Mallards on the Pond

Sweater: Macy's; Dress: BCBG (old); Belt: H&M; Boots: Target; Purse: Coach (similar); Bracelet: handmade by CP's mom

Considering that the temps aren't negative... I shouldn't be whining about the weather, but the combination of endless fog, drizzly rain, and temperatures lurking around 37 degrees, I can't help but whine. Even the ducks looked cold in the park when they swam toward us to beg for bread.

My mom sent me this pretty cashmere for Christmas and I just love the color. It goes great with work slacks and a pair of pearls, as well as over dresses for this never-ending chilly season. Cashmere sweaters are one of my favorite wardrobe items for the winter as wool and angora give me the itchies and it's one of the only fancy fabric items I can wear without fear of a prickly rash (besides silk, of course). I do love being cloaked in natural materials and usually get an annual cashmere that I love the heck out of until it's totally destroyed.
