NEUTRALS + CLUB MONACO CASHMERE



If there's one thing I love, it's a good cashmere scarf. I picked up the Delphine cashmere scarf earlier this winter and have been wearing it nonstop. It's such a perfect neutral, it really goes with everything. I love Club Monaco cashmere because it's so soft and luxurious. I've also found that Club Monaco tends to offer the most cashmere for the price compared to similar retailers. And of course, the quality is superb — CM outsources their Mongolian cashmere to old-school Italian mills to be spun. While I've also found that a few J.Crew textiles are spun in Italian mills, it can be tough to find with affordable retailers these days. Though, it's definitely worth noting, because the quality is unmatched!



Speaking of quality... these booties! I'm always underscoring how I believe it's so important to buy quality pieces over quantity. And, here I am, breaking my own rules. Ugh. I picked up these faux-leather booties for just over $30! I'll admit, the quality is lacking, but I think they'll be able to survive the D.C. winter! I really love that the exterior wipes off super easily and that I won't feel bad if they get scuffed up or spilled on. I'm thinking they'll make for a perfect addition to a casual look for going out at night!
