Soft cashmere for summer. I am definitely not packing all my cashmere sweaters away anytime soon. I will probably put my chunkier greys and blacks away until Autumn. However, my brighter and lighter tones will be staying in my wardrobe. There will be plenty of Spring and Summer days when a cashmere sweater or cardigan will come in handy. Cashmere knits are especially useful on a chilly Spring/Summer evening.
They always look good with trousers, however this year I will be experimenting and wearing them over a couple of my dresses thus creating a sweater/skirt combination.
The candy pink cashmere sweater I am wearing above is by WinserLondon. The style is taken from an Audrey Hepburn look. I admit being biased towards the colour pink however if this colour does not suit you the style is available in nine other colours.
I particularly like the fact that this sweater has a wide neckline which means that it can be dressed up for the evening as well as worn casually during the day. There is a matching cashmere wrap for the super luxurious look for that first class travel style!
The trousers I am wearing are also by WinserLondon.
Ruby red necklace several years old similar. Navy ankle boots old similar Nordstrom and MarksandSpencer

Hello Josephine! I live in the Houston TX area (USA). We have a shorter spring season and a longer summer season than your area so in March I’m already looking to the long summer and wanting to be prepared. The challenges I face are finding clothes with breathable fabrics. I’m also not fond of sleeveless fashion. Can you offer any general suggestions for a retired teacher who loves to travel, be active, and keep learning. I’m looking forward to your 2018 summer blog.
It has been such a long cold winter this year in Europe that it has been hard to think of warmer weather however I will shortly be getting round to more summer styles. Breathable fabrics are becoming more and more difficult to find as many Brands are using polyester fabrics but I will do my best.
That pink sweater is certainly your colour.
NEVER TIRE OF PINK ON YOU!
That outfit looks so comfortable as well as lovely. Almost swing style over the tummy, great for good weight but apple shaped me. Perfect for Australia’s coming winter. Thank you.
Yes you are right Lynne it is swing style. Most of my sweaters are now trapeze style which I find much more forgiving around the tummy area.
