Once you get over the whole gender stereotype issue that many of us have with pink, you have to admit that it can be really pretty... Very few of us would not be flattered by a color in this range. ... View the Post

What a rich, delectable color this is, and it seemed to go with all kinds of other colors...
And check out the tool bar on the right side of the screen (it's just a narrow black bar until you drag your cursor over it); I've FINALLY posted a photograph of myself on my profile! Taken on a train in Italy... sigh... ... View the Post

You do understand that a grey cardigan with a v-neckline can be worn in all of these ways. It's easy to forget that you can just button all the buttons and - voila - a v-neck sweater! ... View the Post
As before, you will see some familiar garments and accessories. To me, it is a delightful surprise to start preparing a post with a new color of sweater, readjust my aesthetic brain to that color, and then find that there a lot of flattering "common ground" with previous posts that I've done... Today I was particularly delighted to see how well yesterday's coral tee shirt and flats flattered the navy sweater and white jeans.

I never wear camel, because it's wicked unflattering on me, but I love the look of it...At it's simplest, the sweater with jeans or twill pants. A scarf, and some pretty earrings, and you're good to go. Note that the shades of camel don't have to match exactly.

When I was ironing yesterday, I realized, again, that my black v-neck sweater is perhaps the most frequently worn item in my closet in the cold weather. While mine is cashmere, if I had to replace it, I'd probably opt for a very "flat" merino wool, or maybe Eileen Fisher's cotton/silk blend...
Mine is big enough to layer, but not so huge that it looks sloppy on it's own. The v is low enough that a tee shirt peeks out when it's underneath, but if I wear the sweater alone I'm not risking a career-limiting move.
At it's most simple, the sweater, alone with a pair of simple jeans or khakis, is perfect:
And with a plain white cotton shirt, or silk blouse,anyone can wear it to work:
A tee shirt underneath is a great way to ... View the Post
