Dreaming of Cute Sweaters and Cooler Weather

I admit that it has been a beautiful summer. We have enjoyed many cookouts and our yard is dreamy. But at this point I can't help but start to think just a little of cooler weather and sweaters. I'm liking the look of cardigans lately although my girlfriend who is much more hip than I am says, "No."

Want to dream a little with me?

This red cardigan from Talbots caught my eye. Love the crispy white shirt underneath and the jeans.
I like the soft look of this Ann Taylor Loft sweater. Looks neat when you wear a tank underneath.

This JCPenney sweater is cute for transitional weather. In Oklahoma that would be until Thanksgiving.

Love this one above. It's on my list and it's from JCPenney. :)

I don't ever wear these longer sweaters because they are not so flattering on me. Love how they look though. This one is from JJill.

Just imagine hot chocolate, a sweater, and a chill in the air.

Oh, yes a girl can dream......makes me sweat just to think about though. I look forward to Nov. and Dec. when we CAN wear sweaters!! Those are cute ones, Stacey!


Kathryn said...

Yep...I'm looking forward to cooler weather, too. I love cooler weather clothes, foods (comfort), blankets, football.....LOVE IT!

Plus, I think cardigans will always be "IN". Great pictures!

Darlene said...

Cathy said...

If only we could wear those now!!! I am sooo ready for fall!!! It is just tooo hot for words!!!

I want cool weather!!!


Our weather here in Missouri has just turned really hot and humid. Our summer has been unusually cool here in Missouri where other areas of the country have just sweltered.

Your sweaters look very inviting because fall is my favorite time of the year.

Thanks for sharing.


April said...

Yes, I've had enough of this HOT weather, too! Bring on FALL!!!

Lisa said...

I JUST got done posting a blog entry about fall! How funny and timely! I'm craving sweater weather all of the sudden, too! I'm relieved to know I'm not the only one.


Carol said...

Cute, cute sweaters! I'm ready for fall weather too, it is without doubt my favorite season. I just went out to get the mail & there is not a breath of air stirring! My computer tells me the heat index is 112! :-(


Kathleen Grace said...

I love cardigans. They are so versatile and I think they are very flattering to a lot of shapes and sizes! I think I can wait a bit for the cold weather though:>)

Amber B. said...

You're speaking my language with sweaters and cool weather!! I was just thinking the other day, "I wonder when the stores will start putting out pumpkins??"

Sounds really good to me!

Amy said...

Hi Stacey,
I totally know what you are saying with thinking of fall. It is funny because I dream of warm weather all year and then when it gets to be August, I am always hoping that fall gets here fast. Love the sweater pictures. I could enjoy them all! Mmmmmm...hot chocolate sounds yummy too! Amy

Shelia said...

Hi Stacey! Oh, get those sweaters away from me! :) I'm hot just looking at them. I'm just teasing, because I really do wish it was cool enough to wear a sweater! Man, it's been so hot!
be a sweetie,
shelia :)

Hey Stacey... I am ready for all that fall stuff too, but I sure don't look that good in sweaters... LOL LOL


Jan said...

Hi Stacey, Just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog! I have become addicted to blog hopping!! I just love your blog, hopefully I will learn a few tricks to blogging.

We have had no summer in Kentucky. When fall time comes we wonder if it will be hot then. One can never tell anymore. The whole weather cycle is backwards. Blessings

I am a big Talbots shopper and so my favorite sweater is the red one. Very classic...with the white shirt and jeans...my favorite style.

I love summer, but I love winter clothes! I can't wait for "sweater" weather!

I join you, sweet friend, in looking to Fall and sweater weather! I rather missed summer this year. What cute sweaters you found. The red is my favorite but they are all wonderful. Ruffles...well...I can't resist them.
Thanks for sharing your look to Fall.
Hugs..and thanks for your sweet comment on my post..

Barbara said...

OH Stacey, How I look forward to a sweater, but for us in Texas, that could be Dec. if we are lucky. Roy and I are headed to Virginia in Sept and hope it will be a bit cooler there.


Shauna said...

I am right there with you. I'm officially tired of 90 degree days!

An Accomplished Woman said...

Oh that is so funny. I just started to look at the Land's End catalog and picked out a cute argyle sweater. You and I are thinking alike.


Just a little something from Judy said...

Cardigans, cooler weather,and hot coffee or chocolate...all things I love!! I was made for the Fall of the year. I like all the cardigan pictures that you shared. Since I am always "cool", I am a cardigan wearer, especially the beautiful ones that I am seeing this year. Great post!!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

I'm a sweater girl! I love 'em and I can't count how many I have. Probably need a new one though:) Have a great day! Twyla

Lisa said...

I can't do it Stacey! I'm sitting here having a hot flash as we speak.:(

Hi Stacey,
I'm one of those folks to loves the hot summer weather. This year in our area we have had a magical summer. Not too hot and rain about once a week for the gardens and farmers. Usually it's hot & dry. This is appreciated.

Love the red and white also and have you noticed the sleeves? Either psuhed up or short. I love a 3/4 length sleeve.

These are so pretty; something I rarely wear. I'm ready for cooler weather also.


Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Such a wonderful thought ... We had the teeny-tiniest cool breeze when we were walking the dog this morning, almost reminiscent of sweater weather. But a high of 98 today. I'll have to stay in the AC and look at your sweaters and dream! I love them all.

Love Ann Taylor and Talbots... classic looks that never go out of style. Good investment clothing..
