Chic camel cashmere cardigan. Say that three times fast! Ha! Y’all. You don’t have to say it three times, but you better believe I’m going to wear this oh so sophisticated but simple sweater more than three times this fall! I’m in love…
I had been planning to purchase a classic cashmere pullover sweater this season. But I just hadn’t found one the exact shade of camel that I felt would flatter my skin, hair and eyes. You know camel, while a neutral, can have warm, neutral or cool undertones. I wanted one with more neutral undertones, definitely not warm, but also not so cool that it washed me out. Know what I mean?
So when I came upon this camel cashmere cardigan I decided to order it and see. Honestly, I had low expectations and fully planned to return it. But this baby’s staying right here with me!
Now for the bad news. This cardigan is almost sold out. I’m wearing a size small, and as of last night all they had left was an extra large. I’m so disappointed. It comes in a pretty dark grey also, but it’s only available in one medium and xx-large. I know there were more sizes available just a couple of days ago!!
Not to fear, you can achieve the same look with another camel cashmere cardigan (or not cashmere!) or even a pullover. I think the beauty of wearing a camel sweater is to pair it with low-key wardrobe essentials for a classic, chic look. That’s why I wore mine with some of my favorite high waist ankle skinny jeans (currently marked down 33%) and a white scoop neck t-shirt.
I added my camel colored suede pumps (similar) and picked up my leopard print clutch (similar) for a singular splash of interest. Then I kept my accessories simple and classic: gold bangle, necklace and hoop and stud earrings.
Simple. Classic. Soft. Chic. Sophisticated. Lovely.
Need I go on?
Because I feel so bad about this particular cashmere cardigan being practically sold out, I scoured the Internet for more options. And I found some lovely ones! Yes, you’ll have to look carefully or try them out to see if they’re the shade that best suits your coloring. But, from what I can see, I’d feel comfortable ordering any of these in the shopping widget below.
I especially like this leather buckle fly-away sweater (not cashmere, but beautiful) or this cashmere wrap cardigan or this cashmere relaxed mock neck sweater (use code COLORS for 40% off today only).

Blessed for My Day
As we begin another week we have few assurances of what the days hold. We may have calendared certain events, budgeted for our purchases, plan to stick to our schedule and rely on the people in our lives to be there. But any of those things could fall through.
While I don’t want to sound depressing or discouraging, I also want us to live in the reality that there is little that is certain in this life. But there is one certainty. God is trustworthy. When we don’t understand what He is doing or why, we can trust His character. He is good. When we don’t understand His timing, we can trust that He is working His plan. When we don’t feel good about things, we can trust that He is steadfast.
When you realize how little you know, hold on to what you do know. Hold onto God’s character, His Word, His ways and His promises. He alone is your steadfast rock.
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. ~ Isaiah 26:4
