Winter Favorites.


Blazer: J.Crew Regent Blazer (Warm Camel).
Rings: Aldo (Gold).

An outfit wearing my favorite things as of late and a brief comment about this Equipment Cashmere sweater. I am always apprehensive about buying expensive cashmere. Cashmere isn't what it used to be, and you could be shelling out a lot of $$ for not so great cashmere. I have read tons of reviews on Equipment cashmere, but I wasn't totally convinced about the quality. I found this particular Sloane crewneck sweater at Nordstrom's for approximately $100, which I didn't think was too bad if the quality wasn't all there. Overall, it is soft, and the fit is a bit oversized on my petite frame, but I am finding that it pills...even before it has been washed. It's not horrible pilling, but pilling nonetheless. I am happy I didn't pay full price for it, but I continue the hunt for a great quality cashmere sweater. On the other hand, I love the color contrast between this merlot-colored sweater and the camel blazer!

Thoughts.

Top: J.Crew Keeper Chambray Shirt (Afternoon Sky).
Boots: Alexander Wang Gabi Booties (Black w/ Rhodium)(almost OOS but can find them here).
Rings: Topshop (Gold).

     Can you believe we are approaching the end of 2014?! It seems rather surreal and I think I need some time to reflect on what I have / haven't done this past year. I think I may be getting to a phase in my life where it's starting to really become important to me as to whether I have achieved the goals I had set out for myself when I was younger. Of course, I have to accept that we don't all follow the "standard" path that our culture may have set out for us, and well , to put it bluntly, sh!t happens and things always don't go as planned. However, I am also not content with sitting around (whether intentionally or not) while the world passes me by. Anyone else feel this way this time of year?
