100 Days of Ties: Day 53: Billy Reid, foosball, and reshaping sweaters

Tie: Billy Reid / Sweater, Shirt: J. Crew / Foosball: I even lose to myself.

I hate foosball. Well, fair, I don’t HATE foosball, as I don’t really hate anything (aside from black jellybeans and traffic), but if I am out at a bar and they have a table and was asked to play, I would most likely decline. I just suck at it. I will make no secret of this. I figure though that at this point in my life, if this “sport” is one of the things I am not necessarily sweet at, I’m okay with that given my other talents.
To get back on topic though: as much as I have been down on J. Crew as of late, I need to draw attention to my sweater today. It’s been my favorite for years now with no good reason other than it was a gift from my mom and the fit is prime. It’s got its imperfections now sure and I was bummed when the elasticity wore out in the waist, but I gave it a wash, reshaped it, and it’s now good as the first time I wore it…aside from the holes.

Today I am home and not getting dressed at all but I still wanted to throw a great tie out there. I wore this outfit to a summer wedding of a family friend. The tie is by Countess Mara and the shirt and suit are by H&M. My shoes are brown suede wingtip loafers by Mercanti Fiorentini. In my hand you will see a plum tomato that was grown in our garden this summer. We literally grew over 300 tomatoes this summer.
