The Grey

The Grey Suit…I have plenty of them.  And I have asked myself if you can have too many of them, because I seem to be drawn to them every time I go shopping.  Even when I am looking for other colored suits, I somehow find a grey suit that I must have:

Plum Foolery

Today at lunch, a gentlemen asked me how do I stay cool and keep from burning up while wearing a suit in this summer heat.  I gave him a simple answer because I was incredibly hungry.  But, I started thinking…maybe that would be a great blog entry/style tip in the near future:

Today’s look made me feel a little patriotic.  It wasn’t my plan to wear the “sweet colors of liberty”…it just happened and I’m okay with that.  Afterall, I do love my country:
