Sweater Weather

We are having an awesome sweater weather here in Minneapolis but we are not quite sure how long it's going to last for. The forecasts predict that the big chill is going to start this weekend but you never know with this weather. For now, we are enjoying what we have. The northern parts of Minnesota have already had their first snow fall and we might have ours this night or friday afternoon. However, I am not daunted by the looming snow fall forecast as I'm still enjoying every bit of this great fall weather which does not yet require heavy jackets or boots.

It was just the perfect day to wear my cream over sized sweater and this orange pants which has been in heavy rotation in my closet lately...:-).  In previous years, heavy sweaters like this could only be worn in the confines of the home for scrubbing and cleaning and doing other house chores but fast forward to Fall 2014 and you'll find out that oversized sweaters are trending. So, dig into that closet and bring out the goodies. Don't you just love it when fashion just keeps rotating?

Sweater: Old
Pants: J. C. Penny
Purse: Gifted
Earrings: Gifted
Sandals: Victoriassecret

Sometimes, I think this continuous rotation of trends can encourage hoarding; a situation where we don't want to give or donate items that we do not need at the moment with the hope that the fashion would cycle down again. On the one hand, it helps us save money because we do not have to go shopping again for those trends that keep coming back but again, if we hold unto those items with the hope that we will need them again, we're actually hoarding!...:-). So, what do we do???

In situations, like this, I always research my bible because it is the blue print for everyday christian living and my bible tells me that it is more blessed to give than to receive.

Acts 20: 35

I have shewed you all things, how that so laboring, ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive."

So, I'm glad that eighties and nineties trends are back and I'm glad that I do get to dress up my oversized sweaters this fall and I'm even more glad that my bible says it is better to give than to receive. Thanksgiving is around the corner, have you made a shopping or wish list yet? Are oversized sweaters on your list?
