Fall Fashion

I am a lover of sweaters. Oh, and I love cozy socks too. Um...and scarves. Can't get enough. A theme going on here? A reason that I adore the cooler temperatures? I suppose so...it would look a little weird if I was wearing a thick sweater, warm and colorful socks and a long fringed scarf. In July. Just sayin'. Not that I haven't done weird things before. Because I have. Maybe I shouldn't divulge that. Forget what I just said.

1. All the online catalogs have their Fall clothes now.

2. I like looking at them.

3. I like changing the sweater colors on the models.

4. Interactive catalogs are fun that way.

5. It's kind of like a new version of Barbie dolls.

6. I digress.

7. I am now wanting a new cardigan.

8. Except I want to look like the model wearing it in the catalog.

9. The less fluffy version of me.

10. The one that is perfectly coiffed.

11. The one with no stains on her shirt.

12. The one who looks like she slept well.

13. The one who has on make up.

14. Sigh.

15. I also want a pair of boots.

16. I have my eye on a hot pink pair that I saw at Tractor Supply.

17. Hey, they have some good stuff there.

18. My husband said he would deny knowing me if I bought those.

19. And wore them.

20. Hmmppfff. He has no fashion sense.

21. I'm getting them.

22. And I'll wear them everywhere.

23. They will eventually grow on him. Or not.

24. After all hot pink mud boots are happy boots.

25. And who wouldn't love that?


  1. I like the summer (to an extent), but I have been known to curl up on the couch in sweats, socks and with a blanket in the middle of August just out of wistfullness for the cooler autumn months.

  2. I love cooler weather, but not TOO cold, so it's a good thing I live in the south. Most winter days here just entail throwing on a jacket over your sweater, or maybe just a sweater over your turtleneck.

    And I say, go for the hot pink boots. If they will make you happy, then you deserve them. And I am sure your kids would be mortified too, but, oh well!

    You can't see, but if you take a big whiff, I am raising a 'mug' of steaming apple cider spiced with cinammon and nutmeg, toasting "here's to fall!"
