What to wear on a lazy day.Comfortable dressing.
I would first like to apologise for my lack of posts over recent days.
I appreciate that, as it is Christmas, many people are otherwise occupied with eating, drinking and making merry.
Tis the season for socialising, having fun and spending time with family after all!
Unfortunately, I have also been poorly.
I will not bore you with the details but I slept through most of Christmas day and spent Boxing day getting poked and prodded.
I have been a million miles away from 'Fabulous'...Fake, or otherwise!
I hope your Christmas was more successful than mine and Santa was good to you and yours.
Moving on swiftly to this cosy outfit....
Some days we just need to run errands, walk the dog and do some house work.
Perhaps giving ourselves time to recover from overindulging, or illness?
Or just a well earned lazy day.
Not everyday is a smart or glamorous affair.
Sometimes we just want to slip on something cosy and comfortable.
Despite the need for comfort, there is never any excuse to be sloppy.
Jogging bottoms are for the gym...unless, of course, they are made of leather and worn with killer heels!
This outfit was for a day of catching up on house work and a little bit of dog walking.
However, I still want to be able to answer my door without the shame of pair of leggings and a scabby t-shirt!
This Jumper is OLD...a real vintage piece.
I laughed when one of the actresses on "Call the midwife" (set in the 50's) was wearing an almost identical one, in green.
I love it's kitsch style.
A friend gave it to me after finding it at her elderly mothers house.
We were guessing that it is from the 60's, but can't be sure.
I get such a good feeling from Vintage clothes.
They are (almost always) so well made and I feel that (if they could talk) they could tell some very interesting stories. I feel special when wearing vintage.
I know I have said this before but "old" wool is so much warmer than the modern stuff.
If anyone has any idea why, please let me know!The yarn is slightly 'scratchy' so I wore a soft jumper underneath (more cosiness) and my skinny jeans were obvious super-comfortable choice.
Wool socks and furry boots finished things off nicely.
This is not a glamorous or polished look, that is for sure!
But, sometimes this kind of outfit is the perfect choice. Easy and comfortable with just enough 'personality' to stop it being to boring.
Did you have a good Christmas?
