Pre-Christmas Casual: Last Minute Errands

What to wear when you’ve put off Christmas shopping until the last minute

If you’ve got to run around to get some last minute shopping done, chances are you don’t have a lot of time to spare to think about what to wear. That’s when you just keep it simple.

Here’s a casual, last-minute holiday errands, kind of look.

The best thing to do in any situation where you have limited time to get dressed, is to go with something you already know. In my case, that was pretty much what I wore on Monday, but with a few alterations. Same sweater, same jeans. Different coat, different shoes.

It’s always nice to have a seasonal statement coat in the closet. I was lucky to snag this black watch tartan jacket last year and, unfortunately, it’s now sold out. There’s a lesson there. If you see something unique and it fits your personal style, pull the trigger. You likely won’t see it again.

I’m not much of a beanie guy, but there’s something stylish about a beanie from Drake’s.

Excuse the brevity today. I’ve got some errands to run before the HSS Team party tonight!

Thanks for reading.

      Ah, forgot to put it in the details. It’s by Beams Plus from a few seasons ago.

    What is the brand of the coat – “Bob”? Do they make other coats? Thanks
