When I’m out and about, I’m always looking at other people! (mostly, I’m looking to see if there’s anything with which I can help them…)
In Chicago, and I suspect in a fair number of cities, a black tee shirt with blue jeans is the base for all kinds of outfits, from casual to dress, and in any color you can imagine!
Their starting point is pretty simple:
I’ve seen some people bundled up:
I really admired a simple black cashmere cardigan with an amazing scarf that picked up the blue in this heroine’s jeans:
The scarf will take the place of a mortgage payment… but it is perfect with her coat and shoes!
This heroine was getting lots of smiles from everyone:
I admired the quiet subtly of this outfit – especially the touch of blue in her earrings!
Warm brown! So lovely…
This is the perfect thing to wear to those parties when you have no clue how dressy things will be…
Very few people wear burgundy. Why IS that?
A cool brown cardigan with the perfect scarf will always catch the eye of those who appreciate low-key elegance:
Maybe some of your friends will be dressed up, but YOU are going to wear jeans – this outfit will help you get away with anything…
When I’m finished with my black dress adventure, I very well could wear jeans and a tee shirt for a month! (but I won’t – I want to wear my new grey flannel pants, and my tweed pants, and and and!)
p.s. Eight years ago, I shared with you one of my favorite Helen Frankenthaler paintings, along with a “French 5-Piece Wardrobe” taking from its colors…
