Whew! I’m back. I’m still formulating my thoughts on the election (I had no idea when I wrote that “regardless of the outcome, I am going to be an emotional mess for a bit when it’s over,” exactly how true those words would prove to be), but I’ve written about where my head is now over on my other blog, Beacon & Joy.
Meanwhile, my mind is finally able to contemplate style again. For a few days there, it felt superfluous and unnecessary. But, deep down, I think that style and fashion (and food, and books, and art, among others) make life better.
I’m getting ready for a whirlwind trip for Thanksgiving to visit family. So I’m contemplating what I want to wear traveling. I love to feel chic and comfortable at the same time (and, therefore, I refuse to wear sweatpants or their equivalent). I also need layers to feel warm on flights.
And, by the way, my favorite layer these days is a long gray cardigan. It feels like a cross between a cardigan, a coat, and a robe. So, so delightful.
So this is what I have in mind. It is chic and cozy. Warm and cool, if you know what I mean.
