This morning, I had no idea what I was going to wear. I was completely clueless…until my wife dressed my daughter. I looked at my daughter’s look and decided to do my own rendition of her look for today. I refer to my daughter as my “ButterFLY”…and this is my ButterFLY AFFECTion:
Brown and white spectator wingtips by Johnston & Murphy are a thrifting find.
Argyle socks are by Brooks Brothers.
Plaid diamond tip bow tie is by IZOD. Cream dress shirt with spread collar is by Saks Fifth Avenue. Blue sport coat with notch lapels, side vents, two button closure, flap pockets, and partial interior lining is a thrifting find.
Silk cream pocket square…origin unknown.
Canary Yellow linen trousers are from Hong Kong Vintage Clothing.
Today, I went bold in difference sense. I took three different classic color combination and combined them to make up one look. It’s daring:
Wingtip kilti loafers with tassels by Cole Haan are a thrifting find.
Salmon argyle socks are by Brooks Brothers.
Green and white stripe flat front trousers are by Ralph Lauren. Belt is also by Ralph Lauren.
Silk blue and gold stripe bow tie is by Ralph Lauren. Light blue dress shirt with the white contrast collar by Nautica is a thrifting find. Vintage navy cardigan is IZOD Lacoste, a purchase from Ingram Vintage in Atlanta, Ga.
I was in Belk’s yesterday and I came across an amazing sale that they are having this weekend! The sale is 50% markdown on the original price and then an additional 50% off of the sale price for a total savings of 75%…now, I do not quite understand that math but that’s what the sign says. Therefore, I will just roll with it. j/k
Yesterday, I did not buy a lot…but I did see a few deals that I could not pass up, like this classic white french cuff spread collar dress shirt by Ralph Lauren for $9.99.
This izod gingham check spread collar dress shirt was also $9.99. Izod made this one with a lot of access material, so I will have to go and get this shirt fitted to avoid the popsicle look (more to come on this topic).
Rose spread collar dress shirt was also $9.99.
This beautiful dotted bow tie by Ralph Lauren was only $14.99.
This red polka dot necktie by Ralph Lauren was also on sale for $14.99
There are many more great deals in the store and if you are on Belk’s email distribution list, then you have access to multiple coupon offers that makes this sale event even sweeter.
