  • wool overcoat black, gray, or camel color
  • casual slip on loafers such as Bass Weejuns
Ah, a gent who dresses well.... You might like high quality, 2-ply cashmere sweaters, too, along with a Filson shirt or two.

Here is a brand new round neck sweater I got this fall. Do you think it looks perfect for a cool cloudy day.

Sorry for the bad image quality . My computer camera is very poor.

I love boots, but I love my sandals and open toed shoes more. I hold out till I can't stand the cold or it snows before switching over. Especially when it is 78 like is forecast for today.

The high is 61 F here, so I decided to wear a sweater. Once it breaks the upper 60's. Its t shirt weather.

Today is the first day I am wearing long sleeves since May.

I have such a hard time finding boots that aren't too big around my calves - they just always feel so clunky on me. I have a few pair of short leather boots (a couple of inches past the ankle) - I guess they call those booties now.

I adore sandals too and really it is so much better for your feet to be in sandals than in a closed environment - but at some point the sandals get tucked away and out come the booties, loafers, tennies and rain boots.

I guess in the winter I am a slave to fashion because I love flats - they are so comfy - leopard, tangerine, brown, black, camel & black, black and brown, navy, dark red - I think they are so cute with skirts and pants...but not practical for the winter - so I have Mr. Catt (DH) drop me at the door of wherever we are going to - then I proceed with my winter time dash to get inside before my tootsies freeze

I do have pumps also and I wear them with short skirts but none of them are usually all that comfy.

Open toes are comfortable, till you get cold feet. Cold feet feel really uncomfortable for me. Hence, I avoid open toes from October-April

Open toes are a must for me in the summer. I wear my pair of Chapals ( open toed shoes for guys in India ) all summer long. Don't care about what others think .
