If a trend suits you, it’s great to have a varied selection while the item is popular and widely available. Very flat shoes such as ballet flats are not suitable for me because I have short legs and small feet compared to my upper half. I need to wear pointed toes, heels, platforms, or chunky soles to balance my shape. So when the lug soles and chunky loafers became trendy, I was on board.
A large silk twill scarf can keep you warm and add some color near your face. I folded this fifty-one-inch scarf into a triangle, placed it behind my neck, and tied a knot, then moved it to the side with one end hanging down on the front and the other on the back in an effortless casual way. I have used scarves to spruce up my classic basics since I visited Europe in my early twenties.
The loafers are here and the shirt is here and another similar shirt is here. Similar jeans are here. The bag is here. A scarf in similar colors is here.
While these loafers are not extreme, they are more substantive than the other loafers I own. In addition, they are comfortable and the right choice to wear with ankle or straight leg jeans and socks for fall. I am also pleased that they feature pewter-colored hardware.
On Sunday afternoon, Mr. Mickey and I visited Rocky Fork State Park to bask in the beautiful sunny weather. We enjoyed the sound of the roaring creek and the dappled light through the trees. Similar men’s clothing and shoes are here.
I wish I had always known how important it is to protect and care for your skin. My current skincare routine is here.
The link bracelet is vintage. A very similar one is here. (Use the code SAS10 for $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.) My new eyeglass frames are here. Recent outfits are summarized here.
When I roam through the woods, sit by a stream, or walk on the beach, I am in my element. Mr. Mickey grew up in the city, but I have inspired his new appreciation for nature. He thoroughly enjoyed standing beside the creek, taking in all the beauty.
I share my retired lifestyle, some local travel, and style inspiration using classic basics with accessories on this site. Therefore, I no longer accept products to advertise nor participate in any collaborations. After more than ten years of blogging, I just chat with you now and share what I’ve learned. We love reading your comments!
