I’m writing this blog backwards and finishing this post with an ensemble that will be more apropos cooler weather (best time of year for fashion is Fall if you ask me). I intend to post smart summer fashion… what was hot right now. My quest brought me to Mr Porter a great resource for men, they have everything that is hot, and have it for sale. So just to be clear… this outfit is where I ended up, not where I started.
I came to this image of the autumnal outfit of turtleneck and tweed shown with the most beautiful pair of Gucci wingtips (love Mr Porter). I had gotten past the outfit and was cruising for shoes, summer chic was on my mind but… BAM! I saw these brown beauties and I almost started begging for fall.
But the perfect shoe was to be found. Who doesn’t love a navy leather loafer after all? This was the perfect shoe to take a t-shirt and jeans up to the place where you could still go almost anywhere. Paul Smith for a Mr Porter exclusive, I’m adding this shoe to my wish list.
I knew finding a pair of Gant Rugger corduroy shorts paired with a white T-shirt and a cardigan was a perfect look, but and I am having second thoughts on the color of the sweater… I still like the idea of a layer of some sort. It dresses up the outfit a bit if it’s into evening, cocktails or just a classy ; ) place. A white T is just a white T after all.
AND, to think it all started because I recently got an awesome – natural linen with a thin double stripe of navy running the long way with a bit of fringe – that a bestie game to me : )
