Before sharing my list of some things I avoid, here are a few photos from our Saturday afternoon adventures.
The bag is about eight years old. The shoes and denim blazer are at least three years old. (The blazer is by Raison D’etre.) I don’t remember how long I’ve had the watch, but I’ve felt like the best version of myself each time I’ve worn these items.
Navy and gray is one of my favorite color combos. Touches of silver take this look to the next level. As is usually the case with my posts, nothing is new. I hope that sharing how I wear the same things repeatedly helps you look at some new combinations already in your wardrobe. Maybe you have something similar and didn’t think to wear the pieces together. In any case, I share all the helpful lessons I wish I had learned when I was much younger.

Prince Charming is waiting to open the door for me. Since we started dating almost sixteen years ago, I haven’t been “allowed” to touch a door handle.
Those two-tone shoes are at least thirty years old, which is a testament to shoe rotation, professional polishing and taking care of your well-planned purchases. When Mr. Mickey wears jeans, he almost always adds a structured blazer to the look.
Never say never. I find it much easier to avoid a few things rather than demand that every situation fit my needs. For example, if I am a guest in someone’s home where they serve baked chicken and dessert, I eat small portions and return to my primarily vegetarian ways at the next meal. Compromise makes life a little more pleasant for everyone, but the lists below include things I don’t buy and try to avoid.
Some textures don’t look so great on me, and a few things just don’t fit my personality anymore. For example, now that I rarely wear heels, tunics are the wrong proportion for my short legs, and extra fabric equals extra girth.
