A Coat And A Suit
Since I don't have much to say about today's outfit, other than that I added an old H&M suit to yesterday's new H&M coat, I thought that I would make today's post one of those random thoughts about clothes posts (since I do have a couple of random thoughts about clothes to share). So here goes.
Random thought number one: On Tuesday, I finally wore an outfit, inspired by the Autumn/Winter 2011 twenty-seven names collection, that had been waiting to be worn for a couple of weeks. It occurred to me this evening that there is a second outfit, inspired by the Autumn/Winter 2011 twenty-seven names collection, and created around the same time as the outfit that I wore on Tuesday was, that is still waiting to be worn. This second outfit just keeps slipping out of my consciousness when it leaves my sight. I really have no idea when I might wear this second outfit.
Random thought number two: Yesterday, I received a package from LLBean. I ordered those Lace Snowbell Boots in graphite about a week ago and, yesterday, they arrived. There were two other items in the package: two waffle-lined flannel shirts. I had a few free hours today, so I thought that I would try on one of the shirts. As soon as I put it on, I fell in love with it and began styling it. At some point, I recalled an LLBean flannel shirt that I had seen in an editorial last year. I remember being drawn to it, wanting it and trying to find it, to no avail, at LLBean. I think that the flannel shirts that I bought this year are the flannel shirt that was in the editorial. I was new to LLBean last year. Having had more experience with LLBean, I now realize that the reason why I probably couldn't find the shirt last year was because, by the time I had gotten around to looking for it, LLBean had sold out of it. Weird, huh? How I happen to buy this year, by happenstance, what I wanted to buy last year.
I am wearing a coat from H&M and an old suit from H&M. My tights are from my sock drawer and my booties are by Neosens.
