Great Pants!

I really love these pants! They are the Banana Republic Sloan Slim Ankle pant. Yes that's a mouth full but it works. I have them n navy and a color that is a deep brown, similar to the twig color J Crew did a while back.  I like them because they fit just a little loser and more professionally than the J Crew Minnies do.  I have a pair of minnies and to me they are weekend pants. Just a little snug and a little cropped for the office. These pants look good with flats and heels and will tuck into rain boots to commute one wet days.  It's a win, win.  I'm going back for black for sure and maybe this burgundy color above. What do you think?

Essential Item - The Navy Blazer

I know I have posted in th epast about the Navy Blue Blazer. Yes, I think the item is so important that it deserves to be capitalized.  I certainly could not live without mine.  Did you know that a true Navy Blue Blazer has gold buttons?  That's how you tell it from a navy juit jacket. The gold buttons are a reminder of the true naval heritage of the Navy Blue Blazer.  That piece of trivia is brought ot you via the Brooks Brothers blog. Anyway, mine is not the J Crew school boy above, although it looks good.  Mine is what I think of as a true school boy in that is it a Brooks Brothers boys blazer in a sz 16. I wear it with a tee and jeans, to the office with good slacks, over a dress for some fun.  It's a true closet workhorse. Truely an Essential Item!

The Conference

This is one of Adam's favorite things about playing catcher. He loves to "conference" on the mound. This plus his blondy brown buzz cut has earned him the nickname "Buster" after the Giants catcher Buster Posey.  Here he is counseling one of our pitchers during a recent tournament.
