Mr. Rogers has a posse

The weather cracked here last week and I celebrated with one of my swank new cotton madras ties from this post, but just when I thought I was going to be able to dig into the more fun part of my wardrobe for good, around came one last (or, at least I hope) blast of winter. Originally we were supposed to get 3-4 inches of snow, but it held off and we got what can best be described as 2 or 3 inches of slush.

On days when weather is going to present such a beat-down, I have some nicer shoes with man-made soles that I don't mind getting smacked around a bit. I wanted something understated, but with a bit of color, so I went with a blue/brown combo from top to bottom. Recent find of an LL Bean cardigan ($3) over the top, with a vertical stripe (blue and brown, natch) Enro shirt ($1), blue corduroys ($2, from this post), and a shiny brown tie (and brown belt and the aforementioned brown Florsheim semi-beaters).

The cords are actually a bit brighter and lighter than the above picture shows, and I think they can be good spring or fall pants depending on what I pair them with.

Won't you be my neighbor?


  1. Just discovered your blog thanks to your comment on AAF's 300th post. I've been reading over your stuff and really enjoy it so far! AAF was also a big inspiration for the blog I just started as well. Keep up the good work!

    I've also added you to my blog roll!

  2. Thanks for the comment! I think you're officially the first commenter ever on here, which means I will have to buy you a beer if ever we meet in person.

    AAF is definitely the creme de la creme of thrifty fashion blogs, so we're like moths to a flame there. :)

    Thanks as well for the blog roll add. I'm still trying to soak everything up. I'll definitely be spinning by your site for ideas.
