For those of us making long term plans for retirement, a wardrobe of classic basics makes perfect sense. I plan to travel as often as possible when I retire, so a flexible wardrobe that is comfortable and interchangeable without being trendy is a priority. I want pieces that can be dressed up or down so that I can look appropriate for any occasion using just a few key elements.
Thunderstorms were predicted on Sunday, so I grabbed my trusty umbrella on the way out the door. It has gotten a lot of use this summer! Mr. Mickey often says, “Better to have it and not need than to need it and not have it.” A similar one is here. Notice that even my umbrella is classic and neutral.
The thunderstorm passed us by, so our walk through town was pleasant. Since we were grabbing a late brunch at the very casual Label Restaurant after visiting my parents on Sunday, I dressed appropriately. I will wear this white cotton button front relaxed-fit shirt for several years. I bought it from Everlane last year. The most recent style in linen is here. My favorite jeans (here) have no expiration date either. Those sandals are at least three years old. (Similar here) A similar belt is here.

(Pardon my seatbelt wrinkles!) I bought those Vera Wang sunglasses three years ago at Kohl’s. (Similar here) The earrings and ring were gifts from Mr. M. years ago. The Beauty In Stone link bracelet is here. Use the code SAS10 For $10 off any item. The gifted Teddy Blake bag is here. I chose this bag because of the neutral gray color, size, and of course, the elegant classic style.
The perfect gifted Nordgreen watch is here. I will wear this one for the next decade! Nordgreen is offering you a discount code (SUSAN15).
My classic wardrobe pieces and my small collection of high-quality accessories along with a few silk scarves will serve me well no matter which city in the world I visit. I always feel confident, appropriate and comfortable in my classic basics.
Johnson City has an ever-changing display of Public Art throughout downtown.
Did you enjoy the posts this week? My goal was to show you the pieces I wear most often to create comfortable day to day looks (as opposed to the date night looks). I hope you have a lovely weekend!
