Ralph’s Plaid For The Holiday

Confession:  Every Thanksgiving, I go house to house strictly for food.  Throughout the day on Thanksgiving, I take my appetite on tour.  Friends, relatives, associates, and co-workers…no one is off limits…and there is no tour date I will not honor on Thanksgiving.  Today, the “Thanksgiving Tour” started early with a Thanksgiving Lucheon at my daughter’s school.  Not only did I find this as a time to celebrate the holiday early, but I also saw an opportunity for daddy/daughter dress up…thanks to my good friend “Ralph”:


Saddle shoes by Ralph Lauren.


Gold socks by J.Crew.


Stripe silk bow tie by Ralph Lauren.  Blue herringbone spread collar dress shirt is also by Ralph Lauren.

The gentlemen and the lady are in everything Ralph Lauren.


Back In The Saddle

It has been awhile since I have broken out the saddle shoes.  I know it seems like I have abandoned them for the spectator shoe…but I haven’t.  The saddle shoe is still one of my favs:


Navy and bone saddle shoe by Ralph Lauren.


Blue polka dot socks are by Club Room.

Tie Tie2

Silk navy stripe bow tie is by Ralph Lauren.  Light blue spread collar dress shirt is by Banana Republic.  Navy pinstripe vest is a thrifting find.

Ralph Lauren And Banana Republic Affair

I am back in the office today and I went a little casual…casual for me, at least.  Everything I have on is either Ralph Lauren or Banana Republic.  Observe:

Brown wingtip dress boots by Banana Republic.

Argyle socks are by Banana Republic.

Forrest green corduroy trousers by Ralph Lauren.

Green gingham dress shirt with the white pointed collar is by Banana Republic.

Blue striped bow tie is a Ralph Lauren thrifting find.  It was unworn…still had the tag on it and there were no creases in the fabric.

Navy blue, knitted, shawl collar cardigan is by Ralph Lauren. 

Final Look!!
