I’ve taken some much-needed downtime the last few days. The holidays will explode with busyness very soon so last week was pure fun. My oldest girlfriend (I’m 6 months older which she delights in reminding me) and her fellow have been visiting for the past week and we’ve been playing tourist.
Debbie and I have been close friends for over 48 years. We share many things but knitting is a passion for both of us so we hit a local yarn shop that was going out of business and “did some damage”. All fun. The only people in my life who’ve known me longer are my 2 brothers, which I find a sobering thought.
Our weather has been glorious the last few days, so a sweater and scarf have been warm enough. I got Lucy out for her first walk, post-surgery. She trotted off very quickly so next time I’ll need her leash which is a wonderful thing.
This classic cashmere sweater is on sale and comes in lots of colors. I’m a big fan of V-neck cashmere sweater but usually get them in neutrals, so this Blossom color is a fun change.
I wrapped this fabulous scarf around the neck and simply tucked the ends in. The color is stunning all by itself but the little pieces of sewn-on silk create a texture that makes this a no-brainer for replacing a necklace.
I added my favorite silver hoop earrings and a large bangle for our trip to the yarn store and local lunch.
SHOP THE LOOK
I usually reach for dark wash denim but chose a paler wash for this look to keep it more casual.
Do you have girlfriends from your childhood?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
