Even just 3 years ago, this outfit wouldn’t be possible for me to put together. Sometimes I think the closet best suited to me and my life is like a big jigsaw puzzle and finding all the pieces is the journey. These chino pants by Banana Republic are from 2011 and underwent a shortening last year. It’s very useful during Spring and just this year I can wear them with a little Chambray shirt by Current Elliott found last Autumn also here. It’s thick enough to pass for denim. Sam Edelman pointy toe patent flats are so easy to wear and keeps the outfit from being too casual. This is a very old bag by Coach that has survived an unfortunate incident where my Tween managed to spill an entire tall glass of milkshake at the restaurant table when she was about 6. I had no idea what a huge area – we’re talking hectares – that volume of shake could cover … neither did the other customers! Fortunately it was banana flavour and not chocolate! I let it dry out and used a few of those leather wipes. That was my first ever foray into leather care. I think I used a bit too much because the nubuck felt a little dry afterwards.
I love the beautiful patina on the strap. It’s just a very good size and simple style.
Thanks for reading!
