Cardigan for fall and winter

Cardigans are great for when you transition out of summer and into fall. Or out of winter into spring. Lightweight cardigan gives you an additional layer of warmth for the days when when it's sunny, but still slightly chilly. And they are a good way to layer and bring little variation to your attires.

Balmoral boots for different occasions

Balmoral (dress) boots are not the most common sight on the streets. But still it is time to give a little more attention to this elegant and smart shoe type. If you wear a suit to work on daily basis, I suggest to have at least a pair of dress boots in your rotation. I start the reviews of fall and winter boots from the formal end of the range. I personally have two pairs at the moment. One pair made of brown calf leather by Grenson and one twot-tone pair made of espresso calf and purple suede by Alfred Sargent. align="alignnone" Antique oak calf mixed with a brown country calf grain shaft by Meermin.

This year I am not gonna write any kind of "gift guide lists" but instead - like last year - I decided to do a short write-up considering my own wish list for this Christmas.
