Usually we can't get them to be happy and be in bow ties. Owen's favorite line is "Lame. I don't want to dress like Papa." He's a pre-teen at age 4. But this time around, they both decided they wanted to be magicians, so they needed a bow tie and a cape to go with their wands. Okey Dokey.
Today was the first day for tweed. Great to get my favorite Donegal out, with the elbow patches and all.
And Day 270 called for a straight batwing silk repp stripe X gray velvet reversible. It's really one of my favorites of the year. Yours for $29, all of which goes to Haiti. Grab here.
The other great thing about Autumn is that it's now sock season.
Yesterday's bow was actually also one of autumnal Donegal, but this time in the bow tie. Half of it, anyway. Check out this gorgeous tweed with a reversible cotton plaid in diamond point. Grab it here.
More autumnal awesomeness: boots. Wolverine 1000 Mile boots, to be more precise.
And scruff, too.
Saturday night I got to see and hear The Secret Sisters from Muscle Shoals, AL. Good tunes in the Old Town Amphitheater. And a good occasion to wear --- you guessed it!--- a bow tie.
This vintage necktie silk crossed with rust velvet in butterfly shape -- Day 267. Can't ever get this one again after this one's gone. Grab it here.
Was pretty wiped after the show, I guess.
