How to Layer Cashmere + Wool Sweaters
I joke, more often than I probably should, that I’m really a big kid. If you ever see the face I make when I eat bleu cheese or grapefruit, you’ll see it immediately. A little less embarrassing, perhaps, is my sensitivity to itchy or uncomfortable clothing. I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but I easily hyperfocus on uncomfortable clothing – my world seemingly coming to an end. This is the worst with sweaters. When it’s super cold outside, I don’t notice it as much, but I live in LA, so “super cold” is 52! Anyway, I refuse to not wear my sweaters even if it isn’t frigid outside, so I’ve been adding pieces underneath. I ALWAYS wear a tank top under sweaters at the very least, but I recently started layering collared shirts under my cashmere and wool sweaters. You’d think it’d be too hot, but the cotton shirt feels cooler and the ‘itchier’ material isn’t against my skin, so it’s actually a nicer experience. It’s also a bit more stylish and flattering with the multiple layers!!
Why You Need a Packable Raincoat
This raincoat (why is that one word?!?) is by Cole Haan and I’ve had it for years. It’s a great windbreaker, but it’s packable which makes it IDEAL for travel. It comes with a small, zipper pouch that it folds up neatly in. I can throw it in my carry on bag and not have to worry about another jacket or thing to finagle as I make my way through the airport! Nordstrom sells a variety of them. This one, most similar to mine, comes in 5 colors (I love the champagne). They also have a few other lengths AND men’s versions!! They’re all currently on sale (30-50% off)!!
