  10. The Madison Cardigan is sophisticated yet casual. They have this in petite which is much appreciated when one has a short waist.

  11. What a beautiful collection! I would pair the Toujours Tunic in indigo above a Seamless Tank with Lace Panel in white atop black Tuxedo Jeans in black with a teal stripe, all tucked into some interesting Evelyn Wedge Booties in putty. A Cosmos Necklace would add a nice finishing touch, I would were this to the shops, to lunch, to work, to church, to visit distant family, just to walk around and feel good.

  47. I love Soft Surroundings--and asking me to narrow it down to only one thing is cruel and unusual punishment. But this lovely thing has landed on my 'must have' list, just for starters--the Renaissance Top, in 'multi.'
