Good morning. I am back from the hot, humid days of Florida and longing for cool sweater weather. It comes and goes here so it is a challenge to get dresses in the morning.
To me Fall is the beginning of tartan weather and the minute the thermometer drops I have my throws, sweaters, scarfs, and coats out and ready for use.
Pendleton is one of my favorite companies for tartan plaids and always reminds my of my grandmother. She had a few beautiful plaid skirts and blazers and she would wear them all winter long. The stylish, yet traditional combinations are a classic and can be worn by all ages. I have a collection of skirts, and blazers, some vintage and some new that I rotate all winter long.
In addition to the clothing I collect vintage tartan blankets and throws. Do you remember those beautiful blankets keeping you warm when you were a child?
In case you are not familiar with Pendleton here is a snippet of their history:
From the Pendleton site:
The history of Pendleton Woolen Mills is one of opportunity, exploration and innovation. British weaver Thomas Kay laid the foundation when he arrived in Oregon in 1863. His expertise lives on in Pendleton’s tweed, flannel and worsted wool apparel. Kay’s grandsons, the three Bishop brothers, opened Pendleton Woolen Mills in the early 1900s. They joined Kay’s weaving skills with stunning Native American-inspired designs in the Pendleton Trade blanket, a benchmark for beauty and quality for over 100 years. Family-owned and operated for more than six generations, the uniquely American story of Pendleton Woolen Mills continues today.
