Old (for) school

Despite being too old for school (well, unless I went back as an, erm, mature age student), today I went out looking a bit school boyish. But I’m a rebel school boy, as my jeans are ripped and patched. Oh, you wild child, you.

I met up with my sister this morning and part of our conversation about how we dress differently for when we are with our children, depending on their ages and what we will doing, included me saying “So, I wouldn’t wear this sort of outfit to the park, for example. It’s a bit formal and the shirt is a bit restricting for lots of clambering about.” Naturally, the weather was relatively mild, so I did, indeed, go to the park with the littlest Bolters. Ever say one thing to then find yourself doing exactly the opposite?

Outfit: Uniqlo grey wool flannel blazer | Gap grey merino V neck jumper | Zara white cotton tuxedo shirt | Uniqlo Heattech camisole (I now buy size M for the extra length, v’s the S) | Only patched jeans (def should have bought 27, not 28. Tumble drier about to be used) | Marks & Spencer pewter ankle boots | Tie Rack purple wool men’s scarf
