18 Oct Easy Fall “Uniform”- Madewell Perfect Vintage Jeans with Cami and Cashmere Cardigan
Wearing a lightweight cashmere cardigan is the perfect third piece for early Fall.
Soft Surroundings- Cashmere Cardigan
The Delphine Cashmere Cardigan from Soft Surroundings is the perfect weight for early Fall and adds that sophisticated 3rd piece to your outfit. The shape is lovely, as the back is cut straight across, while the front gives it a waterfall draping that comes down lower on the body.
It comes in 3 shades, and of course I had to pick the “dark olive”. There is an “oatmeal” color and black as well.
According to Soft Surroundings” Subtle fashion touches like a flowy open front, ribbed cuffs, and slimming seam details add to the perfection. Our cashmere is 100% Mongolian with long, hand-brushed (not sheered) fibers known to be the softest kind, to pill less, and get softer with the years.”
It really is the perfect piece for this time of year, if there is a chill in the air, this lightweight piece is stylish and will keep you cozy!
I kind of went into Madewell on a whim one day. Many bloggers have good things to say about this brand, and I wanted to just see what the fuss was about. Hubby waited at the “drop of zone” with the dogs outside, while I tried on several pairs. I did notice the quality of the jeans straightaway. Much of the denim was thicker, like real old-school denim. Trying on 2 pairs of the Perfect Vintage style, the dark charcoal grey caught my eye. ( The Lunar Wash ) They were a bit cropped, as Mom jeans often are, but I loved the idea of not having to cuff my jeans to wear with boots, or that my shoes could stand out. I also found that I wear a size 26 in Madewell jeans, when I am a 27 in AG, and other brands. Purchasing 2 pairs of the Perfect Vintage, both were straight legs and with 99% cotton and 1% elastane. Rigid jeans to me, with 100% cotton, are too stiff, so this was just the right amount of stretch for comfort.
These are a high rise, with an 11″ rise, and I am all for the high- rise jeans as I am long waisted. This style also comes in a mid-rise jean if you don’t wear high rise or it doesn’t suit your proportions.
So, as a 3 piece outfit, this combination of denim, a camisole and cardigan is one of my favorites. If it is too chilly for the camisole, substitute a long sleeve tee or a thin turtleneck top.
If you missed my post on What I am Loving This October give it a read. I do include a Fall recipe 🙂
We did enjoy attending Dog and Drinks at Raylen Vineyards. Bringing some supplies for the Humane Society, and supporting shelters that are adopting dogs is something I enjoy doing. We listened to music, enjoyed some vino, and then I made my rounds petting the pups!
We met so many different breeds of dogs, and I was just commenting the other day you never see English Bulldogs around here. I did meet one, named Henry and he was so loveable, I just love the squishy face and wrinkles and do think English bulldogs need a “people name” as they have that look about them.
Have you checked out the Soft Surroundings Fall Catalogue? Are you wearing Mom jeans this season?
