Are you a go with the flow type of girl? Do your expectations of Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart go beyond a night that involves a six-pack of beer that you wrote love notes on, a pizza, homemade cupcakes, and perhaps a movie and popcorn? If not, then I’d say you’re the causal, fun girl. You’re most comfortable in a comfy sweatshirt, broken in jeans and cowboy boots! Your idea of lingerie is a pair of boy shorts and an old wife beater tank! You feel sexy and romantic mostly when you and your man can smile and laugh together! Enjoy the day! xo Robin
My obsession with the fisherman sweater started way back…when my mom hand knitted a gorgeous button up wool version for my father! I realized how cool it was to rock his oversized sweater with my broken in Levi’s, and Timberlands boots (it was the early 80’s give me a break here)! My obsession resurfaced on a recent buying trip were I had the pleasure of meeting the Branigan’s, a father and son duo straight from Ireland, who are manufacturer’s of hand-woven capes, sweaters, and other yummy wool pieces straight from the Emerald Isle. My chat with the Branigan’s gave me a full history of the fisherman sweater…the wool kept the fisherman warm and dry, the waters were rough and often these men were lost at sea and their sweaters helped identify who they were as each family had their own stitch! This only made me appreciate these sweaters that much more. Sooo…my Monday Must Have…A fisherman Sweater! But no longer the kind you pair with jeans (well still love that look!). But let’s take it up a notch!
