A lot of years, it doesn’t really get sincerely cold in our neck of the woods until around the first of the year.
This year is different. We’ve had a couple of really cold days recently and for the first time in a long time, we’re having “sweater weather.” The weatherman says we have a whole lot more coming up.
When I started hearing the forecast for the upcoming weather, I knew I was going to probably have to invest in a few pullover sweaters as my wardrobe has been lacking in them for a while now. I mean, yeah, I have a few cardigans and a couple of pullover sweaters – one from Old Navy and a couple from Lane Bryant. But, what I wanted was just a place to get some regular pullover sweaters or at least that’s what I thought.
As I was thinking about getting a few new sweaters, it dawned on me that…uh, I don’t really know where to get really great sweaters. Which made me wonder…just how long has it been since we had a need for sweaters for any length of time?
On average, it’s usually about 55 – 65 degrees during the day this time of year. This week, we’re heading toward the low to mid 40’s. Not what we are used to!
Since I knew it was coming, I started searching. What I found was that sweaters sure have changed a lot since the last time I went intentionally looking for them. I’m delighted that it turned out to be WAY more than I thought it would be!
Here’s my Top 10 list of favorite sweaters for the season:
- 10. Nordstrom
- 9. Ann Taylor
- 8. Ashley Stewart
- 7. Talbot
- 6. Universal Standard
- 5. Dillard’s

- 3. LL Bean
- 2. Target
- 1. Macy’s – similar to the one that I have on here; Leggings – Walmart; Jewelry & Handbag – Cato’s; Shoes – A.N.A.
Hope all of you are off to a great Christmas Season!
