Like I said on Monday, summer is officially officially over in Seattle. It’s dreary, rainy and cool. I’m wearing my slippers for the first time since spring, and last night I broke out my winter PJs. This morning, when I drove my husband to his bus stop, it was so overcast that I had to turn the headlights on.
I love it.
Everything is quiet and everyone is getting ready to snuggle up for the cold, damp months. My yard is getting greener. And, I can start wearing my thick winter sweaters and wool socks. Heaven.
It’s the perfect time of year for wearing oversized, stripey sweaters. Sweaters like these:
I love the feminine detail of the wide V-neck on this sweater. Paired with the super-casual shape and wide stripes- I think it might be perfect.
on the beach by Isabell KraemerI love this sweater, too. The narrow/wide stripe pattern is great! It reminds me of an old-fashioned French sweater, but slightly more modern. (I’d probably wear it with jeans, though. It’s too cold for shorts.)
Clarke Pullover by Jane RichmondThis sweater is high up on my list of Favorite Sweaters I’ve Never Made. It just looks so stinking cozy. I love the huge stripes, and the band of color across the belly. Too cute. Someday, sweater, you will be mine.
Tea with Jam and Bread by Heidi Kirrmaier
I’m off to make a pot of tea and put on a second pair of wool socks. Yay fall!
How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
As a lifelong Pacific northwesrerner, I love the cooler temperature and am hoping it doesn’t change with surprise hot weather.
Still hitting 90 during the day here. Typical Southern Indiana summer, not far off of your Illinois memories. Hoping the eminent move 3 hours north, to Indy, will mean cooler temps, but know it won’t. Drats!
LOVE on the beach! That is going to be my first sweater!
Sunny in L.A. but a break in the heat–only 85-90 instead of the triple digits we’ve had for awhile-a slight change but much welcome!
