Sweater Weather

My dear friend and very crafty maven Sarahrulu (of FHF fame) brought a lovely embellished cardigan to my attention this week. A simple crew neckline goes from “blah” to “ahh!” with pearls of all sizes and a sprinkling of rhinestones. You can see it here. Once I stopped swooning –  it took a bit – I began to day dream about my own fancy cardi. Swap out that buttery yellow for a fall-appropriate neutral and add a healthy dose of academic chic. Now we’re talking!

And so, as it always goes, I found myself at Joann’s last night… but not before I made a Target run. Snatched this heather grey Merona crew-neck cardigan for only $13! That’s a bingo! I’m not entirely certain what I’m doing with all these delightful craft supplies yet, but that’s never stopped me before.

Grey Days Ahead

While the temperature is still hovering around the low 80s here in Tennessee, recent mornings have greeted us with crisp air and a hint of a Fall breeze. Just in time for back-to-school season, too! I cannot wait for the real thing, so this taste of Autumn has been a real treat.

Recently, I’ve been dreaming of layered neutral tones. They add interest to monochromatic ensembles, and play up Fall’s more vibrant hues. I am especially fond of grey and navy. Since I’m very fair-skinned, heathered charcoals and deep blues are more flattering than say stark black and white. Here is what I’m looking forward to:
