The second Fall creeps into the air I want to run out and buy a cozy stylish sweater. It's a very different experience than the sundresses and bikinis of Summer or the terror that grabs me when I think I don't have a warm enough coat for Winter. Fall sweaters are more like staying up late to watch a great movie by yourself, or like a perfect chocolate chip cookie, or a little like singing in the shower. Simple pleasures that make yourself smile.
I have been window shopping on the interwebs and found a few cute sweaters that I would love to have.
I don't know the labels or prices ( half the fun of window shopping) so I can't give links or props etc. for these photos. But the fact is, I want all of them.
I am pretty much a DIY gal, but knitting turns out to be outside my skill set. I took a knitting class when I was 10 years old and completed one slipper. I never got around to making the mate but I was ever so proud of the one. Then years later I was going to knit scarves for everyone for Christmas. It took me a month to complete one. I am a sloooow knitter. So the super comfy amazing home knit pull over is not coming from me. Sadly.
Once it's been cool and breezy for a couple of weeks, it's time to get down last years sweaters from the plastic bag thrown on the top shelf of the closet. I always think they will seem like old friends, stylish and Autumnal. Instead they look like some bums that crashed my Fall Fantasy party. I wore the heck out of those things! And I was dreaming of putting some major knitwear into action right away.
I do have one ace up my sleeve : I entered a $2500 shopping spree on Zappos.com. Whew. That should take care of all my seasonal needs. So, ... Zappos... um... I'll be your best friend ... ?
