I wore this to my book event at the Galleria EILEEN FISHER store a few weeks back. The afternoon was such fun! I read from my book twice, chatted with customers and attendees, and helped lots of lovely women pick out new EF garments for themselves. I might also have snacked excessively on the delicious fruit and custard tarts that the store generously provided. Such yum.

    Hi Sally,
    I really enjoy following your blog. I have noticed a peculiar correlation as we move into winter. In the summer/fall heat, your outfits were dominated by boots. Now that we are moving into the winter season you are wearing a great deal of pumps and warm-weather shoes. Today when I left for work in St Paul it was 18 degrees. I had on Born boots with tights and smart wool socks. When I saw today’s photos, I thought burrr, and I hope that Sally is not driving around today because if she gets a flat tire she will freeze her toes. Please let me know your thoughts on this. Thanks.

      Hi Amy! I don’t generally post my outfits on the same day they were worn. As I mentioned above, this one is from a couple of weeks ago … on a day when it was 65 degrees, actually!

      You’ll be seeing more boots once the cold truly settles in, but I find that on days when I want to look and feel more dressed up, I tend toward tights and pumps instead. Looking back through recent outfits, though, I think my boots have gotten their fair share of love over the past few months. 😉

    You are rocking that Eileen Fisher sweater so hard I am really tempted by it. Generally, I find her clothes look fantastic draped on the models in the catalog, but boxy and sacklike on me, but you may have inspired me to reconsider!

    Sal, how do you feel choosing your clothes for an event in person compared to posting a picture to your followers on the blog? On the one hand it’s a smaller group but on the other it’s live and in person. Sophia

      Well, for events there are usually more details to consider. If I’m going to be standing and walking for long periods, I need to choose shoes that won’t tear up my feet. Since I usually sweat during events, I try to pick washable tops! If it’s a speaking engagement and I’ll be far away from the audience, I try to consider color and pattern. In this case, since it was an event at Eileen Fisher, I wanted to wear one of their garments to show my support.

      Non-event outfits are still worn by me during the week, and often reflect similar considerations – I go to meetings, work with clients, attend photo shoots, and lots of other activities that require careful clothing and shoe choices. But on days when I’m just working from home, I can be a little more adventurous.
