Continuing the loose theme of being very comfortable this week, another one of my go-to solutions is a long, slouchy cardigan. It's like wearing your bathrobe, except that it's cool to do it in public.here).
- Cardigan - Joseph A, consignment; last seen here with swirls of colour in November 2018
- Sweater - Sonia Rykiel, consignment; last worn here (2nd outfit) layered under another sweater in December 2018
- Trousers - Pariscope, vintage 90s, thrifted; last seen here in November 2018 with Helmut Lang
- Shoes - Truths Makena, Fluevog; last worn here (2nd outfit) in December 2018 - same outfit as this sweater!
- Coat (below) - Vassali, consignment; last seen here on Monday
I had good reactions from my coworkers - the fun plaid trousers, the chartreuse green cardigan, and all the accessories.
I love long cardigans.

All comfy, and all with pockets!
Outerwear - long sweaters need a long coat. This is how you end up with a coat wardrobe; you keep buying coats that go with specific items in your wardrobe.

- Gloves - Parkhurst
- Choker - Myka, thrifted
- Funky square - POLY, thrifted
- Long chain - POLY, thrifted
- Silver/gold cuff - JPA, vintage fair

Rings (from bottom):

Phew, that's a lot of bling!
As I was leaving this morning, I went looking for Vizzini. I spotted him up on top of his post, gazing out the window.
|"Look how sad I am. Woe is me."|
L and I have not been around much this week, and he misses his playtime, brush-time and nap-time (on our laps).
|"Lies. You're just a heat source to me, Woman."|
Aw, Vizzini, you know I would stay home with you if I could!
|"You owe me cuddles. And more kitty treats."|
We sure do. Off to take care of my little morose kitty.
Love that cardi so much! I had a fav one that was a hand me down that really bit the dust and I need another one. Kimonos are the bathrobes you wear out in public sorta lolol!!ReplyDelete
Same here. Oh yes, of course, kimonos are cool, and pretty close to bathrobes!Delete
Love the plaid pants, they seem to be all the rage at the moment. Vizzini is too cute. XReplyDelete
Ha, the style has finally caught up to ME! Thanks, Jess.Delete
I love how well this all works together Sheila, and you make me want to add more long cardis to my winter wardrobe! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Mica! Give them a shot. Maybe they are the "new" kimono??Delete
You carry off the plaid pants beautifully! Not everyone can.🤣ReplyDelete
I'm a little iffy on them myself (I have pant confidence issues). Thanks, Rebecca!Delete
Love those plaid pants, I wish I could carry them off. They always remind me of my punk days. The chartreuse cardigan offsets the black and white to great effect. Speaking of black and white, aw, look at Vizzini! Phoebe's been a bit moody as well. It must be the lack of sunshine. xxxReplyDelete
Maybe you just haven't found the right pair? These actually have a khaki colour in them, in addition to the black and white, so I tend to add tan or green to the mix when I wear them.Delete
Isn't Vizzini cute? Such a lovey boy.
Awwww, he's so handsome!!!ReplyDelete
Another lovely outfit- I really like this, particularly the trousers- so enamoured by checked trousers!
Isn't he? And he knows it. Thanks - I love checked trousers too.Delete
Oh those trousers have been given a new life with this cardi. It is just as perfect as it is functional.ReplyDelete
Poor, poor neglected Vizzini! Sylvester looks at me like that when I have to cut our "couch snuggle time" short in the morning to leave for work. I dig those checked trousers. I would love to find a pair of patterned pants that fit my waist and my hips.ReplyDelete
He does love us being around (I think mostly for our warm laps in this season). Pants are such a challenge, aren't they?Delete
