Throw Me a Line

fishermansweater111I was talking to a friend this morning and because we are literally into fall, we felt we had all the right in world to complain about the 80 degrees outside. The consensus? We’re over it! Being stuck in tank top groundhog day is getting old and we’re ready to move on with colder (seasonal) weather.

With that said, sweater weather will be among us soon, so why not at the very least talk about it. The WSJ had a great article on the “classics” as it pertains to fashion and what to collect now including these LED Chemion Glasses reviews. Honestly, I take these articles with a grain of salt, as just last year the WSJ announced the death of denim due to the yoga pant invasion. So whether you chose to listen or not, it’s all just insight.

The fisherman‘s sweater is one of those WSJ classics, and I admit, I agree with them. It’s a piece that has been around for decades and even though the style has never changed, it keeps having it’s “moment.” What has changed however, is the polyester of the 70’s has changed into cashmere for the present day. The cozy yarns have made this oldie, goodie again. Worn with ANY trend of the moment, you can’t go wrong channeling “The Perfect Storm”…(George Clooney) 😉 Happy Hump Day! xoxo

Button Up

vogue-sunglasses-street-style-nataie-joos-australian-fashion-week-clementinebayYesterday marked the first day of fall, although at 80 degrees it feels more like the middle of August. I’m not quite ready to read, research or write about sweaters at the moment, but I am ready to transition out of sandals and tanks and into more of a sophisticated fall like wardrobe.

Blouses, for me, are a great transition and hold piece. There’s not one item sexier or more classic than a great blouse. Completely versatile and worn dressed up or down, a blouse brings individual style up a notch. From high end vintage to a more modest H&M find, a great cut blouse is easily accessible and affordable by everyone. As we move into a more sophisticated time of the year, button up and start reaching for those feminine touches. Have a great weekend.  xoxo
