Light weight material and less material is the key to staying cool in the summer.  Straight fit and slim fit, instead of relaxed or baggy clothes:

socks

Socks are by Happy Socks.

Black silk neck tie by Banana Republic.  Tie bar from Kenneth Cole.  French cuff white spread collar dress shirt is a thrifting find.

Burning Britches

The objective isn’t to spend the most money to look your best, but to spend the least amount of money to look your best.  Take today’s look, for instance…everything was a thrifting find except for the bow tie I found on sale at Macy’s and the chinos that were on sale, as well.  The chinos were $21 and I will say that I spent no more than $50 on today’s look:

shoes

Brown wingtip loafers with tassels by Florsheim are a thrifting find.  Black loafer socks (not seen) are from Steve Madden.  Personally, I cannot wear shoes without socks without feeling a certain level of discomfort.  However, I do enjoy the loafers/drivers and “no socks look”.  Thin loafer socks help me pull off this look without enduring the discomfort of having leather actually rubbing against my bare feet.

tie

Silk navy striped bow tie is by Ralph Lauren.  Blue dress shirt with white contrast spread collar by Nautica is a thrifting find.

Flower

White flower lapel is from a boutique on the campus of UNC Greensboro.

Fresh Salmon

It has been a while since I have given you guys a daily update…and there is a really good, however unfortunate, reason for the delay.  I broke one of my digital cameras and I had to lay it to rest.  I have had that camera for almost ten years and we have been so many places and shared so many wonderful experiences.  From Italy to San Francisco, we held each other close in the middle of a hurricane in Barbados, and got some of my friends in trouble in Puerto Rico…oh the good times we’ve had. 

Not to worry…I did get a new camera.  So, I am back at it (Yesterday’s look):
