Things Organized Neatly: Winter to Spring

May 9, 2011

Spring? Oh yeah, it should be here by now.
But it’s not.
Welcome to Midwest weather.

How does one make it by, yearning for spring but still in the cold?
These are my digs that I’ve pleased to be incorporating into my wardrobe. It can be 40s in the morning but then hike up to 60s in the afternoon. So I’m prepared with a great mid-weight, unlined jacket and a mid-weight pant. Throwing in a madras tie beckons spring, so try that, too. And if you’re still cold when the sun sets, end your evening with a night cap.

Slim straight leg, front cargo pocket mushroom pants (retail, sale $20, reg. $68) by Levi’s, 30×34; short-sleeve button down (Standard Style, sale $50 reg. $140) by Apolis Activism, small; graphed “Balsam Fir” notebook (Renegade Handmade, three for $10) by Field Notes; brown leather belt with brass hardware (sale $4.99) by J.Crew, size 32; unlined brown canvas utility jacket (Michigan Avenue Levi’s, sale $32 [$44 – 30% sale] reg. $198) by Levi’s, small; plaid tie (thrifted, $1); bottle of Knob Creek (refrigerator) courtesy of my roommate’s wallet, size weekend.

    Hah, I tried on that jacket in the Mich. Ave. store. At that price, I wanted to try to wax it. The buttons seemed like a little much.

    Awesome pants, though!

    The Field Notes notebooks are fantastic. They come out with a new batch of colors every three months or so. May want to think about a subscription
