My cashmere hoody in ‘safari’ has been on a little adventure of its own, soaking up the Mediterranean heat, taking in the scenery, dabbling in some local delights and generally providing me with some much needed shelter from the bitter aeroplane A.C.
Turkish delight & pretty trinkets…presents for the guys and girls back at the office; shoes, hats and sweet treats for everyone!
NAME: Justine Young
POSITION: Online Content Writer
UNOFFICIAL ROLE: Office clown
YEARS AT BRORA: 1.5 years
LOVES: “Why cashmere of course. Cheese, shoes, family time, online-shopping, and cocktails with the girls…exactly in that order!”
HATES: “Being cold!” (Said with a scowl).
BEST BRORA MOMENT: “I guess everyone else would say the time when I dramatically fell off my chair. I had a sore behind, but even I had to laugh; it was pretty funny”.
Not content with just a summer holiday to Mexico in July, an impulsive and fairly last minute need for a spring getaway took myself and my family to sunny Turkey. Whilst a city break to Istanbul was attractive, the promise of warm weather, evergreen mountainous views and turquoise blue waters made Marmaris a far superior choice.
Although not the typical climate you’d initially think suited to cashmere, a popular tourist haunt in Marmaris is the marina, located in the old town. Restaurants; both traditional and contemporary, sit alongside the seafront, and whilst you appreciate the cool sea breeze, it quickly becomes a bit nippy.
Always looking to stay warm and fearful of a strong, chilly gust of wind, I’m therefore never one to be without a cashmere comforter or two, and knew that the perfect vacation companion would be my beloved cashmere hoody.
It was for this reason that I stylishly carried ‘Henry’ – that’s what I call my cashmere hoody by the way – everywhere I went, just in case. Ideal when standing on the side of a mountain, taking in the fresh air and surrounding landscape, as well as posing for a twitter pic.
And if I still haven’t convinced you that I’m not entirely crazy, and that there is space in your suitcase for a bit of summer cashmere, at least you’ll find it a cosy way of relaxing on the plane; particularly when having a quick snooze, cashmere is the best way to do it!
