Chunky sweaters and funny faces

I love me a chunky Fall sweater.  But at a diminutive 5'2" and 95 lbs, I have to be careful with these things lest I end up looking like this:

Don't get me wrong.  I actually totally dig the Olsen twins' style.  And I think it's especially impressive how they can wear things that you'd think would only look good on tall, lean modelesque types, or not look good at all, period, and make it work.  But uh, me no likee the above.  I'll just leave it at that. 

Here are a few sweaters I wouldn't mind owning right now:


Funktional Cozy Long Cardigan, available here



Tim Hamilton Women's Redux Sweater


Tsumori Chisato Knit Pocket Cardigan, available here


Y's Long Hooded Zip Cardigan, available here

It's pretty iffy as to whether #1 and #4 would work on a frame like mine, but guess you never know unless you try! 

One thing on my Fall "to buy" list.  I know this bag has been around for a while now, but I really appreciate the simplicity of Clare Vivier's designs.  With the exception of a few bags, I'm not really into broadcasting what I'm wearing, whether it be low end, high end, whatever.  Love that her stuff is still affordable and beautifully made and will pretty much go with everything.

On a separate note, feeding the nuggets solids for the first time was pure hilarity.


Not so much

Pure disgust

Why mom?  Why??

No more solids, thank you!
