The pillars of our style

Good afternoon, 
ladies,
gents,
hope all is well,
in your own,
personal part,
of the universe,
bubble,
sphere,
whatever works for you.

Here on planet,
Butch,
life is fine.
Not perfect,
not calm,
not stress free!!
but,
fine.

I just finished a,
bowl of All Bran, banana,
and,
Weetabix with unsweetened,
almond milk,
with a shake of cinnamon,
pretty darn tasty,
and,
an efficient use of fiber.

I had my workout,
aerobic cardio,
a la BB,
combination,
dance,
strut,
jogging in place,
lateral side by side,
steps,
to music,
classic rock,
country,
disco and dance music,
half an hour,
followed by vacuuming,
it ain't glamorous,
but it gets the job done.

This week,
at work,
although I hesitate to say,
has been much better.

I am surprised to say,
this,
but,
I miss my shorts a bit
:-)

Ah but, Fall,
the clothes,
Butch heaven,
and this Summer and Fall,
I have found,
pretty much all,
the Fall wardrobe staples,
I needed,
some dark wash jeans,
perfect cut,
from Gap,
on sale,
a grey crew neck sweatshirt,
again from Gap,
an amazing navy dress sweater,
to wear to my cousin's wedding,
and yesterday,
a Shaker knit cotton sweater in black,
basics,
grey, black, navy,
match my entire wardrobe.
The Shaker knit is a medium,
which gives me no end of joy,
I know, I know,
It's silly,
but, whatever gets us through,
the night, no?

This is a good wardrobe assembly,
year for me,
I am finding,
the colours and styles,
I need.
Sweaters and jackets,
even pants and jeans,
if well cared for,
can last a few years,
they better
:-)

As I tried on the shaker knit,
yesterday,
I was reminded,
of a sweater I used to wear,
when I first opened,
my bookstore,
it was a gift from my friend,
Denise,
a navy shaker knit,
with silk in the blend,
Land's End,
a perfect sweater,
I wore it so much,
it ended up having a,
big tear in the back,
I kept wearing it,
I referred to it,
as,
my eccentric bookseller sweater,
it eventually,
died,
of exhaustion,
I weighed at least 60 lbs more then.
So,
things change,
our weight,
our jobs,
our entourage even,
but,
style,
...
style is timeless.
Some years, fashion,
hits the right note,
for our style,
so in years of flannel,
blue,
shaker sweaters and basic,
stuff,
I stock up,
to weather the years,
of neon, pastels,
and,
acid wash

I notice,
that although I have,
changed,
in many ways,
in the last few years,
my style has it's pillars,
I experiment with t-shirts,
boxers, caps, or scarves,
but,
to my oxford button downs,
hoodies,
shaker knits I remain true,
like old friends.
But, as in friendship and life,
you should not allow,
your style,
to become stagnant,
and,
what works at twenty,
might not at fifty,
but,
like life,
we keep climbing,
building,
walkers and shakers,
do not gather dust.

Just some thoughts and ramblings,
on elements of butch style

Be well you all.

Later girls,
BB

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream
