Monday, Monday…

It may be Monday, but at least it’s Fashion Flash Monday. Aging Backwards is hosting this week, and as usual topics cover a lot of ground and include something for everyone.

  • Skin care for mature and acne-prone skin.
  • Adding some edge to a conservative outfit.
  • Under eye circles…cause and effect.
  • Dark chocolate dipped strawberries!! 
  • Finding beauty at any size and age.

I can’t predict how frequently I’ll be posting while our home renovation project is underway but do have more Packing for Paris/Provence and travel posts planned for the next few weeks. And as Karen is also planning a visit to Paris in early April, I’m hoping I can persuade her to share her travel wardrobe capsule, (which is quite different than mine) and perhaps even some style notes from Paris.

In the meantime, my Sale Pick of the Week: this washable wool cardigan from Eileen Fisher, now $159.  I purchased last year’s version of this sweater in a redwood color, and it’s one of my favorite pieces. Took the plunge this year on the teal, which is quite pretty.  This style seems to run slightly smaller than other Eileen Fisher cardigan styles, so if you are uncertain, order a size up.

It has a beautiful shape with diagonal panels in the back so drapes quite niecely.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

    That cardigan is fabulous. It may already be too hot for it here, what a change.

    This model is perfect for you: ). But – washable wool, surely wool should tolerate washing when dirty! Often only airing it is enough?

    The color makes the sweater although I’m sure it’s great in redwood too. We wrote that teal was the new color for fall or so said the fashion world in the US. I think it can transcend seasons.
