I have something of a wool blanket/throw collection going - they're one of my favorite things to buy as souvenirs when in sheepy countries (Ireland, Scotland) and they're terribly nice to have around for cozy tv watching. So far I have a great purple tartan one, a purple/cream check one, and an Avoca red/grey tartan.
But now, I'm loving the offerings from Faribault Woolen Mill Co. I think it's my current love of buffalo check, probably inspired by being back in the mountains and countryside, where homey plaids and rugged leather and plush fur feel so much more appropriate than in the city.
The weather's been fairly mild of late, so there may perhaps be a few more outfit posts before the snow starts again. I had to share this one because it features my beloved Liberty shirt with a brand-new hot pink tie. Plus a new haircut!
I wasn't sure about mixing green + red, no matter how soon Christmas is coming, but I think with the grey and navy neutrals it works here. Plus I like the slightly retro feeling of the clogs and the cut-out top mixed with the more modern menswear of the cargo trousers and blazer.
Yesterday was my mom's birthday, so I spent the morning with her shopping and having fun. I'm taking advantage of the lingering fall weather before winter sets in to wear my shorts once or twice more, albeit with my cozy bomber jacket on top.
Happy birthday Mom!

Lack of posts lately is due to a little no-internet vacation I took to my family's cabin, then a few days of total laziness. This is the outfit I wore to drive down to the cabin, plus a stopover at my sister's.
I didn't actually need to go anywhere to pick apples, just up to the road on our property. But I wore a cute outfit anyway! Apple picking is way more fun getting them off a half-wild tree that's been left to over grow because it means using the tractor!
