This particular outfit became a staple in the month. The boots, the black in the top, the armour ring.. it all just went together with the distressed jeans without much thought or trouble. The only whimsy I added was the knotted belt, and although it is finicky for the bathroom, I love it.

Over that, I wore my favourite camel jacket with my favourite clutch (it has a crossbody strap and carries Baby Bun’s underwear change!) It then became an outfit I kept repeating over and over again. It’s chic without being too prim or proper.

Grey was really the theme this month. I wore grey to death and didn’t mind. It was a nice colour for the mood I was in. The light dove grey of this jacket with the charcoal fit perfectly and I kept it super minimalist with just a navy sweater (peeking out) underneath.

At some point, I decided that I wanted some colour, and I took out my beloved fuchsia coat to lift my mood.

Still had grey pants on with black boots but that coat lifted my mood! Whenever I wear it, I stand out in a sea of black coats, and I get a ton of compliments. The combination with the casual navy blue fisherman’s jacket was also a nice touch.

Following that theme, I woke up with the idea of “Good as Gold”, and ran with it.

A nice warm cashmere tank, the vintage Gucci clutch (it also is a crossbody), and the belt to set everything off in a muted glammy way, made it another favourite this month. Again, note the grey pants.

And finally, my other favourite grey outfit of the month was all about lace + feminine glam.

“GREY FOR EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING!”, I cried, and I honestly wore this outfit (exact outfit) on repeat. It was comfortable, easy to throw on and still great for chasing a toddler.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I started this Euro trip noting what I wore… but didn’t continue. Everything was worn EXCEPT a grey cashmere sweater, as it was for ‘city’ wear and I always opted for a Uniqlo short puffer jacket (and show the shirt colour in the unzipped-ness. Gotta laugh that the Parisian in my hostel called it ‘le chaleur’ for the weather, which was at best high 20s… funny bugger – but it is high for May, at least May 2006 when I lived there, we remarked it was cold enough for ‘proper coats’. I did get good use out of the functional layers/warm gear whilst in Iceland, and not much afterward, but that’s par for the course with ‘hiking etc’ and then ‘city’. Still managed it in a carry on suitcase – so I’m proud of that (though I check it due to swiss army knife)

      I’m thinking a nice light puffer is the way to go these days. I just feel like I would sweat like a pig on a spit in all that polyester.
