Fall List #1: Fisherman Sweater

In an attempt to curb my spending this season, I'm forcing myself to list what it is I actually need/want. 

First, a confession:  I don't actually know how to dress for autumn anymore.  To think about sweaters, layering, autumn jackets (and ultimately winter coats) is such a foreign concept, which is why I had a little freak-out this evening as I walked through Georgetown and noticed that my linen shorts and thin cardigan were no longer sufficient for the cooler temperatures.  This is what living in perpetual summer for the past few years has done to me.

But I should start thinking about what I need for the new season. 

For starters, I need a sweater and I've set my eyes on a fisherman sweater.  I remember years ago, when I still lived in Portland, I found one at a vintage store.  It was a little boy's sweater, ivory, shrunken, with four dark brown, leather-covered buttons.  I wore it all the time until it frayed and was ruined.  

Even Ethan has a fisherman sweater, which would be super slouchy on me. We, however, left it at the Fraser mountain house.

In any case, I am leaning towards a more shrunken fit.


  1. I was all ready to order the L.L. Bean Signature one and would have been perfectly content, but then I just HAD to do a little browsing and saw this perfect Acne one. Now I can't UN-see it (or bring myself to order a lesser option). Ugh.,default,pd.html

  2. Ughhh. I should not have seen that.

  3. I'm the same way when I want something, but $300 for that sweater!? That's almost another pair of Mars.

    1. I know, it really is just silly. I am trying that app Hukkster with this sweater and I will let you know if the price drops dramatically :)

  4. oh i love it. that first look is amazing - such a cute mix of tomboy and girly-girl.
