I’m super excited to actually wear this handmade batik tie today. I bought it for my Step Dad while I was in Ghana in high school… turns out it was too bright for him so he gave it back to me in the Great Tie Transfer.
Today I went for a little more casual with my red cords and a sweater.
But the highlight of today was getting to see BATKID save the city . I only got a short glimpse of him, but it was heartwarming to see literally hundreds of people turn out on Montgomery street to cheer him on. Watching Mayor Ed Lee present him with a Key to the City right now!
Ok so since I know nothing about fashion “rules”… I know you’re not supposed to wear brown and black together, but what about chocolate brown and navy blue? Unfortunately the colors did not come out very well here, but it’s a brown jacket and navy slacks, with a navy tie.
Does this still count as professional? It doesn’t look sharp like the jackets. Maybe that’s because it’s a women’s sweater? Or maybe I’m just socialized to think that anything that is not form fitting is not flattering…
Or maybe it’s the hip problem, or the bust problem. My shirts are always all bulgey around the waist. Of course it’s bad with men’s shirts, but also with women’s like this one. Also got a new pair of black men’s dress shoes. Much better than the pumps!
