Gingham Style

Today was another opportunity to pay homage to the styles of the 1970s, and I did exactly that with a couple of gingham pieces to highlight the look:

Brown wingtip dress boots by Banana Republic.

Dress socks by Ralph Lauren.

Vintage Brooks Brothers gingham check pants were a purchase from Design Archives in Greensboro, NC.

Powder blue dress shirt with the pointed collar by Banana Republic.

Vintage narrow rust colored necktie was a thrifting find.  Tie bar is from Banana Republic.

Tan corduroy blazer with notch lapels, center vent, and silk interior lining was a thrifting find.

Navy blue gingham pocket square is a thrifting find.

Final Look!!

Getting Into The Thanksgiving Spirit

Yesterday, I went to the grocery store to do some shopping for Thanksgiving dinner.  I think the “Thanksgiving Spirit” carried over into today’s look:

Brown leather saddle shoes from Cole Hahn.  I own four pairs of saddle shoes and these are my only leather pair…and they are the only pair that I own that are not by Ralph Lauren.  I love Ralph Lauren’s version of the saddle shoe…and Brooks Brothers offers a great version, as well.

Brown socks with orange stripes are from The Gap.

Navy blue trousers are by Perry Ellis.  These pants are made from a thinner material and more suitable for warmer weather.  However, I added some thermal bottoms underneath to make them suitable for this cold weather.  Something my mother taught me…how to wear your summer clothes in the winter. 

Navy blue gingham button down dress shirt by Club Monaco.

Paisley tie was a thrifting find and the tie bar is by Banana Republic.

Burnt orange corduroy blazer, with notch lapels and center vent, was also a thrifting find.

Navy blue silk pocket square, origin unknown.
