Woolovers Merino Wool Long Cardigan – A Workhorse Item Of Clothing

I was going to dress up this fine long Cardigan with a sparkly dress. I decided against it and I’m showing a relaxed look instead.Plenty of time for sparkles. Not much time to finish your Christmas shopping! 
 Only a few day’s now until Christmas. The calm before the storm! A happy storm though! I don’t often get all of my eight grandchildren and children all under one roof at the same time!

I pondered for a while about how to show this cardigan off. A rich deep navy, it could be worn so many ways. Jeans and a T-shirt. An evening dress or trousers. I know it’s going to come in oh so handy. Take shopping for instance. Running around town and then you hit one of the indoor shopping centres and your boiling! This is perfect to drape over your shopping bag, rather than wrestling with a heavy coat. 

Today I’m on way to drop a present off to a friend of mine before I do my last minute shopping for the big day. I love how light the Merino wool is, yet still warm. A blank canvas to add whatever you wish, a cluster of brooches to dress it up or a belt to tie in with your outfit. This will also go great with my growing collection of silk scarfs.

Today I’m wearing these casual trousers and a silk loose sleeved top. I have added some Rose gold accessories.A long necklace and bangle. Tan bag and Brown boots creating a simple yet smart casual look. I love how deep the pockets are!
The long cardigan come’s in Navy or Black a 100% Merino wool. I like the fine weave of the wool. If you fancy Black it’s here 

I am so impressed with the Woolovers site. Every type of wool is available and the styles and colours are gorgeous. The Cashmere jumper that I posted about here is one of the softest I’ve had. I also have my eye’s on a few other items. I love this Aran Funnel neck here

Are you all ready for Christmas? or are you like me behind! I’d love to know what you think of the Coatigan too. Or tweet me at @vanityandmeblog

    I love a long cardigan coat! The extra length just makes it extra elegant, somehow. You'll get LOADS of wear out of this I'm sure. Happy Christmas, sweetie! xx

    Laurie, I am totally in love with that color combination of neutrals and blue. It is my total favorite and the way you styled it is just the impeccable and chic you. btw: after some serious think, for different reasons, I put up a google translate on my blog because you mentioned it. Will try to post bilingual as much as I can but bear with me please. Merry Christmas and a very Happy 2017 from Frankfurt! xo Sabina
