It was a public holiday in the US last Thursday, which meant catching up on errands and working from home. My outfit for the day had to be casual and extra comfortable. Granted, my casual outfits are dressier than most. But style is a celebration of individuality and this is my casual.
The day started early with a trip to the vet for Jasmine, one of our little Yorkies. It wasn’t raining so I could wear bootcut jeans with my much loved, apple green Miz Mooz Carlito Cowboy boots. No soggy hems! These jeans are one of the first items of clothing I bought when we came to America seven years ago and they are still going strong. They are AG’s Angel fit premium denim with a wider cut leg. I’m feeling quite hip in them since the resurgence of 70’s fashion.
You can’t see the grey jumper I popped over the jeans, but it’s the twist cashmere sweater from this year’s Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale (I’m always so happy to find knitwear that doesn’t itch). I covered up with an another wardrobe item I’ve had for years – a 70’s inspired leather jacket with faux fur trim. I topped off the look with colourful scarf, cobalt blue snake skin patent satchel and was out the door with doggie in tow.
After dropping off Jasmine I continued the errand run with grocery shopping and a trip to the UPS store. In the afternoon Greg and I walked to one of our locals, the Hi Spot Cafe, for a late lunch (we took these pictures in a park that we passed on the way). Oh how I love, love, love Autumn. I will miss the rustle of the leaves when they are gone.
Back home, the scarf, jacket and shoes came off and the slippers went back on. With tea and biscuits on hand it was off to work at my computer for the rest of the afternoon.
