How fabulous does that sound?
One element of France I miss is the open fireplace – we were excellent at blazing fires and lounging about. It’s different in the city – we are lucky enough to have a couple of working gas fireplaces – but it is not the same. The flames add plenty of ambience and look pretty but that’s about it. There is nothing like a wood fire and a little smoke thrown in for good measure. We should try one of those fire pits for outside but that’s a whole other deal and with the temperatures dropping and the wind blowing, it’s an indoors kind of weekend.
My fixation with comfort continues.
Cashmere track pants more precisely. My daughter inspired me the other day, she looked so cosy and cute, it reminded me of how wonderful they feel and what a great weekend wardrobe piece they are. She wore hers indoors with an oversized shirt and a pair of trainers; then threw on her coat to head outdoors. It’s the same as wearing regular sweatpants but something about the cashmere gives them a more refined look.
My cashmere needs an update, so I’ve been searching. All my basics seem to need an upgrade and it’s made me realise how my way of dressing has changed this year. I’m busting for a new dress, the idea of dressing up is so appealing right about now, but I keep waiting.
Waiting for what I’m not sure.
In the meantime, I’ll be snuggling up in these all weekend. xv
