This is going to sound inane or at the least, obvious, but this winter I’ve been on the look out for sweaters. Check that — warm sweaters. In the past I would buy sweaters for how cute they looked only, never minding the fact that they weren’t warm at all. Deep regret would set in by mid December. And while cute is still high on the requirements, warmth and quality is up there too. While looking for sweaters, I found this Eileen Fisher one at Nordstrom on a whim and tried it on not thinking that it wouldn’t do anything for me. But it did. It’s so drapey(my fave) and so warm but not bulky — how is that even possible? And since I’m trying to make lasting purchases here for winters to come I went with a shade of sweater I’ve never tried before. If I’m going to be cold this winter, might as well make it colorful right?
And I know I’ve got it tucked into a skirt here, but the drape is so pretty with jeans. That’s for next time though. No wait– that’s for Thanksgiving. A drapey, soft sweater is meant for (overeating / napping / overeating again) the holidays.
