Saturday Surprise

Despite the continued pandemic, Saturday, April 25th arrived with the sun shining bright and temps in the mid-fifties…the start of a weekend to relax, to do some grocery shopping, to bake some goodies, and to watch some Netflix…still, however, no trips to Bloomingdales…;-)

That’s ok, hubby and I are doing just fine with plenty to keep us busy – lots of routines, including our routine cocktail hours (yeah, that’s tequila in my hand)…here we were just returning from Star Market. After putting down our bags I checked the mailbox and received a pleasant surprise…

For me! A package from Bloomies!! Yahoo!! About a week or so ago I ordered a cashmere hoodie cardigan and had forgotten all about it…what made it even better is that on this day I happened to be wearing an outfit that was perfect for the sweater…

White jeans, an orange cotton teeshirt, and a navy print scarf…

Add another layer! The cardigan is loose fitting but not sloppy, just right for these understated working from home days…

Best of all, it was marked down from $198 to $99! Great price for a cashmere hoodie, right? It comes in many other colors – a pale pink, light yellow, and a pretty mint green…I am partial to dark neutrals, so I went with the navy knowing that it will go with lots in my closet…

Seven weeks ago the last thing I would have been shopping for is a hoodie cardigan …yet now, this style seems just right for both weekdays and weekends and I don’t see this relaxed style going away anytime soon…when it does, I will be happy to wear this with shorts on a cool summer night…while hosting our family Sunday dinners again…:-) 🙂 🙂

Stay well. Dress well. Better days ahead.
