Whilst perusing summer sales on-line I was smitten by a pair of modern looking leather slides (Naturalizer) that I thought would work with the white items I own. Alas, when they arrived they turned out to be cream coloured vs the optic white I needed. I kept them anyway (very deep discount!) because they were comfortable, and did work with a yellow floral hoodie that gets a lot of wear. Then I added a puffer (Uniqlo) I was intending to buy anyway. Turns out it wasn’t white either! An intriguing cotton sweater with lantern sleeves joined the puffer before I checked out of the store.

The slides are seeing a lot of wear, but it has been a little too warm to wear the sweater or the puffer. However, today I got notification that the Senior’s Centre will be re-starting Bridge Night the last week of October - so time to figure out some outfits using my new kit!

#1 the ‘new’ off white capsule
#2-3 with loose trousers (from 2019) - the sneaker toe cap is actually off white too!
#4 brocade pants (thrifted, and label says ‘made in Canada’) and loafers
#5 with (optic) white jeans. If I can keep the sweater clean through to next summer, I’ll look for off white linen bottoms…
#6 a casual combo - shows the sleeve drama
#7 what I actually wore (swimming in the am - didn’t need puffer for the rest of the day.)

The sandals will be put away when the weather turns cold, but I plan on wearing the sweater and puffer through F/W. *Note: the puffer is adjustable, and can be worn with a round neck or V-neck

Thanks for looking!
