Fall Prep

November 5, 2013

I love the little luxuries in life (who doesn’t?!)… and a cashmere sweater and some sparkle never hurt anyone – enter my prep inspired weekend wear…

Cashmere Sweater and Sparkle Top

These jeans have been my new go-to and I love that they seem to dress up a more causal look.  I also scored this men’s sweater and couldn’t be happier with the cozy fabric and forgiving cut (fall foods always result in me having to pull out my “roomier tops”… darn those pumpkin baked goods!)

Tory BurchI also am a huge fan of this Tory Burch Satchel.  It is the perfect size (can hold my camera along with my standard “purse necessities”) and has a removable strap which is great for when you need an extra hand 🙂

How to Clean a Cashmere Robe

October 10, 2013

Cashmere RobeOne of my favorite gifts of all time? My cashmere robe.  It is one of the most decedent items I own and feel so luxurious every morning I get to put it on.  (tip: gentlemen – take note with the holidays coming up wink wink).

The only downside with cashmere is it is slightly high maintenance… or so I thought.  But look no further! You don’t have to shell out $$ to dry clean your cashmere robe (or sweaters/socks/tops)… you actually can clean it at home.  Here is how to:

1. Wash out your sink or bathtub so that it is clean.  Fill with cold water.

2. Fill up water with a cashmere washing agent or mild detergent – ie Woolite or The Laundress Cashmere Wash (I used 3 cap-fulls).

3. Place garment in tub and fully submerge into water.

4. Gently knead and work detergent into the fabric. Make sure not to stretch or pull (cashmere is very delicate and you don’t want to disfigure it).

Detergent5. Let soak for 15 minutes.


6. Drain bathtub and refill with fresh, cold water (I used the showerhead attachment to rinse out the fabric).

Drain Bathtub7. Let soak in clean water and swish fabric to fully remove any soap.

8. Drain tub again and gently ball material to squeeze excess water out. Layout robe between towels on a drying rack or table (I did this outside, because a lot of water was still in the fabric).

Towel Dry9. Let robe fully dry… then cozy up in it with your favorite cup of tea… happy fall!
