Happy Friday ladies. Today’s ootd of the day is one I will be wearing on repeat all winter. This time of year, my preferred outfit is a cashmere sweater and comfy jeans but I’m burned out on jeans so I’m looking for other options. This gray and ivory casual outfit is as comfy as sweats but elevated enough to take you to a holiday party.
You can spend a fortune on cashmere, and you can also buy it at a reasonable price. Quality varies and you often just get what you pay for. Then you can get a surprise! I ordered this ivory V-neck from a new-to-me brand on a whim, and I’m hooked! This is a $50 cashmere sweater that’s much softer than my $100 Everlane sweaters. I’m wearing a medium.
Quince makes high-quality essentials, cuts out all the middlemen, and sells factory-direct so the prices are insanely good. They make lots of other products and tons of cashmere which I will be stocking up on. They also have free shipping and free returns so it’s hard to go wrong!
MORE QUINCE CASHMERE
I spotted these comfy pants on the J. Jill website and knew they would be great. Machine wash, elastic waistband, and pockets…say no more! Comfy from the get-go. The Wearever Collection are elevated everyday essentials grounded in knits. I love that they simply pull-on, and are softly tailored with a wider leg that drapes gracefully.
The fabric is a substantial knit with 6% spandex so they won’t bag out. They describe it as french terry, but I always think of athletic wear with terry and these aren’t that. The stitched center seam adds some visual structure without taking away from its flowy nature.
The leopard print scarf is a silk/cashmere blend and comes in a set with cashmere fingerless gloves. They’re from Black, which makes classic and contemporary, elegant and understated, pieces for your wardrobe. BTW, their Black Friday sale is on with 20 % off sitewide. I love fingerless gloves because I can still operate my phone while keeping my hands warm.
Add a pair of super comfy velvet flats and this soft gray and cream outfit would take you to a holiday party or shopping in comfort. I love my Birdies and now have them in two colors. They run wide so if you have a narrow foot they might not be a good fit for you.
I’ve always had a soft spot for charcoal gray and love it paired with both soft and strong colors. Picture these with a red sweater or soft pink, yellow, or pale blue…the options are endless. It’s a great alternative to black and just as versatile.
I love wide-leg pants for the flowy feeling and the balance they give my broad shoulders. Make them in a neutral like charcoal heather gray and I am one happy gal. These are a small petite, and they also come in misses and womens.
Do you wear knit pants?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
