Fun fact: My absolute favorite show is Sex and the City. I watch it pretty much daily! My one frustration about the show is how Carrie constantly runs around town in the dead of winter with her coat wide open.No way is she warm enough, but I do love the idea of wearing my winter coats open. I mean, this one doesn’t even have a zipper (insert head shake from fiance here over said lack of zipper). Coats just always seem to look chicer when open, don’t they? Plus, you can see the fabulous outfit you’ve spent your time styling up underneath. So what’s my trick for winter layers that let you go coat open? Cashmere, baby, cashmere.I’ve been slowly growing my collection of cashmere sweaters over the years and I promise, it’s worth the splurge. No matter how thin the layer, a 100% cashmere piece never fails to keep me warmer than the thickest of sweaters made with blends, or worse, a synthetic. This cashmere cardi has been a go-to layering piece. The slightly cropped silhouette works perfectly with my many pairs of high-waisted denim and the feminine tie detail and blouson sleeve means it looks lovely layered over dresses, too!
