Greetings gracious reader! I do indeed need a little grace today. I’ve been struggling with editing this week’s video for the past 48 hours or so (I did sleep!), and I still don’t have a video to load for you. So, late on this Wednesday afternoon, I am punting and sharing a favorite classic cashmere and cords outfit. I do hope you enjoy checking it out.

I’ve been sharing outfits in navy a lot this fall. I know so many of my readers prefer it over black, so I decided to join the party!
I topped my classic straight leg corduroy pants with this 3/4 sleeve crewneck cashmere sweater in deep olive green (another option, on sale) for a very cool dark intensity look. I love this shade of green with navy. What about you? I’ve got other cashmere sweater options for you in the shopping widget below, by the way. In fact, I found some great deals on cashmere at Nordstrom (where you currently get 3x Nordy points) and Bloomingdale’s.
Creating a sort of “casual suit,” I topped my outfit with my indigo blue quilted jacket (similar and more available). I’ve been wearing this jacket a lot. I find it’s perfect for cool days and it’s roomy enough to layer on a couple or three shirts beneath if needed. Quilted jackets and vests are really trending this year.
Sarah Flint gifted me these beautiful and oh-so-comfortable navy suede Rosy loafers. They are pricey, but if you’d like to take the plunge on these or any other Sarah Flint shoes, use code SARAHFLINT-BAKAYH for $50 off your first purchase. But if you’re seriously looking for some navy loafers and don’t want to pay this price, check out these Navy faux leather LifeStrides at Macy’s. And they’re also available in deep brown and black.
I made very traditional jewelry choices with this classic cashmere and corduroy outfit. I wore my Kendra Scott split hoop earrings (also available in silver finish) and my Kendra Scott tassel bolo necklace.
I think this is one of those outfits where the color choices and combination win the day. Sometimes that’s all it takes to create a lovely look – a smart color pairing. Other color combinations that produce similar dividends would include chocolate brown and deep red, black and rich burgundy, chocolate brown and smoky orange or grey and amethyst purple. I think the key is to let that duo of color prevail and keep everything else simple.
I think this would make a great outfit to wear to Thanksgiving dinner if you’re going out or hosting family and friends. It’s simple, classic, pared back, but oh so elegant and chic. I’ll be sharing more Thanksgiving Day outfit inspiration Monday.
Thank you so much for dropping in today. You may wonder why I didn’t just skip posting today when my video editing failed. I schedule out about a month’s worth of posts at a time. And I take photos as needed. When I don’t post, you ultimately miss out. I want to get you everything I have planned! You absolutely are worth it to me. Thank you again for stopping by.

Blessed for My Day
It is so easy to get caught up in the BIG things of life to where we lose sight of how much BIGGER our God is. Life can feel overwhelming. Shoot, little things, mounded up one on top of another can feel heavy, burdensome and suffocating.
But let’s take time right now to refocus on the majesty and grandeur of our God. Let’s remember that he indeed does great things which we do not comprehend, not only in nature and other people, but in us. Let’s allow God to be big in us by quieting our fretting hearts and simply calling out for His help. He is always near and accessible.
God thunders wondrously with His voice, Doing great things which we do not comprehend. For to the snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth,’ And to the downpour and the rain, ‘Be strong.’ ~ Job 37:5-6
