What to Wear? (part 2)

For some context, this was Super Bowl Sunday.  The wife and I went out to the grocery store for a few items.  The tie went on because I wasn’t satisfied with the way the collar looked unbuttoned on this particular shirt.  The navy cardigan above is 100% Wool and probably the warmest article of clothing I own.  I reserve it for the coldest days.  It looks great, keeps me warm, and replaces a much heavier jacket.

Casual sport shirt.

Mondays are days that I get to enjoy college campus life.  I have never seen a shirt so loud with such muted colors.  This shirt may have a Western-Inspired plaid going on, it’s cut and fit is more business casual.  However, it’s pattern would make me squeamish to wear it in a true business casual setting.  In a true business casual setting, you should wear a shirt that you could wear a tie with.  Business casual doesn’t necessarily mean you aren’t wearing a tie.  Food for thought.

An unusual Tuesday for me today.  Nothing social on the calendar, leaving me to hit the books, do some homework, and try out a new recipe for Manicotti.  Those brown leather slip on shoes I paid around $10.00 for and are my standard mulling around the house shoe on relaxed days.  Also, my go to shoe for dog walking.
