C is for Cashmere....(and cashmere is for me....)
It was definitely a day where I was thankful that I do work from home, as I was hanging out in a big cozy sweatshirt. And then tonight, I had a PTA chair dinner to attend, so cashmere was the only way to go. Out came last winter's dark slate cashmere turtleneck (yes, I was that chilly, size M btw) plus black Minnies (8T) and black Born Lovely flats, and a stack full of bracelets - crystal shapes, gold link, crystal supernova. It gave a little sparkle to the outfit. (Any sparkle will do. It's a great base outfit for pretty much any kind of accessorizing.)
Then some gold hoops and a ponytail and I was good to go. Anyone else read the Percy Jackson series? Yes, I am a 38-year-old woman and I like to read some juvenile fiction. I say it's just because of the kids... Anyway, in the 3rd or 4th book, where the author starts talking about the "Party Ponies"? Always makes me think of this hairdo. It's my party pony (in other words, my hair's been down all day and I need to do something different with it).
To recap the evening - lots of fun catching up with friends. And I stayed cozy the whole time. Success! I may have to pick up another one this season. I'm digging that heather cobblestone and heather saddle color. Sigh, I know, more neutrals. Maybe I need to swing over to the warm honey. We'll see. But it's late and I'm itching to crawl into my cozy bed. Good night!
