It’s not quite summer yet, but if your family is like my family, you’re probably getting your travel plans finalized soon. Hopefully they involve lots of water and sun.
Our summer travel plans are quite modest this year; we’ll have my step-son with us, so we’ll take him to go visit family in Atlanta around July 4th, and drive from there to Orlando to drop him off for summer camp at a university there for a few weeks. Then, at the end of August, we have his Bar Mitzvah in south Florida. Maybe we can sneak away to the beach somewhere in there??
But this weekend I’m flying to Atlanta for a quick visit with family, and I’ll be wearing this outfit exactly. When I fly, I’ve been defaulting to jeans lately, and always wear a sweater, hot outside or not. In the past, I’ve tended to wear cardigans, but now, I’m going to stick with pullovers; I hate to take off my outer layer to go through security, which you have to do if you’re wearing a jacket or cardigan. Anything I can do to avoid getting completely undressed in the security line, I’ll do…It’s bad enough I have to take off my shoes. Ah. Remember the olden days of air travel??
Anyway, you’re probably aware of my love for Inhabit by now, and I know many of you share it. so when they reached out to me to work together again, of course I was excited to do it! Over the years, I’ve had so many lovely Inhabit cashmere and cotton pieces; I always appreciate the quality and the design that goes into every piece – they’re unique and interesting, yet still stand the test of time.
But I wondered how I would work Inhabit’s spring cashmere into my wardrobe. I live in a place (Texas) where we absolutely DO NOT have cool summer nights. I understand that up north or at the beach, there are evenings when it can get rather cool and you’d need a sweater, but pretty soon here, I won’t want anything touching my body besides what HAS to.
Enter summer travel. And air conditioning. This Inhabit cashmere sweater is a perfect “summer-weight” – and yes, there is such a thing. I’ve had it for a few weeks now, and have worn it a handful of times. I wear it in the evening to dinner, and in the mornings when it’s still a little cool, and I take it with me to wear over a t-shirt if I’m going to sit at Starbucks and work. Always over just a tank top, and with the sleeves pushed up a bit, but it keeps my shoulders nice and comfy without adding any weight at all, and I’ve never been too hot. Which is why it will be the perfect thing for airplane travel in the coming months.
A quick review: I’m wearing a medium, which I think is wonderful, but may be a bit big? It’s meant to be oversized, but I think the small would still have been oversized enough on me, especially since I’m short. The cashmere is lightweight, and therefore not completely opaque, but it’s not sheer either. I wear a tank top or cami underneath generally, but for cooler weather, the sweater would be nice over a blouse or collared shirt. For those of you who have lightweight cashmere by James Perse, it’s comparable, but maybe seems a bit more “substantial” if that makes sense?
So, I know you saw the “giveaway” part in the post title – here’s your chance to win your own Inhabit cashmere sweater!
