Is it just me or do the holidays just make you want to dress cozy all of the time? It’s finally getting cold enough here that I can wrap up in cozy sweaters or sweater capes like this one. Which by the way, may or may not be an early Christmas present from my sweet husband. (Daily emails with links work! I repeat, daily emails with links and photos work!) I’ve had my eye on this Eileen Fisher one for a while and I think it’s because I’ve been really drawn to this kind of look lately — cozy but structured. And while this looks like a normal sweater cape it’s actually a small blanket of chic. Sure to the outside eye I look pulled together but I’m so comfortable in this wrap that I’m actually on the edge of a nap. And it’s only 10 am. Now that’s a good sweater cape.
Speaking of holidays, we are officially 9 days out before Christmas. I’m 30% there as far as gifts go. Yes, that’s a low percentage considering how close we are but it’s not that I’m a procrastinator on purpose. It’s that I can’t decide on what to give so then I procrastinate. I’ve got carts open all over the internet right now but I’m just a little unsure on a few people in my life. Mainly the little people in my life. My nephews are getting to the age where I have no idea what they are talking about when they explain toys and what’s cool to me now. My eyes literally glaze over — all of these new terms, toys, and games. I never thought I’d see the day when I had no idea what cool was, but we are here. Do you think they would like a sweater cape for Christmas? Ask your 6 and 8 year old boys and get back to me, mmkay?
