Cozy Sweater and Trousers

Today’s look is a casual weekend outfit, and in my case it was for a trip to Benihana with the kids. To be honest I am not a fan of hibachi, to me the food is barely edible, but Tom thought it would be fun for Adam to see the whole production. However, it turns out he wasn’t all too interested, and the whole time we were saying things to get him to tune in. Like ‘ooh did you see that?!’ or ‘How cool! A volcano out of onions!’ to which he simply replied ‘cool.’ I think that means I am officially not cool anymore. Once your child gives you a pity reply, you are no longer cool. Sophia was semi-interested, but I’m not sure if she was really just looking at the overhead lights. Oh well, at least I have a few more years to be cool in her eyes…

Which got me to thinking, what makes something ‘cool’ or ‘in’ fashion? Is it simply because it was on the runway or some celebrity was seen wearing it? I don’t believe that anymore. I say ‘anymore’ because there was a time in my life where all I needed to know was someone cool wore something and that made it cool for me. Happily, I’ve grown out of that stage. To some extent the runway determines what is cool but what you see on the runway can be interpreted in many ways so really, what is interpreted is what is cool, and who is doing the interpreting these days? Editors? Bloggers? Your next door neighbor? Yes, yes, and yes. The point is the days are gone when one thing was ‘in’ fashion. Fashion is so fast now that it has actually become slow – like watching NASCAR cars racing or looking out the window in an airplane – at any given time anything can be in. You could be ahead of the next big trend by simply not changing your style one bit. Food for thought…

Todays look features a cozy sweater from Ann Taylor’s Fall lineup. As in my last post with Ann Taylor, this one is a wool and cashmere blend, making it super luxurious and so warm.

I found these Vince pants (on sale now!) and fell in love with the cropped fit, which is the length I prefer for most of my pants, because it looks great with a flat or a heel, a boot, sneaker, or sandal. For me, having options is always cool.

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
