How to Pack for a Long Weekend: Navy and Camel

A classic cabled cardigan is always a good starting-point for this travel outfit.  After I tossed in a striped top, I thought that a solid scarf with a little bit of embellishment might be a calming touch.  This scarf is one of those things that you could wear forever... and if you want jewelry made of genuine stones that don't break the bank, take a look at Novica.  You know that these aren't investment-grade gems, but they aren't glass or synthetic, and the unique designs are delightful. 

Cardigan – Ralph Lauren,  earrings – Novica,  pants - Jaeger, cowl top – Phase 8
watch – Skagen,  sparkle scarf – St. John Collection,  loafers – Munro 
Coat – Uniqlo,  tote – Fossil

I love this sweater... I have a thing about cable-knit sweaters, I admit!  And this dress is cut in such a way that it would forgive a holiday dinner without giving away the secret.

  1. I am so happy to see navy return, hopefully to stay awhile. It seemed to disappear for a few years, but it is such a softer side of black and I would like to own some more great pieces like you have found here. Thanks for the options...have a wonderful weekend, Janice.

  2. Every time I believe a set is going to be my favorite, you surprise me with a new favorite. This one is my new favorite! :-)

  3. What Ellen said. :)
    And I always have had a cable knit in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember. Don't wear much print, but give me some texture any day.

  4. Stunning and I'm also a huge fan of cable knit sweaters.

  5. Every capsule wardrobe you put up here I think, "THOSE are going to be my capsule wardrobe colors." But then the next day you put up another lovely collection, and I change my mind again. Lovely as always!

    1. You're not alone! I do that too.

  6. Can anyone suggest me any best Best Weather Measuring Instruments? Actually, I wanna set a cabled weather measuring instrument in my office to forecast weather report for our manufacturing.
