On a relatively mild November weekend, we decided to take advantage of a Saturday with sunshine and without obligations and headed up to Baltimore to visit Port Discovery, a hands-on kids’ museum in a cool old building downtown. Afterwards we planned to stroll around the Inner Harbor.
Result: Turtleneck + T-shirt + jacket paired with heavyweight cotton khaki pants from H&M. Each of the 3 top pieces is knit, the queen of comfort fabrics. And the pants are essentially jeans, even pseudo cargo ones at that.
So if you think about it, I’m just wearing a dressed-up version of T-shirt and jeans. Without the necklace, it’s an even more casual look.
(Confession: After I shot this photo, I thought better of it and traded the boots for Pumas. Sometimes functionality has to trump fashion!)
