The Cashmere Shirt + Plaid Pants

Sometimes in life, things happen unexpectedly. Things that may knock the wind right out of you. But you gotta keep pushing through it all.

What is lovely never dies, but passes into other loveliness.

 

Outfit Details

Cashmere tops are so underrated and I can’t figure out why. Ok. I think I know why. Have you seen how much they retail for?! F$@*! The maintenance of cashmere also doesn’t help its case – DRY CLEAN ONLY. I have a friend I thrift with and every time she sees “DRY CLEAN ONLY” she puts it back on the rack. However, if the piece is worth it to me and if it’s in great condition, I don’t care.  I have thrifted several cashmere pieces and they are the absolute best. They’re super soft and super warm.

It was one of those super chilly mornings and I wanted to wear these wool plaid pants. I didn’t want to wear a sweater because I wanted the outfit to look more structured. In order to achieve that structured look I choose this black wool blazer and of course, in order to avoid the “bulky” look wore the cashmere top. Since I wanted to spruce up this outfit a little bit, I wore these leopard heels because you can wear leopard with anything.
