Trousers, Shirt, Vest, Tie

Well it has been another hectic week of property searching. We still haven't found anything. Although we did find a really run-down old house that was built in the mid-1800's. It must have been lovely at one time but it was a wreck. And by wreck I mean it had no floors (you could literally see directly into the basement from where the first floor should have been) and you could also see outside through the gaps in the walls. The roof was sagging too. We might actually have considered it as a summer get-away project if we hadn't discovered the island it is on is slated to have over 30 windturbines put up, some of which will be almost right next door. I'm a little concerned about the health effects of anything that hasn't been proven safe, so we must continue our search elsewhere. I must admit, I'm getting awfully tired of being in a car for 10 hours every other day while looking for property. 

It has still been pretty cool most days, so my outfits have been more or less the same. Wide leg trousers, shirt, vest, tie. 


Close up of my favourite tie. It's vintage-ish and 100% silk.
I wear it most days although I do have several other ties. 

That's All.

  1. Every time I see you wearing a vest, I MYSELF WANT TO WEAR A VEST. Bummer about the floorless, turbine-neighboring house, but maybe the right one is just around the corner! Preferably away from turbines and with floors! :) Good luck!

  2. Wow, that house - or remains of a house - must have been rather awesome to see in person. Out here on the west coast of Canada it's exceedingly rare to find buildings or homes that old (given that the west was settled so much later - in Canadian terms - than the east), and I would have utterly adored the chance to spend a few minutes in (or safely nearby, if it lacked floors) such a wonderful relic of a home. I'm sure the perfect old house is just waiting out there for you still, fear not.

  3. House-hunting is a heartwrenching ordeal, I really feel for you - my other half and I are in the early stages, again, after our previous househunting got scuppered. It's such early days and I'm already feeling like it's going to be one big compromise after another to get something fairly nice in our very limited budget!

    I don't own a waistcoat, perhaps I should try one - your outfit is very cute.

  4. This outift is lovely - I'm always eyeing my husband's ties enviously (so pretty!) but have never been quite sure how I would wear them. Shirt and vest is the answer!
