A Classic Cashmere & Cords Outfit

November 10, 2021

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.

Classic Cashmere & Cords Outfit
corduroy pants // cashmere sweater in deep olive green (another option, on sale) // shoes (use code SARAHFLINT-BAKAYH for $50 off your first purchase) (more economical option) // jacket (similar and more available) // earrings // necklace // shoulder bag (more economical at Nordstrom Rack)

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!

Classic Cords Outfit

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.

Casual Navy Suit

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 Shoes
shoes (use code SARAHFLINT-BAKAYH for $50 off your first purchase) (GREAT more economical option)

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.

Classic Jewelry
earrings // necklace // shoulder bag (more economical at Nordstrom Rack)

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

Spread the love
xoxo, Kay

  1. I, and I’m sure many more people would understand that you had surgery and would cut you a break if you took some time off. I know from experience that any kind of surgery isn’t fun. So cut yourself a break. If you get a video or an email up late. We understand. Well, maybe not your mother. But that’s because she is concerned about you.

    1. Oh my mom completely understands. She was just concerned. But really I’m fine. It’s just my software giving me fits. But thanks so much for the concern.

  2. What a wonderful, surprising color combo. I would not have put those two colors together. But I need to remember, Navy is a neutral color, so of course it goes with olive green. It’s a beautiful outfit to be sure and you look awesome in it.

    Be kind to yourself in the midst of your healing. Things will work out for the best in all cases.

  3. Beautiful outfit! Love the color combination. Don’t push yourself. Your mental/physical health is much more important.
    Those of us that follow your blog, wish the best for you, and we can wait for your video. It has been a crazy two years, and we have learned that we can tolerate almost anything. Looking forward to your video whenever it is published.

  4. But it is so frustrating working on the video for so many hours and not getting it to work. I know you work so hard to get the blogs up. Thank you for the one you did today. I do look forward to them.
    I like the navy blue and green together. Looks so nice. I also like some of the other color combinations you mentioned. Light gray and light lavender together or pink. I also like green and pink together. And Dark chocolate brown and red. Bless you
    I just sit down with a cup of tea to read this lol as my phone has been ringing off the hook and all the texting
    Trying to get Thanksgiving arranged with kids and other family. Son and family is coming from Colorado.

  5. The outfit is lovely! Navy and green do look beautiful together. Classic and chic.
    Don’t be concerned about anything but healing. Be encouraged and rest assured that we ( all of your readers) want the best for you. Right now, the best is R&R so that you heal properly.

  6. Please take the time needed to heal. Life will be so much easier when you are rested and feeling no discomfort. The amount of time to take to rest is individual. Trying to set a goal on healing really is difficult and frustrating when you wanted to be yesterday. Take care of yourself and everything else will follow.

  7. Thinking of you and sending hugs!! Your posts are always awesome and on point. Sometimes we need to give ourselves a break and you deserve it! Love the color combinations of blue and green. Also your other suggestions are beautiful too! Hang in there!!

  8. This was a great post and the outfit is really nice!!! Love the navy and green together! And, of course, you wear it so well!

  9. I enjoy the blogs as well as videos. Please don’t fret over this! I realize a lot if work goes into these videos but truly, your health and wellbeing is far more important. Try to rest so your surgery site heals up properly.

  10. I I’ve seeing new color combinations that I wouldn’t think of on my own. The good thing is most of the time I have the pieces, I’ve just never tried them together. You rest and get better. After all, even God had to rest after working six days straight in a row. ??

    1. I like you Eve. You seem to be a wise woman and I love reading all your remarks. I hope you have a wonderful evening my friend,

  11. No worries Kay! This was a great post. Always enjoy anything you put together for us, whether it be post or video! We appreciate you.

  12. Great classic look with the gold touches…..snaps on you quilted jacket, gold necklace all works so well together.

    I have not owned a pair of corduroy slacks in a very long time. These look very chic.


  13. Kay we all appreciate your fashion inspiration, and once again this outfit hits the mark. Please do not feel obligated to release videos and publish blog entries when you are recuperating or other ‘life’ issues come along. You have given your readers and viewers such a wealth of joy with the BFMDs and inspiration with your fashion advice. We will always be watching and waiting for your latest updates. All the Best!

    1. Thank you Renee. But I’m really feeling fine now. I’m a week out from the surgery and healing is going well. I continue to rest as needed. But the problem yesterday was purely technical. And I finally resolved it late in the afternoon. So I was thrilled to be able to get the video up today.
