WIW : Lunch Date

Hi Ladies,

Had lunch with my MIL on Monday.  It was a cold day and a great opportunity to wear my new cardigan/jacket.

Cardigan : Bloom
Leggings : Target
Tunic : Via Birdsnest
Boots : Serra

The new cardigan gave me  lift but I had one of 'those' days on Monday.  Not really feeling fantastic... may just need to establish going to be a bit earlier and getting more sleep!!  I really liked wearing the cardigan.  Felt comfy and warm and I love the way the lapels fall.  This could easily become a workhorse for me.

xxx Deborah

    The cardigan is lovely. I can see it being very versatile. I love that it has what appear to be leather or maybe faux leather sleeves, which add interest, the waterfall front also looks great.

    I find the new cardi suitable for giving you all the lifts you need on one of "those" Mondays! Great find, those leather sleeves, the dramatic collar  and back cut are so edgy! I can see it being not only one of those few  cardis looking extra polished but feeling it comfy, too-which is great! 
    Fun fashion fact:
    Any time I see this great piece it reminds me of a light grey blazer of 2 (or 3?)yrs ago with a similar cut in the back. It was so ahead of the trends by us (and think here, too) I even asked the forum about what's the trick with this rear view, LOL! It fit me perfectly, but was sheepish to keep it despite YLF wow's and Angie's styling recommendations to simply style it with a longer top for the back view. Or rather, to be honest, I just, couldn't imagine it IRL, and I just couldn't find a top, to work with it, so I left it in the store.....now, sobbing after:-((.

    Hope you are feeling better today. That cardigan is a great piece, I think you will get lots of wear out of it.

  • Lucy replied 5 years ago

    Perfect! Even if you felt blah, you certainly didn't look it!

  • Elizabeth P replied 5 years ago

    I think this looks great, sorry you were having one of "those" days.  And man, you style drapy layers like nobody's business! 

    :( Lyn.

    Love, Love, Love this!

  • SarahTheWhite replied 5 years ago

    Wow, this is so great! I love how much texture and detail your outfits have, even when they are all black. That is so cool!

  • No Fear of Fashion replied 5 years ago

    Yes I agree, you cannot go wrong with this cardigan. Perhaps a long small bright pink silk scraf to fill my (emphasis on the "my") need for colour ? LOL

  • Sveta replied 5 years ago

    This cardigan is very "you" and the whole outfit spells "Deborah" in a very clear way.
    Mondays are tough: I often feel low energy and tired on Mondays.

  • Isabel replied 5 years ago

    OMG, Deborah !  I have to give this a 10.  I have always loved the way that you dress but this is just amazing.  WOW.

    You've honed your style to perfection, Deborah, right down to hair style and earrings. While I don't share your ability to wear slouchy styles, I am so inspired by your clear definition of your style and discipline to achieve it. I never miss a post from you!

  • crutcher replied 5 years ago

    Perfect for ladies who lunch...I try to remember cold and feels snuggy but honestly that is a kingdom far,far away...THX for the share..

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous outfit -- such beautiful layering. Sorry you were feeling blue, but you looked amazing. 

  • Karin L H replied 5 years ago

    Wonderful outfit Deborah! Hope you feel better today.

    Just love this, and your red lip keeps it lively!

  • Lyn D. replied 5 years ago

    Love a cardigan-jacket  that looks this good whilst being cosy too!
    I agree that you will be wearing this one a lot throughout our Winter.
