Cashmere + Leather

I've worn my Sass & Bide navy cashmere jumper so much over Winter. Bought in Melbourne in April, I had to wait until July for it to be cold enough in Auckland to wear. I'm new to cashmere. It's a gorgeous fabric, and so much warmer than merino.

Although an investment piece at NZ $400, I've been on the hunt for a quality cashmere jumper for about a year. This one is so versatile. I love how it looks with different fabrics, such as the smooth leather-look pencil skirt in the images below.

Now Spring is here, it will be lovingly wrapped in tissue and put into storage until next July!

Pastels are My Friends

I'm not normally a pastels kind of girl. When pastels roll around again in fashion, this equation usually comes front of mind: Pasty skin + Not a size 10 + Not 23 = YOU WILL LOOK TRAGIC IN PASTELS

So, I generally avoid them.

But this year, I have decided to decode pastels and try to make those bastards work for my body/skin tone/advanced age. Rather than source a garment from every colourway, I shall embrace blue and work it back with tan, white and gold. Here is what I have found so far on my online travels...

Lou & Grey

Ann Taylor is a well-known American fashion designer. I recently discovered their latest line Loft. Even cuter, their casual range Lou & Grey features some affordable pieces and boasts a huge range of sizes. Here are some of my favourites which I think would look as good on a 43-year-old as they would on a twenty-something:
