(ABOVE) Whether it’s in the 50s or 80s Fahrenheit, I often reach for chinos and a button-up shirt as a bottom layer.

NEVER-FAIL CHINO PANTS & A BUTTON-DOWN SHIRT
As I write this, it’s 62 degrees Fahrenheit outside, with a high of 68 expected sometime later today. That means I’m pulling on a nice, thick cotton cable-knit cardigan before I go out the door.
The day I wore the outfit pictured here, it was 85. This just goes to show that the winter weather in Naples can vary quite a lot. Anytime between now until April, we could have temperatures as high as the 80s or as low as the 50s, and sometimes within the same week.
I find separates come in handy (and layers added with sweaters and jackets), because I can mix and match just a few pieces to get me through either hot or chilly days. Those of you who’ve been following my blog know well that among my favorite casual bottom-layer pieces all year long are white jeans, chino pants or khaki pants and a button-up shirt. You’ve seen me wear those a lot! 🙂 . This Ralph Lauren shirt is a 100-percent cotton stretchy knit, so it’s especially easy to move in. I love it alone or peeking out from beneath a thick cardigan or pullover.
My shoes also are new. They’re by Trotters and are available in a variety of colors. Another plus is they come in narrow, medium, and wide widths. I love that, since I have such a hard time finding narrow shoes.
Got to get to the grocery store now.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog!
