Editor’s Picks: Shear Perfection
I have a bad habit of turning on the fan in my bedroom when sleep calls (and, yes, the A/C is cranked). There’s something appealing about making the room so cold that I’m able to hide under a pile of heavy blankets.
Unfortunately, my comforter lacks the warmth and appeal of a cozy fleece jacket, which reminds me—I don’t own any fleece apparel. I’m not an outdoors-type-of-girl, but I do have some activities planned for fall: pumpkin patch, haunted houses, football games, etc. I need to stay warm and my comforter isn’t going to get the job done. It looks like my “To-Do” list just got longer.
I’m still willing to accept recommendations for a new comforter, as well.
