Many of you have asked me to show more casual outfits. Saturday afternoon attire for running errands, going to the bookstore, and visiting my parents is today’s look.
My coat is from White House|Black Market a couple of years ago. A few inches above the knee is the most flattering length for me.
Jeans and a sweater have become my winter dressing formula. The combo is so easy and it keeps me warm. I’ve never been a fan of bulky knitwear because they add too much bulk where I don’t need it. When I discovered cashmere sweaters from Everlane, it changed my winter style for the better.
The blue heather sweater is here. My trusty Levi’s jeans in the color ‘Role Model’ are here. The silk scarf here keeps me warm and adds some color and pattern. I folded it in a triangle and then wrapped the ends around my neck twice and tied a little knot to create an infinity scarf.
The boots are a well planned recent purchase. They are by Marc Fisher here. The reasons I like them so much is that the top is sleek and closefitting on the ankle and the block heel is very comfortable for me. The Michael Kors bag is here.

As I prepare for my retirement years, I make wiser but vastly fewer purchases. I’ve started donating or selling some of the things I rarely wear, including bags. Look for more jackets and bags to show up later today here.
Dry winter air always takes a toll on my hair and skin. I’ve been using my No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil (here) every morning for significant relief. When I wake up, my skin feels super dry, so one of the first things I do is massage the oil into my face and hands. I scrunch what remains on my hands into my hair.
Mr. Mickey often comments on how much healthier my skin looks this winter, so I decided to treat him to some Counterman. He had never used grooming products above soap and water, so he is thrilled with how his skin looks and feels now. The set here makes an excellent gift for a gentleman with a beard. (Thirteen years ago tomorrow Mr. Mickey and I went on our first date.)
I always include a gift when you shop with me on my shopping site here. Have a beautiful day!
