This morning Tiny G heads with his daddy to the Pasadena Rose Bowl Aquatic Center for his first-ever swim lesson! There were a couple of requirements for the class: (1) Swim diapers – Tiny will be wearing Pampers Splashers in a Sesame Street pattern. (2) Swim trunks – Tiny is going with a pair of Patagonia Baby Baggies in the Lions, Tigers & Rhinos pattern. Oh, boy! (3) Sun hat – Naturally he has a matching Lions, Tigers & Rhinos hat to go with.

There’s been a fair amount of discussion about what to wear to the various inaugural balls, and a fantastic story on the subject written by my friend Adam, which will appear in tomorrow’s Image section of the LA Times (click here for sneak preview). But what about fashion for the masses who will be freezing their tails off on the mall? My friend Emily is DC-bound with her family, and here’s her plan:
I think I’ll take a puffy vest and a big warm coat to go over it. Long johns. Ski socks. I might buy some Sorels—I’ve wanted them forever and I think they’re kind of chic.
I’m totally with Emily on the Sorel front. I have a pair of classic Caribous in buff that are going on 18 years old, so it’s probably time to update. I’m loving the Joan of Arctic model with faux fur trim in “hawk” (see above photo). Here are some favorite picks to complete the inaugural look.
Burberry short double-breasted trench in cashmere/wool
Patagonia down vest in sable.
Missoni cashmere color-block gloves.
