At the start of each spring and fall, I shop for what is missing from my wardrobe. I keep a note pad in my closet to record what I often need but don’t have and also the things I want to replace. I use the list to help me stay focused when I start shopping early in the season. I’ve learned that if I wait too long, my size and the color I want may sell out.

Earlier this year, I purged most of my long sleeve cotton tees. I had purchased some of them five years prior, so they served me well. As I searched for replacements, I had three priorities – 100% cotton – higher necklines that fall below the collarbones – hip length. I found a few options here. (The navy one is pictured below.) I kept looking around on their site and found more colors in the same style, so I purchased several in brighter colors as well as basics.
To keep warm, I wear long sleeve tops with a higher neckline in cold weather. We lose a lot of heat from our chest and throat area, so I find v-neck and scoop neck tops uncomfortable in winter. I wear these tees alone or with vests and jackets when I go for my walks or while relaxing at home.
All of my coats are in dark colors, so for the past two years, I have been looking for a short, lightweight casual red one. When I found the Mac Coat above (here), I was able to check off all the boxes. Water Resistant – Hits Above-knee – Button Front Closure – Mostly Cotton – True Red. I ordered it right away in a size medium.
There is a Labor Day sale going on now, so I am stocking up on no-show socks here. I only have two pairs of the ACTIVE-X high-cut no-show socks. I wear them with my walking shoes now, and they will be perfect with all of my short boots later. Use the code SUSANLABORDAY to get 15% off. (The code cannot be combined with the one on their site, but my code can be used on all their products, including the four pair bundles.
