Now that Autumn has arrived, having a comfy sweater is crucial. It is a long season and you don’t want to pull out the winter coat too early in the game – which is why I am a big fan of the bulky knit sweater. It’s great to throw on for morning walks to school and I keep it on if the house is cold and we’re too cheap to turn the heat up.
I’ve been eying Cowichan sweaters for a while and a few months ago when I popped into the local yarn store to pick up some yarn for my mom, I spotted this:
Thinking happy thoughts: Some of my favourite people were born in the fall, you can wear pants but still hold off on the socks, it is the best season for running, you can layer for style but not necessarily necessity, wine switches from white to red, and it is pretty. No doubt.
People, it is time to embrace the new season and get things done. Trust me, if you write a list, you are more likely to make it happen. Here is my feeling it. falling for it. fall wish-list. The rules are simple – it started October 1 and ends December 21. G’luck!

Autumn is here and we are holding off on turning on the thermostat. I bet we are not the only ones who treat this annual ritual as a game… how long can you bear it? To participate, you need to be strong and you must bundle up. With this in mind, I gathered up some fall-inspired fashion (aka my current wish list) that makes it almost okay to accept the brisk temperatures.
But before I fill up my fictional online baskets, have you heard about a capsule wardrobe? I landed on this site and the idea intrigues me. Should I? Could I? I know there are clothes in my ‘closet’ that I’ve hung on to but do no wear and since I don’t actually have a real closet, it has become more evident that I am waisting valuable real estate. I think a capsule wardrobe would be a great way to minimize what I own and then decide what I really need. Here is Unfancy’s fall capsule wardrobe. Nice, right? If I decide to give this a go, I will be sure to let you know. In all honesty, I think I need to focus more on purging … not purchasing.
