b. chyll




Growing up I lived for the back-to-school September issue of Seventeen Magazine. I treasured (and still do) the autumn season and all the beautiful clothing. It’s ironic that autumn is my favorite time of year, as we usually missed that season altogether growing up in Houston. I would pray for cool weather so that I could wear the sweater, suede boots or wool skirt that never saw the light of day. On a few occasions my prayers were answered, if only for a few early morning or late day hours.

I still look forward to buying fall clothes, however, living in Scotland it’s now more of a necessity than a luxury. Well, I guess that depends on your definition of necessity, my husband would almost certainly argue that my shopping habits lean more towards the luxury end of the spectrum.

He’s probably right. I have just discovered b. chyll, a beautiful line of sweaters (or jumpers if you live in the UK). b. chyll, is a luxury knitwear collection focusing on beauty, form and function. I love their rich, yet subdued use of color. Hmmm…autumn is just around the corner...

Love these sweaters. It makes me want to take up knitting again and start on a colorful striped scarf. Why do we start thinking about wearing woolens when summer has just barely begun?

Beautiful sweaters! Boy am I with you Ronda. I love Fall and fall clothing. And I always looked forward to the Sept. Seventeen (although now it's the Sept. Vogue!)

Patricia, if I had the time or talent I would knit a scarf like that in a second!

I can't wait for my September issues to arrive from the State Jennifer (especially Vogue!).

Pretty sweaters! This is definitely the time of year when I can't wait to wear fall clothes! It's supposed to be cool in NYC this weekend. I see some shopping in my future ;-)

If I put that gray wrap sweater on I would never take it off.

Ever.

I'm definitely a cashmere girl, and that gray wrap-around sweater looks positively cozy!

You just missed out on another great Houston early-autumn tradition: the hurricane! One went in at Corpus Christi today, and it rained all day. Admit it, it was kinda fun getting all worked up about hurricanes and evacuations. As long as nothing really bad happened, of course.

Ha - remember when your mom would buy you all new fall clothes and it wasn't fall until maybe Thanksgiving? I remember when they finally air conditioned the schools. It started around 8th grade. Can you imagine school wasn't airconditioned?

Right, Thanksgiving if we were lucky! No ac in Houston in hard to imagine!

It was 24 years ago this week hurricane Alicia hit Galveston. I still remember that day.

I remember Carla like it was yesterday. When was it, 1960? We had our bathtub filled with water, I remember that so well. That was the last horrible hurricane Houston had imo.

I love the b. chyll sweater jacket. I have one of my own and it is so comfy. I just saw that hautelook.com is hosting a sample sale on this line. B. Chyll does cashmere better than any other brand! And hautelook.com always has fantastic deals up to 70% off.
