Herringbone Jacket and a Winter Pullover

Herringbone weave always reminds me of men’s suits or coats. It’s a timeless pattern and this style is classic.


Black sleeves gives this jacket a vest look and I love the toggles (it also has a zipper).

I love that it’s not wool — 54% Cotton 46% Polyester. It has a hoodie and is machine washable. Besides being allergic to wool and wool being so itchy and uncomfortable, my daughter Jean explains why we don’t wear wool. Jean also has a fabulous post about wool alternatives.

Jacket from Ricki’s


My winter pullover has 3/4 length dolman sleeves and a detachable scarf which is reversible. It’s my 3rd year in a modelling show for Tan Jay and this is one of the tops I wore. It’s super soft 60% Cotton 40% Viscose.


It has an distinctive black lace print.

Version 223

Faux suede booties with knitted cuffs are warm and comfortable.

Version 3

Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    I also appreciate this print. And I love the design of your wonderful jacket. I love your French air, with the nice beret in your hair. The jersey is beautiful, the print and the nice design of the sleeves. Also, brighten your face. A nice casual look, a warm outfit (these boots I love) for such a cold country. Magnificent reflections on wool and on your ethical commitment to the clothes you wear. I hope to see more photos of your acting as a model soon. The real top model … with experience and wisdom.

      Thank you so much Josep-Maria, I’m glad you like it! I am wearing this jersey today. I have never worn fur knowing the cruelty of abusing and killing animals, but I imagined sheep frolicking peacefully on the hillside, rather than the reality of another cruel industry where animals are used for gain and profit.

      Have a happy week!
      ❤ carmen

    I have a jacket (similar to yours) and winter pants with this elegant herringbone weave pattern. I don’t wear them together like a suit, prefer to combine each of them with something black or red…
    You look so lovely with that beautiful pullover and black hat! Love those boots, they are elegant and seem to be very warm.
    Have a great weekend, meine liebe Freundin! Keep smiling, life is good even when the weather brings unfriendly cold…☺️
    ❤️ Ileana

  7. I love men items in ladies clothes – paradoxically they are very feminine and sexi. Great idea with sleeves 🙂 . I love your jumper – this scarf is a fantastic idea – I’ve never seen anything like this before and you look absolutely lovely in it. Amazing hat 😉 🙂 Have a good weekend – kisses – Margot 🙂
