Long work days require versatile clothing. When I get dressed each day for work, I always strategically plan the, ‘what if’ and ‘where will I be plan’ in order that I have the right things with me for that day. One of my favorite movies, One Fine Day, had Michelle Pfeiffer pulling life off as a single mom with a bag that had everything in it to make her day, no matter what motherhood threw at her and I can so relate! My bag of tricks starts out with a bit smaller of a bag, but some very similar tricks, and a clothing staple in my wardrobe that is Cariloha – Stay Cool, Wear Bamboo!® The bamboo clothing line is sensational and like no other than I have tried, if you remember, I showed you a black long sleeve piece in December.
Cariloha bamboo is twice as soft as cotton, wears well, washes well and offers a coolness even kinder than cotton by 3 degrees less. Bamboo wicks moisture away from your body and it is naturally an antibacterial, as well as hypoallergenic. I have to tell you when I wear a piece of clothing from Cariloha it is like wearing cashmere against my skin, because it is that soft.
As I had mentioned, in a day, my schedule jumps all over the place from work to play and I have to go with it. I pack this piece up in my bag or car and off I go! I might start out in a basic work tee that matches my outfit in the morning, but I know that by the end of the day I will be in meetings, and into a hockey rink. The Cariloha Kyle Wrap in Eggplant is the perfect ‘go-to’ piece in my wardrobe because it is soft, versatile and easily dresses my outfits up or down! I love that it is not bulky and it keeps me stream-lined as the cut is a flattering, A-line cut and it follows the contours of my body, but it does not add anything to my figure! The unique Slub-jersey patterning is extremely popular and the color matches with just about anything! Sometimes I add a soft bamboo scarf from Cariloha to the neckline and other times its just the Kyle Wrap and a tee!
The Kyle Wrap looks great with jeans, shorts, skirts and ankle length pants, it is really a great piece that lends itself well to any outfit. I wash mine on Gentle in the wash and I hang it to dry, and each time it fits just the same as the first time I tried it on. The sizes run true to scale, so order what you are. There are no buttons on this, so you don’t have to worry about buttoning up and feeling squeezed.
