the fisherman sweater

i’ve had my eye out for a fitted fisherman sweater for awhile now, and recently picked this one up from madewell. it’s part of alexa chung’s line. i really don’t understand her appeal most of the time, since she always looks so messy; but, i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t interested every time that hipster ragamuffin comes out with a new madwell collection. this sweater is very thick and well-made, and i like the short length for wearing it with high-waisted jeans or skirts.

not much else to say today. i’m completely brain-dead/exhausted after spending the weekend with my mom and her twin sister in NYC. our personalities are polar opposites- they just love to be busy, chatty, and surrounded by people. for instance, when getting on the subway, i would tell them “let’s walk down to the next train car, it seems more empty.” and my mom would say “why would we do that?! everyone must be in THIS train car for a reason! let’s stay where the action is!”. they were making new best friends all over the city. 

i had a great time with them, but now feel like i want to shut myself in a dark, quiet room for a few days.
