Ah cities. We may find ourselves wanting to look a little tough on those sidewalks. At least from a distance.
A Uniqlo field jacket (proving to be incredibly wearable by the way) and Very Large Sunglasses from Costco serve as the first line of defense. Levi’s 1969 selvedge jeans and Steve Madden oxfords (similar styles are ubiquitous this year) bring up the rear.
We’ll all ignore that cheeky pun. Blame it on recent over-indulgence in British television.
But take off the protective layer to show your fierce heart. This, the COMME DES GARCONS PLAY Striped top.
That’s Not My Age has pointed out the nice style boost chandelier earrings can give your jeans. Danglers also mitigate tough, as ornament does. These below are Swedish antiques, given to me by my mother during her years in Stockholm and Gothenburg. One could of course swing modern. I like the Pippa Small Jellyfish Earrings.
Finally, I wear the Duluth Pack, a men’s Rolex Cellini (as I’ve said before, better a Timex as this thing loves to stop working and weaponry must never let us down). If you look closely, you’ll see my wedding ring. Fierce hearts, tender hearts, we’ve all got one. Even if we don’t show it to the city.
