|I've been looking for an excuse to bake a cake for weeks now. Since the hot summer months are over and there are so many flavorful fruits currently in season, I figured it would be the perfect time to bake a fall inspired cake. And lucky for me (and him), it just so happens to be my dad's birthday next week. He gravitates towards baked goods with a fruit component so when I saw this recipe I knew it was right up his alley. I haven't had the chance to go apple picking (yet), so I cheated and used store bought organic applesauce. Regardless, the cake was deliciously moist and the cream cheese frosting balanced out the spices perfectly. Next time I bake this I may even consider leaving out the frosting and serving it for breakfast.|

While parting ways with my summer clothing and re-introducing fall knits back into my closet, I have been faced with the realization that i don't like any of my sweaters. They are either ill-fitting, too worn out or not the right shade. Why I am just figuring this out I could not tell you. I have been browsing through shops but cant seem to find anything that I like. My efforts have now been reduced to online shopping in the hopes of finding a few key sweaters to even out my (lacking) fall wardrobe. Does anyone else periodically go through completely unnecessary "I hate everything in my closet, it's the end of the world" freak outs?
Here's what has caught my eye:
|classic, crisp and cable knit. boom.|
|this gem is perfect. it also happens to be out of stock |
(and now begrudgingly out of mind)
|slouchy sweater for a laid back saturday|
|this swiss dot is sold out. onto the next...|
|love fair isle sweaters, always have, always will.|
