50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC CASHMERE SWEATER | FASHION OVER 40Tennessee is a gorgeous State and even though it is raining right now, I love the view from the mountain where my parents live. They overlook the town so at night time you get a wonderful view with all of the lights below. It is funny that I still call this home even though I haven’t lived here for over 30 years. I will say that “I am going home” and it could be either Grundy or Livingston that I am talking about. Lol! I am just a Tennessee girl living in a Virginia world.
50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC CASHMERE SWEATER | FASHION OVER 40 I still feel like a kid when I go home. I revert back to being the child instead of the mommy and grandma. That is probably why you will hear people say, “You will always be my baby.” It is so true, we can go from a full-grown adult with all the responsibilities in the world to a kid in a matter of minutes. It is nice to be pampered by mom and dad and let all of the responsibilities fade away. It is like the Calgon commercials…..take me away.50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC CASHMERE SWEATER | FASHION OVER 40 I put this outfit on and walked through the house and Joe was an immediate fan! “I love that sweater” is what he said. Joe has always been a fan of the classics so I was not surprised for him to like this sweater. It is the classic crew neck, cable knit design, AND it is cashmere so what is not to like? I am wearing a large and it fits true to size. It is dry clean only, of course, so be sure to take that into consideration. This is by a brand called 1901, and for cashmere, it is pretty affordable. I have a few cashmere sweaters although not a lot. If you are going to buy a cashmere sweater for the first time then you might want to buy a classic style so that you will be sure to get plenty of wear from it. Here is the link to this sweater and below are a couple others that you might like.

50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC CASHMERE SWEATER | FASHION OVER 40I didn’t wear very much jewelry with this look. For one thing, I am usually afraid that I will snag my top when I wear something that is cashmere so I will choose to wear a scarf instead. The silver rhinestone circle necklace that I have on is a vintage one that I found on eBay. The black Channing earrings are from Plunder Design. They feature a large black gem drop with black tassel. Go here to shop with Plunder Design jewelry and be sure to pick a party with my name in it. 50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC CASHMERE SWEATER | FASHION OVER 40I had been searching for a new pair of black jeans/leggings. I ended up buying the Curves 360 by NYDJ because of the fit and the built-in sculpting. These will stretch as you wear them so be sure to size down. I am wearing a size 8 here when I normally wear a size 10. I like the denim leggings because they still have the styling like jeans but the fit of leggings which is great for wearing boots in the fall and winter. Plus, they look great when worn with long, oversized sweaters.
50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC CASHMERE SWEATER | FASHION OVER 40The scarf that I have on today is old. I don’t even remember buying this scarf but the color was perfect for this sweater. Pastels are not colors that I gravitate toward but I loved the color palette in the scarf when I bought it. Plus, I didn’t have to worry about it “snagging” the cashmere sweater. Lol! Which look do you like best? The necklace or the scarf?

50 IS NOT OLD | A CLASSIC CASHMERE SWEATER | FASHION OVER 40I am not going to have a Saturday Weekly Newsletter tomorrow. I am instead choosing to spend some time with my family. I know you gurl’s understand. I may do a “surprise” one in a day or two. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  1. I love the soft luxury of cashmere! Both the necklace and scarf work. The scarf pops a little more and feels more casual than the necklace
    I think it would just depend on my mood what look I was trying to acheive.

    I did love when I visited my parents and got taken care of. Enjoy your time with your family. I love those pants. You have looked really skinny lately.

  3. A very “put together”, but comfortable look. Enjoy your time with family and those beautiful mountains!!!

  4. I lived in Texas until 7th grade. For the past 50 years I have lived in New York and New Jersey. My home is Texas and will always be. I live and breathe country so I know how you feel. Enjoy your time with your loved ones.

  5. I love the classics too and this sweater is a winner. I like the small pendant necklace but that’s just my style. I keep hearing about those pants and need to give them a try. Enjoy your family. It’s nice to go home and you’re right about reverting to a kid. I do the same with my parents. I’m so lucky they are still with me.

  6. I keep forgetting to tell you how nice your new hairstyle looks. I want to copy it!

  7. We are exactly the opposite! I moved from my hometown 3 years ago at the age of 43, to a whole new state. I already feel more at home here than I ever did where I grew up. This is home to me and I rarely go back, but I never say I’m going home, because that is no longer home. I always hated where I lived and used to beg my parents to move to a different state. Of course as a kid I didn’t understand that is easier said than done. It is great though that you still enjoy going “home” and visiting your family.

    I like the scarf, but I love wearing scarfs so my opinion might be biased! Please don’t forget to give us the results of your mascara study! I can’t wait to see which one you preferred!! Have fun w your family!

    • Just wondering if this cashmere is itchy….sometimes it is and sometimes is isn’t. Curious.
