|Beginning to look like Autumn round the old homestead...|
Les weekends are about Getting Stuff Done. Grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning, gardening, grooming dogs, planning and writing blog posts, and keeping jeune monsieur* entertained. Of all of these the last is the most difficult, and often mentally and physically draining. (Just last night he suddenly changed his mind about taking a shower, and broke the shower door.) J.M. needs constant feedback, and as part of his current behavior therapy we have to be sure we're constantly reinforcing the good stuff. Le monsieur and I often tag team, otherwise we'd never get anything else accomplished! So my weekend outfits need to be simple, versatile, comfortable (and washable!) as well as pulled together.

The sweater is the Eileen Fisher wool mesh I picked up a couple of months ago, and have been wearing several times a week since. Worn over a silk tank, it's a great top when temperatures are fluctuating, as it breathes or insulates as needed. Similar shape in Merino wool here.
The scarf is from J.Crew. I found this one in the store, similar colors available online. I fell in love with the colors, which really pop against a darker top, and the abstract floral pattern mixes easily with stripes and other small prints. Especially when I'm on the go, I prefer to arrange scarves so they stay put and require no fiddling. This is a great tie to reduce the bulk of a bigger scarf, and stays in place beautifully.

2. Take one of the ends, pass it downward through the loop. Repeat.
3. Do the same with the other end.

*"Petit" monsieur no longer seems apt; he's as tall as I am now!
