I have recently come to a startling realization.
To keep generating content at our current pace, I am going to have to show you everything I own. And then every outfit I’ve worn to work. Not just the most interesting stuff and my favorites . . . but all of it. If I do so, this blog will become the 21st Century equivalent of The Diary of William Byrd, and 23rd Century scholars will try to decipher the meaning in the redundancy, triviality, and minutiae.
I think this outfit is informative.
You haven’t seen this striped top for two years.
When last seen by you, I wore it with a short-sleeved black blouse and cropped wool trousers.
I’ve also worn it with a white blouse and my black workaday suit, but I haven’t shown that to you.
This top is very advanced and I usually deploy it on the more formal side of business casual. But why not wear it with a simple white blouse and khakis?
It looks smart.
Who wore it better?
It’s been unseasonably cool here and so I need a jacket. I have remembered and fallen back in love with my old jean jacket from JCrew.
Seeing my jacket caused The Photographer to do something he almost never does. He expressed a desire to obtain a piece of clothing — a jean jacket of his own. Because he hates looking for and trying on clothes, I know the desire must be very strong.
To put this request in context, when The Photographer requests clothing, it is usually socks.
It’s not just cool. It’s cold. I’ve added a scarf. A thin pinstripe to complement the other stripes. In general, stripes like mixing with stripes.
One last shot. Something has caught my eye in the distance.
A baby! Love babies.
Have a great weekend!
