Known Unknowns

Monday morning, coffee and the white shirt, gray tie, and the silver pocket square. Wednesday, toast and coffee, the classic blue blazer and well-polished penny loafers. Casual Friday, a tan banded-collar, long-sleeve shirt and the penny loafers again. Saturday morning, quick-drying workout shirt and shorts for the treadmills and the toning weights at the gym followed by a long shower and shave. Saturday evening, the dark blue summer frock—the one with rainbow polka dots—and the red high heels.
