Sweater Weather


It’s not quite cold enough for jackets or coats yet here in Atlanta, but it’s the best kind of weather for cute and cozy sweaters. And if you ask me, that’s my kind of weather.

Well, I have to say that here at the James household, we are in full holiday mode. However, because we live in Atlanta, the weather is not. Ha! But as someone who grew up in Pittsburgh, I am not complaining about these 70 degree days in December. So while there has only been a few days here and there to wear my winter coat, it is very much so sweater weather in these parts.

Enter this soft and cozy sweater from Target. The color is absolutely my cup of tea – hello orchid! – and it fits over this ever growing belly. Quite honestly, the sweater selection at Target right now is fantastic. They have this same one in black and compared to the fast fashion alternatives, the quality and prices are better.

Excited to be starting a new week and month alike. Before we know it, 2018 will be here and I will have a second child. I still can’t wrap my head around that. November was quite the whirlwind. I didn’t get to post as much as I was so busy with major changes here at the house (that are still going on) and traveling for Thanksgiving. But I’m happy to be getting back into the rhythm of things. A few changes here and there are coming for the blog that I can’t wait to share with you guys. Stay tuned.
