Traditional style advice to make your outfits more interesting is: add texture and/or shine. So today I am experimenting with a little of each, to liven up my classic black trousers. It’s a gorgeous Florida Fall today so I want to shine with a dressy/casual mix.

This nifty brocade jacket (similar) was thrifted in Greenwich Village for about $25. It’s by Albert Nipon, really well tailored and I love the cropped length. The knit top by CAbi (sim) is also thrifted, and the great AllSaints trousers were picked up last year in NYC. The silk art scarf (sim) is an old friend, and the boots are new and retail! (what!) by Børn. They are the darkest burgundy, not black. Love the look, and they did our seven miles a day walking in New York without a blister.
Ready for any adventure today brings, although if tradition holds that means wine and tempting snacks at Coasters Pub, watching NFL and
screaming cheering for my teams.
