I'm not going to take the pink hoodie you see layered under my coat in the photo above -- for me, a cotton hoodie offers too little warmth for its weight--but I wanted to try out the look after seeing how Sue worked it here (we have the same Uniqlo hoodie -- twins!). I like the layering, and I'm going to try to get out of the house with it in my own neighbourhood, either before I head off next weekend, or perhaps next year (can you believe that 2020 is just around the corner?)
I'm debating bringing jeans, but if I do, they'd be the pair you see above. Instead, I'm thinking of my new wool pants from J. Crew (in a Black Watch tartan). I've considered the wide-legged, cropped, knit wool pants you see in the photo above -- they're warm and they're ever so comfortable -- but in the end, I think they're probably too bulky/heavy.
The spruce green merino sweater you can glimpse in the photo below is coming along (I like that scarf with it, but not sure it does enough heavy lifting to make the cut).
If you do have any more time, I'd love you to read the comments on my last post, the one about apple pie. There are some rich memories there, one laugh-out-loud anecdote, a great recipe from a wonderful Croatian cook, our one-and-only Dotoressa. . . .
And if you're at all interested in volunteering to answer the Proust questionnaire to be posted here -- as A. in London did a few weeks ago, in the interest of nurturing our blogging community here -- please let me know by email (fsproutATgmailDOTcom).
Thanks for reading. If you have time to wave a turkey drumstick in my direction or lift a glass of wine toward me, the comments section is open. . . .Or mental telepathy will have to serve, for now. xo, f
