The cashmere wrap

I could not agree more with Angie's recommendation of a cashmere wrap (for those of us who live in cooler climates.) I broke down and bought one at NAS and now wish I got two. Wearing one as I type on retreat now!

    Oh, you look so cozy wearing it, Suz.  I agree with everything as well ( I am sure that there is a glitch somewhere and the comments will be enabled soon).  I have one very large cashmere scarf that is not as big as a wrap, and I wear it all the time in the cold months as a scarf, but not so much the other ways as it is off-white and it gets dirty easily.  I am very tempted with the light blue version of the wrap Angie posted.

    Oooh I love the colour of your wrap, Suz!! I'm a big fan of (cashmere) wraps too, the bigger the better!

    And yes, for some reason comments on the blog post are not enabled. Trying to figure out how to fix that as we speak (Greg will be up soon, so if I can't get it to work, Greg will make it happen soon!-)

    Agree! I wore a wrap this morning (alas, not cashmere!) on my way in to work. They are so easy to wear over anything, just throw on and ready to go. I also used mine on a trip to Europe, worked great on the plane and in rainy Rome.

    Portable blankies are the best. I have many. The Chan Luu is the most beautiful.

    Ooh. The right travel wrap has been a HEWI for me...

  • Joyce B replied 5 years ago

    That's such a lovely color on you and it looks so cozy! I just ordered the gray one.

  • Alexandra replied 5 years ago

    You look so cozy in it and the color is just perfect for you! I've been wearing a large pashmina (smaller than this wrap) for travel but seeing how this looks on you, not overwhelming, I'm thinking it would work well for me too.

    Yes, great color!

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    I cannot agree more (and neither to comment on the blog:-() but I do have an indoor soft poncho in this color which  can be used as a wrap, too! Big love!

  • Banoffi replied 5 years ago

    Those look really cozy.  I may get one for my office as it's always freezing in the autumn and winter.

  • replied 5 years ago

    Now I wish I had bought a second one.  

  • Mirjana replied 5 years ago

    Lovely cashmere wrap, you look fantastic. I agree that is very useful.

    I discovered the comfort of a wrap many years ago, when I bought one (same color as yours) for a trip to Russia.  It quickly became my best friend. For all the reasons listed in Angie's blog, but especially for cold offices (it seems that I have often worked in cold workplaces). There was a guy-coworker in a place where I used to work some years ago  who always appreciated my dressing style but did not like the wrap: he said that in that wrap I made him think of Dracula! Hahaha.

    Despite some moth-holes I am still using it, I'm too fond of it.

    I'm big fan of cashmere wraps, too. I feel the cold first on my neck and shoulders, and so a wrap hits the spot when my office gets chilly. I'm traveling this week, and I used mine as both a wrap and a blanket on different legs of my long travel day. Love!

  • Diana replied 5 years ago

    You look so cozy! I am a big fan of big cozy wraps too. I have several storebought woven ones and a few handknit ones as well.

  • Sisi replied 5 years ago

    Suz, I forgot to tell you that you look very well in that color!

  • Windchime replied 5 years ago

    Your wrap looks so pretty on you and warm. Clever to bring it on your retreat.

    I have a cape, purchased at last year's NAS, which functions similarly to your wrap. It even kept me warm--and modestly turned out--in the hospital ER!

  • Xtabay replied 5 years ago

    You just can't beat cashmere for travel.  It's so light and yet so warm.  Any other fabric just won't do. 

    Suz, you look happy and toasty and chic in your cashmere!

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Oh, I love that wrap on you - the color is beautiful.  If I had one, I'd probably never take it off all winter.  I get chilled so easily when it's cold.

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    YES, YES, YES. You gorgeous creature. How perfect, and thanks for sharing. 

  • replied 5 years ago

    Cozy and lux.

    Years ago, a style expert I admired at the time published an article decrying pashminas as frumpy. She only grudgingly used one for warmth and modesty in the hospital after she gave birth to her son. As a longtime lover of wraps (though never a pashmina, authentic or otherwise), I felt a bit crushed at the time, but kept on using them for the practical side, accepting that I wasn't stylish. How refreshing now to see Angie's updated and pragmatic stance, and your and other stylish ladies' executions.

    This article details further uses. Hope you won't need the last one!

    Looks great Suz, I love the color. You look fab!

  • JAileen replied 5 years ago

    I want one, but do I need one? Well, we are flying to Minnesota soon. I'll have to think on it some more.

    BTW, you look great!

  • AJ replied 5 years ago

    Berry colors are so lovely on you!  

    I have been off scarfs for awhile.  I need to check through my larger choices and use it as a wrap.  It would be good for my "hot fall" capsule.  

    Enjoy your retreat!

  • kerlyn replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous color on you, Suz!

  • Style Fan replied 5 years ago

    Beautiful wrap Suz.  Love the colour on you.  I always travel with my pashmina.  I find them very handy.

  • Eliza replied 5 years ago

    This is your color (well one of them...). High cosy quotient! Well done.
