Style tip 👉 When you find something that fits well and that you wear often, buy it in another color. 😆 I’m not embarrassed to admit that I still do this with a few of my most often-worn basics.

A casual cashmere sweater
I’ve probably purchased this J.Crew crewneck in half a dozen colors over the last three years. It’s one of the few casual cashmere sweaters I’ve found that’s not too long for me, and it’s lightweight so I can wear it well into Spring. The fit is relaxed enough to do a French tuck, without being oversized. This bright, warm green is one of my very best (and very favorite) colors! 💚
Is it the highest quality cashmere on the market? No, but it washes well and retains its shape, and doesn’t pill any more than some pricier sweaters I’ve owned. (And this sweater comb takes care of those.) These cashmere sweaters are only discounted occasionally, so I’ll always try to give you a heads up when they are.
I’m wearing size Small.
I bought this fuzzy trucker jacket from Banana Republic just about a year ago, thinking it would be a “novelty” piece. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that I wore it almost daily for months. It just seems to go with everything! And it’s warm, but not too warm for mild Spring weather.
It’s now sold out, but I found a few on Poshmark. And here are some similar styles:
I mentioned in my weekend newsletter that I am absolutely smitten with these new French Kande FK Petite necklaces. They layer easily but look good worn singly too. What I love about that adjustable lariat necklace is that it clips in place, so you can “set it and forget it.” Both necklaces are also available in silver.
I decided that my home manicures will only get better if I practice. 😂 Nail color is Chanel “Gitane.”
I’ve been waiting for years for Vince to offer these sneakers in a warm brown. Last fall they finally added one in tan suede which I snapped up, and more recently this croc-embossed leather in a yummy caramel. These are just as comfortable, and a perfect for when I want a more refined look than the suede. (I’d suggest ordering ½ size down from your usual shoe size.)
Do you ever buy items in multiples?
