Cable News

I saw this pillow by Nate Berkus for HSN that so emcompasses what I love about fall.  The air here in Boston has turned crisp and the smell of leaves wafts on every breeze making me wish A) I was buying some fly back to school supplies and B) completely overhaul my life to embrace all things cozy- rich colors, warm blankets, crackling fires, sweet cider and above all YUMMY SWEATERS!This pillow is a great way to bring fall fashion into your living room- with it’s preppy toggles an rich woven texture.


Ahhhhh, fall…..

You can even add a little cable knit action to that pumpkin spice latte with this cute knit cup cozy from Etsy!


I have to admit being a little surprised that the cream cable knit fisherman sweater was back in fashion.  I remember it being an 80’s prep staple on Nantucket, but never thought I’d see a $200+ version of it on the racks at Saks (I did, just FYI, by Elizabeth and James and it was FIERCE).  I will freely admit I am not an adventurous dresser- I feel like a total poser in most high fashion get ups, but I have made a comittment to trying to be a little more free and fun in my clothing.  So here is an outfit I wish I felt cool enough to wear when skipping through the leaves in the darling sidewalks of Waltham Street.

  1. I love the look of the cable knit pillow. I wanted one of my own, but couldn’t find one reasonably priced. I hit a local thrift store and found an XL cashmere sweater with a cable knit pattern and sewed my own. I’d love to find a chunky cable knit sweater like the one you showed here and make another.

  2. I am totally digging the Fall look. I don’t think I would want that big ole tree in my entry like that, but that’s just me. I really want those wedge booties. Thanks for the daily inspiration great blog guru:)

  3. Wow, if you don’t consider your clothing choices fun and adventurous, then I might as well hang it up and call in the MuMu parade! Anytime I see what you’re wearing, you look perfectly put-together, but not overly styled. And, to top it off, you have rockin’, yoga shoulders! Whatever formula you have, it works!

  4. Scared of the cable knit sweater because of Friday the 13th Flashbacks with Jason’s mom wearing one!!! I am such freak but Halloween stuff is everywhere and it just scares me! Love the pillow however!:)

  5. Great fall inspiration! I also love the whole back to school feeling – I would appreciate it SO much more now (ah the wonders of hindsight). Love Cable News (and clever title) – the Smythe coat is fabulous!

  6. I love that get up! And I wanna rock it, but I am afraid my thighs are on the fuller side and I should probably SKIP that look. I always wanted tall, slender legs….**le sigh!**
