It feels great to get back into the swing of things after a whirlwind couple of months. With my husband away fighting fires much of the summer, a high school reunion in Las Vegas, a birthday trip to Seattle and a recent 3-day conference in Sonoma, I have had little time to devote to blogging. Things are finally starting to settle down and I am looking forward to focusing on what I enjoy doing: writing about fashion, beauty, travel and living a rich life in Wine Country!
Last Saturday, opening day at the Christmas tree farm in Glen Ellen, my husband and out ventured out to pick out our holiday tree as we do every year. It was a warm and sunny day and the perfect opportunity to breathe in fresh pine-scented air and get some exercise.
I wore my new Covered Perfectly Cascading Vest in black with a Long Sleeved Simple Comfort top in the new Wine color. The Cascading Vest is such a versatile wardrobe addition – great for creating more interest in an otherwise ordinary look. It’s also fantastic for elongating your silhouette and concealing some extra donut and French fry weight you may have put on while celebrating your birthday all month long 😉
I topped my outfit off with a wool felt hat from Montecristi Panama Hat Company in Napa Valley, one of my favorite hats for fall.
I kept my jewelry simple and wore a chunky silver ring with a leather and bead Buddha necklace I bought in Sonoma recently.
Off to hunt down the ideal tree!
It was not an easy decision but we finally found our tree. Time to pull the tag! We’ll come back the morning after Thanksgiving to cut the tree down and bring it home with us.
Later that day, before heading out to dinner, I changed into an evening look with the Cascading Vest. This time I wore it more elegantly with a Simple Comfort top in black.
I do love a monochromatic look, especially when there are lots of different textures to work with.
I love the way the Cascading Vest is a bit longer in back. Even with my tall stature, it gives me the coverage I want.
The Cascading Vest is a versatile piece that can easily take you from day into night, is machine washable, made in USA, and priced right at just under $40. It’s ideal for travel too!
And the Simple Comfort tops are such great foundational wardrobe workhorse, I don’t know what I ever did without them!
