Sweater & Shorts Weather

Yesterday was in the high 60s, which is sweater and shorts weather — an ideal pairing in my book. Sandals are a bold move but, hey, it’s May and we’re in quarantine. Don’t forget sunglasses, I’ve gone big.

Ray-Bans , Frame shorts, Celine slides. I have quite the collection of classic cashmere cardigans. WoolOvers’ run large and long, which is great with shorts. J. Crew’s are shorter and light-weight. I still have two cardigans from boarding school, nipped a few from my mother, saved the ones my daughters outgrew, and picked up my all-time favorite (perfect beige) at a church bazaar.

  • My favorite weather too! A fisherman knit sweater with denim shorts is the best.

  • How short are the shorts? They look awesome. The website says 5” inseam but that doesn’t seem right. They seem shorter.

  • I just measured the inseam and it’s 3″ — p

  • I just ordered the sunglasses..all you fault. 🙂

    Please tell me what “perfect beige” looks like in a cardigan…is it camel or ivory or sand?

    Also, I want to put a plug in for Monaghans Cashmere in Dublin. I have been purchasing there for years (last visit in August) and they carry the quintessential cashmere cardigans made in Scotland and they are divine. Maybe a perfect beige is next on my list from there!

    Thank you Preston. I love your look and mostly your sense of humor!

  • So sad J Crew just filed for bankruptcy!! Love everything you posted. The sunglasses are perfect! I like big ones for the coverage…lots of sun here in Northern CA! Happy Spring. Love, Pamela Taft

  • J Crew will restructure and stay open. Albeit smaller, which is probably good. They’ll find a buyer. It’s being called a “reset”.

  • Love the shorts with a sweater combination. Need to get some self-tanner on these legs, though! : )

  • Inspired by you, Preston, I wore Levi’s cutoffs and a new Saint Laurent cotton crewneck sweater for my major outing to Whole Foods yesterday. It felt nice not to stay in dance leggings all day.
