Man these leather shorts certainly got a lot of mileage this year. I am embarrassed to admit that when inspiration didn’t come I grabbed the shorts and then shut my eyes and reached into my closet. They really look great with everything and works for almost every informal occasion. I highly recommend that you add one to your closet.
It’s not the award winner, but the other item that got a lot wear this year is this indigo blue top. This top along with the dress from Monday’s post, was one of the two items that was gifted….ok that I wrangled from my designer friend when I visited his studio recently. It is so incredibly versatile and can be dressed up ( with a maxi skirt) or down (skinny jeans, or shorts); or worn under a jacket. I highly recommend that you add this staple if you don’t already have one.
I got a few queries about the locations of my photo shoots. So for those of you who are wondering, the photos were taken outside of City Hall in Hartford, Connecticut. By the way the shiny doors are real brass (so I heard) and were restored recently. I’ve included a picture of the weathered doors which I actually prefer. The orange sculpture is Alexander Calder’s ‘Stegosaurus’ sculpture which sits between City Hall and the Wadsworth Atheneum. The fountains were also restored recently along with that checkered patio (I’ve never noticed it before).

What is the one (or two) items in your closet that you absolutely killed this year… (by killed I mean wore it to death)?
