Cashmere Cravings

I know it's supposed to be summer, but the weather has been awful in Vancouver this past week. It was positively autumnal with the wind, rain, and gray skies outside. No wonder I started browsing sweaters and thinking longingly of buying a couple of good-quality investment sweaters in the fall. I have one green crew-neck wool/cashmere-blend sweater in a fine knit that I found in Winners once, and despite constant wear over the last 2.5 years it's stood up pretty well and doesn't pill as badly as artificial fibre or cotton sweaters.

It'll be a long time before I can shop again, but in the meantime I can do a lot of scoping for my perfect sweaters:
  • a long-sleeved black V-neck pullover in 100% wool or cashmere with a lightweight knit, something I can layer over a tee or tank

  • a long-sleeved scoop-neck pullover in 100% wool or cashmere in a punchy colour

  • a long-sleeved button-up layering cardigan

These pictures are half inspiration, half temptation for what I want. Note to self: scope out Bluefly for discounted cashmere when my shopping sabbatical is over.

  1. The weather lately has been making me cry...although right now it looks like it's getting sunny (of course I am trapped in my office though) maybe this weekend will be beautiful? I hope so!!! My gladiator sandals are begging to be let outdoors!

  2. Thanks Wendy!

    Julia: I know exactly how you feel. I came to work in a skirt and sandals...maybe I was being unreasonably optimistic.
