cashmere from head-to-toe | thanksgiving gift guide

the leaves are turning, the weather is getting colder, and we’re headed straight into Thanksgiving.  the transition is upon us from fall to winter, and this week i’m bringing you my first real series of warmer outfits.  today:  cashmere from head-to-toe.  after all, what is more luxurious than cashmere? 

last week, my family brought you a series of holiday memories:  Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.   keeping with that theme, join us all this week for holiday decorating ideas.  kelly and i are bringing you kitchen and dining room holiday-themed tablescapes.  you’re not going to want to miss them.  i even put together a gift guide for you for each holiday:  Thanksgiving through New Year’s. 

it’s going to be a fun, light, and family-filled week over here on Style at a Certain Age.  we know how hectic this season can be, but we’re looking forward to taking a break between the madness with you, even if it’s just for a little while.  

what’s better than cashmere? 

it’s been all about J.Crew for me this fall and winter.  (head over to their website for early Cyber Monday deals.)  today, i’m sporting a matching camel cashmere sweater layered with a cashmere sweater-blazer.  an easy way to break up this chromatic pairing is with a color pop.  i’ve chosen to do so with this silk scarf from Talbots.   i’ve been loving the silk scarves this year. and if you’re looking for some more ideas, this one from Talbots is one of our best sellers.

more cashmere

i’ve chosen to pair the cashmere sweater and cashmere sweater-blazer with this wide-leg pant from J.Crew.  i’ve featured the wide-leg pant several times this year, including coupling it with a blazer.  today, i’ve gone with a slight variation:  cropped wide-legs. 

i’m featuring them with these fun toby flats from Nordstrom because this look is on-trend this fall and winter.  however, cropped wide-legs plus flats can tend to make one look shorter.  stay tuned for tomorrow’s post, where i’ll take the same pant and pair it with heels.  then you’ll really get a sense of how versatile these pants are.

because baby… it’s cold outside 

it got cold in Athens last week.  how’s the weather been where you are?  are you going to get snow for Thanksgiving this year?  all i know is this:  it’s time to start bundling:  cashmere head-to-toe.

thanksgiving kitchen tablescape 

all this week, we’ll be featuring holiday tablescapes over here on the blog.  we’re starting with Thanksgiving.  first up is a more casual, kitchen tablescape.  i’m loving the retro vibe the green placemats contrasted with the laid napkins give.

    Love the autumn colors and textures. A chic look. Cashmere head to toe for warmth makes good sense, bare ankles and feet maybe not so much. Looking for styling suggestions, other than boots, that keep feet warm.

    Yes, it’s cold outside…everything is perfect- you, camel cashmere sweater layered with a cashmere sweater-blazer and silk scarf and wide-leg pants. Exept those UGLY
    “fun toby flats”! Maybe this look is on-trend, but IN MY OPINION is unexceptable. When it’s cold outside, I don’t joking with my health – I don’t show bare legs in flats which will not protect me from cold and rain.

    Warm greetings from Europe!

    Hi Beth, I love Cashmere, so warm and cozy. Temps here in England not so good, very damp and 4.30pm its 2c so roughly 34f not liking it at all. But we are off on a Carribbean cruise on Friday for 2 weeks so looking forward to the warmer weather.
    Loving you in the autumn colours and your table settings are beautiful xoxo

    Great look! I love how you paired the silk scarf with this–looks cozy and pretty all at once. And I personally like the shoes! That style is so easy to walk in, and I rarely wear heels these days after my Total Knee Replacement surgeries. I still like a dressy shoe that looks nice, though. Your tablescapes are lively, too. You put a lot of effort into all this-thanks for the hard work!

    Hi Beth, I love wide leg pants but just don’t get the cropped wide leg. I think they do make ones legs look short and what kind of hosiery does one wear with white winter legs?
