Smythe Rifle Blazer

I will replicate this outfit, everything about it is just so classic.

the Lands’ End cashmere crewneck sweater

Tall cashmere, I cannot get enough of it. At less than two hundred dollars a pop, the Lands’ End crewneck version is not a terribly expensive indulgence. Never pay full price for cashmere at Lands’ End as it does regularly go on sale. Yes, I have only purchased the sweater while on sale; my eagle eye is always on the lookout for discount cashmere by default, regardless of brand.

I am wearing a size medium tall in this sweater.

the Smythe rifle blazer

There is nothing like a Smythe blazer. The tan leather rectangular elbow patches, shoulder, and underarm trim are just *chef’s kiss* details on this rifle blazer. While pricey, Smythe is one of those brands that I usually do not mind splurging on due to the craftsmanship.

I am wearing a size sixteen in this blazer.

the J.Crew midi double serge wool skirt

The a-line cut of this skirt is especially boss. J.Crew would be genius to continue producing skirts in this shape and length because it does not require a tall size range option and as such, tall women would also shop it. It is a return to form to the J.Crew of the aughts, prior to the sequin, leopard print reign of Jenna Lyons.

In addition to the navy, I bought the cream shade immediately after I received the navy one and tried it on, as it had been restocked in my size. I have and previously wore the navy and cream (tall size range) mini versions of the skirt; as I now have my hands full chasing around a toddler, it may be time to retire the higher hemlines.

Here is hoping for yearly update including colorways in this skirt.

I am wearing a size twelve in this skirt.
