Something For The Weekend

Carl Thompson gets weekend ready, with clothes to get you set for whatever Friday throws your way.

For this week’s Outfit of the Week, I wanted to put together a look that’s perfect for Friday office attire – although it could work just as well if you’re heading out for after-work drinks, a cheeky little date with that hot girl off Tinder, or even dinner at a restaurant. Most of us won’t have time to head back home to get changed before heading out again – because, to be honest, that’s just eating into our drinking time! So planning what to wear on Fridays is more important than any other day. But it’s also the most challenging.

If you’ve been reading my blogs recently, you’ll have realised that I’ve been banging on about Donhall & Bell slippers, because I love their comfort and versatility. To add to my pair of black suede ones, I managed to get my hands on their Donegal collection, which for me work better with casual or smart casual wear. I’ve worn these slippers with socks, but they also look great – if not better – without socks. And trust me, they will be comfortable (and not give you blisters like normal new shoes). I’ve then styled the outfit with a pair of dark navy jeans from ASOS, Hawkins & Shepherd’s super-soft luxury light blue button-down shirt, and a grey Reiss blazer with light blue window-pane check, which compliments the light blue weave in the slippers. Finally, as with any complete outfit, I have put on my latest purchase from Kartel Watches.
