of weather calls for my favorite outfit combo – a cozy sweater, scarf, leggings and riding boots.  I’ve been living in this comfy cashmere Loose and Easy Vee sweater from Subtle Luxury.  The cashmere is so soft and luxurious.  It has an asymmetrical hemline and drapes beautifully.

Subtle Luxury features 100% California cashmere pieces that are worn and loved by celebrities like Jessica Alba, Charlize Theron and Alessandra Ambrosio.

Cashmere Sweater Sydney This oversized fringe scarf is also from Subtle Luxury.  It can be worn as an infinity loop (as shown) or a traditional scarf.  I love it’s size, softness and versatility.

Cashmere Sweater Scarf This outfit gets a festive pop of red courtesy of my new Sydney Shopper in cranberry from Fossil.

    I am all about Cozy Sweaters lately. I am loving them big and loose, and slightly long, like yours. I purchased 2 Gorgeous ones yesterday. I love yours. I am in love with the Scarf & Red Bag though. You look Casually Elegant as usual.

    Speaking of Cozy Sweaters – I linked one today. Check it out! Happy Wednesday, Ada. =)

  • I need to learn how to so casual chic like you. You look beautiful in the fringe scarf. Love the colors!

  • So pretty! Love the pop of red in the handbag. Entered!
