What I Am Wearing

The thing about me, is that I love blue, as you might know from previous posts, or as you might be able to tell by looking at this outfit. I mean, with the exception of the shoes, there is some form of blue in every other piece of my outfit. Some might find this excessive, but as I love it, it doesn't matter. Now what I am getting at, is that I think that a dark brown suede loafer, is just about one of the nicest pairings that you can conjure up with blue attire (just outside of burgundy shoes!). And while I don't wear these loafers as often as I should (maybe due to not wanting to ruin them), I do find myself always drawn to suede loafers when looking into shoe stores. We actually have a pair at G&H, in the Cleverley butterly loafer design, that I absolutely love, but thankfully (as I don't need more shoes or to spend any money) they don't stock my size. Nevertheless, if you are like me and love the color blue in your wardrobe, then a dark brown suede loafer is something that you should also look to own, because it will take you a long way.

  1. Amazing shoes , and perfect pairing with casual blue clothes ! Regards Hernan

  2. Hernan - Thanks! That's very nice of you...


  3. Why is that jacket so big?

  4. AFJ - Not sure what you mean? The sleeves are long, yes, but it is an's not meant to be snug... Where do you see it big, other than the sleeves?


  5. Yeah, I just meant the sleeves as you point out yourself. Nice jacket though, don't see many 'square' patterned quilted ones these days. It's all 'diamond'.

    I too have a ''thing" for the blue colour albeit more navy. Ever thought about wearing red socks or some other bold colour instead of purple? I find it makes an all blue outfit much more noticeable and enjoyable.


  6. AFJ - Yea, I don't have short arms or anything, but for some reason, sleeves are always a bit long for me...but with this coat I did not mind the look of just 'cuffing' them. Not that I am trying to show off the Burberry print, but it just doesn't look that bad to me....

    I often wear red socks to give a little pop in my outfit, but I just didn't this time around..
