Perhaps not for the desert, although those who camp out overnight
would require one as it does get chilly once the sun sets.
Sweaters in desert colors have however been on my radar recently.
Each year, especially around this time, the knitwear choices seem more
and more exciting. I'm definitely a sweater collector and probably
should never buy another, but when I see something that catches
my eye - a new style, a color I've been searching for, sumptuous yarn -
I have purchased this rust version because it checked all my boxes -
a color I've wanted for some time, mock turtleneck, dolman sleeves,
lighter weight for here in the south, and at H&M quite inexpensive.
Coats can be knits too!
This camel shade from H&M is a knitted fabric brushed on the outside
to a soft, lightweight and cozy fabric, ideal as a grab and go casual coat,
perfect for travel in the cooler weather. It is a classic cut, straight with
good pockets, always a must for me. It also comes in a light grey, and a
deep chocolate brown, and the price is awesome.
Yes, I did buy this one and I know I'll find it useful once the really chilly days
arrive and a longer coat feels better than a short jacket.
This collage displays some favorite things of the season.
We've just enjoyed two early mornings with dew and much cooler
temps - a fabulous feeling after such a long spell of heat.
But the desert calls and soon we'll be feeling the heat again. . . . . .packing
will not include hefty knitwear, perhaps just a classic cashmere cardigan
to throw over the shoulders evenings when on board the ship.
Best wishes for a lovely early Autumn weekend.
We're heading out of town for an overnight and a visit
to dear friends. . . . . . then back here to really get on with
all the things necessary to leave home and travel overseas. . . . . .
. . . . . . . it's hard work, take my word for it!
