We're on our way to the city today and will be taking my mother out for supper before heading up north to get my daughter from camp tomorrow. That will be a very different outfit.

It's unexpectedly cool again and it seemed like a perfect time to try a summer version of Angie's formula. I started with the Okalas, which include brown, black, and off-white, and went from there.

Pony hair Okalas.
GAP linen trousers in grey.
J. Crew NAVY tee (it may look black but it is not)
Cognac belt from consignment.
Danier black and bone bag.

Toppers: My options here are quite limited -- it's too warm for a blazer and in truth I wouldn't want a topper at all except for air conditioning. But here are some options. Which works best?

Lands End Mariner sweater (stripe is ink).
Blue denim. (The Bay -- ancient)
White denim. (Old Navy kids' department)

I think proportions are off with denim jackets but it looks more strange in photos than IRL where you could see that the jacket did not end exactly at my belt line and tops are semi tucked to drape a bit. I must be standing weird here.
