Daily Covet: Ralph Lauren Wool Cashmere Poncho

Let’s face it, ponchos have come a long way since their vintage sisters made their way onto the style scene.

This Ralph Lauren Wool – keyword Cashmere – poncho looks so cozy and warm and perfect for fall.

I’d pair it with knee boots and jeans or or a wool mini skirt. I’d totally wear it to the pumpkin patch with my kiddos or to run errands in high style. It’s such an easy piece, I could throw it on to get the mail or pick the kids up from school. And it comes in gray and olive – the first I have loved always and the second is my new favorite neutral.

Like most things I love, it’d go almost anywhere!

Daily Covet: J.Crew This “Darling” Sweater


J.Crew’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection happens to contain this fabulous cashmere sweater plastered with the word “Darling” across the front.

And I need it!

The thought of heather gray cashmere and bright pink scribble puts this covet-worthy sweater at the top of my “to want” list!

Daily Covet: Sexy animal prints skirts…Meeeeoooowwww!

Animal prints plus sexy pencil skirts.  What better combination.

Throw a pencil skirt on with a fitted denim shirt or a cashmere twinset, and you’ve got sophistication all wrapped up.

It’s no secret that I adore virtually anything J.Crew, and this “Safari Cat” No. 2 pencil skirt is no exception.

And score… it’s 30% off today!

Daily Covet: Cashmere for Kids

The majority of our clothing budget is spent on our two boys.

It’s so much more fun to buy for them because their sizes are so predictable.  They always fit into the size that their age says they are supposed to fit into.  If anything gets too small, it’s only because the sleeves or the legs are too short.  It’s never because they have to lay down on their beds to get their jeans buttoned, like one person in my household, who shall remain nameless.

So when I received one of my daily emails from Barney’s this morning, I immediately had to check out the sale on the most adorable Christopher Fischer cashmere sweaters.  Now, I will admit that I have only invested in cashmere for the older of my boys.  And the youngest of my boys, specifically, will NEVER get cashmere anything because of his lack of table manners, but these cashmere sweaters for kids from Barneys.com (sale $98) are almost irresistable.

See for youself.

Daily Covet: One word. Cashmere.

Ok, I had a crisis there for a minute, and it’s been averted.  Cranberry orange relish was a hit, and was quick enough to keep me on schedule.

So back to what’s important.  Far more important than nourishment, if you ask me… Come on people, I cannot carry you through Thanksgiving with my culinary expertise! (You can stop choking on your beverage now.)

So, what am I coveting today?  Primarily, sleep.  But what’s better than reading your favorite magazine, Lucky, fluffing your pillow and peacefully drifting off to sleep?

I’ll tell you what.  Doing it in cashmere.  Need I say more?

Ok, so it’s not cheap.  But you could wear this cashmere tank set from RedEnvelope.com every night of the year, if you wanted to, making the cost per wear $0.41.  You probably spend far more than that on Vicks VapoRub, Kleenex and your reusable water cup.

Give it some thought… or put it at the top of your Christmas list!
