It’s Sweater weather! Gorgeous sweaters, a Fall nail trend, cosy books, a Christmas house tour and more on Weekend Meanderings.
Good Saturday morning friends, it’s time for weekend meanderings with Kim and Juliet.
I’m tired, as I type this I am sitting in bed with a cup of cocoa and three dogs. I think I may have a “lie in” this morning and start the day slow. Like many I have been glued to the computer catching up on all of the events surrounding Queen Elizabeth II funeral.
What an amazing sight to see. Hundreds of thousands of people standing in line for hours and hours and hours, in the rain and the heat and the cold to say goodbye. There are old, young, babies, soldiers, men, women, people in wheel chairs, and with walkers, of every nationality from the world over united in grief and love for the Queen. We will never see anything like this again and I find myself drawn to it again and again.
On another note, it’s almost sweater weather and today on weekend meandering I have some gorgeous sweaters, a Fall nail trend, cosy books, a Christmas house tour and more.
Sweater Weather~It’s Time to Get Cosy
Autumn officially begins with the autumnal equinox on September 22, just 5 days away. I wish Mother Nature would just flip a switch and cool things off but unfortunately that is not the way things work. According to the Farmers Almanac some of us will experience a cooler than normal fall and others the opposite, hotter than normal. Ok, hopefully I am in the cooler then normal zone because I am hot and I am tired of being hot.
This week I organized my closet and moved my summer things aside to make room for my warmer fall and winter clothes. One of the first things to emerge from the closet is my sweaters. I LOVE sweater weather! Cool crisp days that are not cold enough for a jacket but instead call for a t-shirt or blouse with a cardigan or pull-over.
While technically a blazer this beautiful camel “sweater” is one of my all time favorite pieces I found this fall. It is a classic piece that you will have and wear for years.
One more for the road! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sweater!
Caring for your sweaters so that you have them for more than one season is important.

Speaking of Sweaters, Mug Sweaters
If you would like to make a sweater for your mug to keep your cocoa, coffee or tea warm, here is an easy diy.
According to the “experts” the new neutral for fall nails is cocoa? You know me, I love cocoa and hot chocolate in a cup, but I’ve never thought of cocoa on my nails. Milky latte, rich chocolate, deep espresso are just of few of the shades you will see this year. What do you think?

Stoffer Home Christmas Tour
Are you a fan of interior designer Jean Stoffer? Me too! Every image I see on Pinterest takes me down a rabbit hole of beautiful design. The good news is that if you live in Michigan or feel like taking a trip to see her incredible design first hand, she just announced the dates for the Christmas Home Tour!
