This week, it’s advice from a Field Commander. Here’s what to wear.

For daycare: three types of plaid (two collared shirts, plus the cuffs on your jeans). Accent with orange T and purple/gold high-tops.

On chillier days, go for an earth-toned horizontal stripe knit pull-over; pair it with the same jeans and add hiking boots. Voilà, instant comfort clothes!

When you hit the great outdoors, flannel is a must. Knit toques are perfect for freedom of movement while rock climbing (thanks Chelsea!).

When at the beach  (thanks for a nice vacation, Mimi and Grandpa Ken!) … wear sand.


You’ll notice, I like to accessorize with a hammer or two.

Some people will try to upstage you with ridiculous things like vintage fur coats (thanks Mimi!) and asymmetrical haircuts. For New Year’s, keep it simple. Classic elegance is the key.

When at home, you can really let your true colours shine. Try running around in a hooded towel (thanks Elise!). Mix it up a bit.




And really, when you’re making tea, you don’t have to wear anything at all.
