{style inspiration: pale & pretty neutrals}



. . . not quite december yet, and already things are beginning to move along at an even more dizzying pace than usual, with upcoming soirées, dinner parties and gift exchanges, boxes tied with ribbon and a feeling of magic in the air, and in the midst of all the running around, have been practically living in luxuriously soft cashmere cardigans, belted, and perfectly paired with cozy scarves and festive gold fingernails . . .

I am so very jealous of all your upcoming soirees... I have very few - and therefore very few gifts to make (or buy!)

When packing for Thanksgiving, I realized that my cashmere sweaters are in bad shape, and it is time to get some new ones! Any suggestions for where to get some?

Hello lovely,

I have to say this season I have been more into neutrals than any other year! I am just dying over beiges, soft browns, whites, and camel...these photos you have provided sum it up PERFECTLY. I also think that first photo has to be the most gorgeous Christmas décor I have ever seen!
