There’s no place like home. Well, that’s what I’m telling myself on this jetlagged Monday morning.
There is always such excitement around a planned trip. When it comes together beautifully and you can’t stop thinking about afternoon Aperol spritz drinks, diving into crystal clear water and getting lost in history, you know the only cure will be planning next year’s escape.
And that’s just what we’ll do once the dust settles and the credit card breathes again.
In the meantime, it’s back to regular programming on the blog. It seemed fitting to kickstart that by featuring an Australian label that I incorporated into my travel capsule wardrobe.
Sassind – designed in Melbourne – is just over a year old but from the very first time I was introduced to it via a girlfriend, it was love.
Here were were quality, ethically sourced, classic pieces for every season – from cotton jerseys to linens, merino and cashmere as featured in this post.
I first introduced to you the label via this dress (which I re-purchased in a smaller size for this trip because it’s just so damn versatile). Sassind also formed the foundation of my inflight outfit – I wore these leggings, longline cardi and striped tee and packed this oversized wrap for keeping me extra cosy on the flight over before changing into the dress for “summer leg”.
This cashmere poncho featured here is from the sassind autumn-winter 2017 injection to the collection.
This particular piece may not be in everyone’s budget but it represents good value for cashmere if you’re looking to invest in a quality piece that will serve you well for many winters to come.
It’s so incredibly soft to wear, completely non-scratchy and drapes beautifully over your outfit. Like wearing a wrap or a cape, the key to nailing this look is contrasting the volume of this style of piece with a streamlined bottom – skinny jeans or leggings. I’ve also added a pop of colour with this woven cotton shawl from the collection.
This is a piece that will never date. If the oatmeal colour is not for you then it’s also available in snowy grey marle (light grey) and asphalt (charcoal).
So tell me, do you love a luxe knit? And asking for a friend … how does one pretend that it’s still hot and sunny? And someone make
me that friend a Spritz this afternoon?
