Café Crème

Hazy, hot, humid, hurried. Those have been my days of late. Spring has been unseasonably warm and busy for us. Last night’s authors and books dinner (A Junior League affair in its 65th year!) was very interesting and enjoyable. Getting out of the parking deck, less so. Suffice to say, it was a late night for Mrs. E. and me.

Today, of course, dawned bright and early with my son leaping into the room at 5:55 am, the knowledge that it is trash and recycling day slowly creeping into my brain and the fact that I have a doctor’s appointment which requires me to fast.

I am longing for a good breakfast. Or a café crème at least, to take the edge off. This is the only time I consider adding anything to my coffee. Which means I’m hungry. A mixture of cream, tan and white, which I will recycle all summer, is very pleasing to the eye. Comforting, like that cafe crème. The key to its success is, in my opinion, the patterned trousers. They are tan and cream houndstooth. A variation on this look is to wear your tan and white or grey and cream seersucker jacket with khakis and (later in the summer) mix in your white bucks. If you do dress casually for work, this sort of tonal dressing can look very smart. Or at least like you weren’t swamped in a flurry of activity trying to get out the door.

Which I am. Ciao.
