Lazy Dresser...

40+ style

We all have those days...

You know what I mean: when we we feel uninspired, overwhelmed, exhausted. Maybe it's work getting a bit too hectic, or we just need to take a break from the never-ending thinking, planning and organising that every-day life demands. And on those days dressing up just seems like another chore, and we just can't be bothered.

Enter the safe bet: 

the outfit you can pull out of the closet and put on without thinking about it, and trust that you look presentable enough to hide the fact you'd rather be slouching on the sofa watching telly...

jersey dress
dress: L.K. Bennett (old) / cardigan: Brora (old) / sunglasses: Prada (old) / shoes: Clarks
Well, this is my safe bet: a cashmere cardigan and an old jersey dress (yes, I have a lot of those: I hate ironing and they travel well). I've worn this outfit to work on many occasions, usually when I need all my energy just to get out of bed because of an early morning start. When these pictures were taken I was on my way to a casual lunch, feeling a bit under the weather, uninspired and running my endless to-do list in my head. Well, as I said, we all have those days...

What's your dressing up strategy for days when you feel uninspired?

    1. Thanks, Jessica. Yes, wash-and-wear clothes, that's my thing. And cashmere cardigans, nothing is easier.

  3. That is a very cute dress. And cashmere is never a bad idea. My go to outfit is a print tunic and black Capri pants. It's almost a uniform for me.

    1. I love Capri pants, too, in summer. Cashmere is sort of my winter uniform, always perfect.

    1. Thanks! A dress and a cardi is the easy option when you don't have time or the energy to come up with an outfit, and I have quite a few dresses and cardis I can mix and match.

  5. The blue and pink together is so pretty. I do love to wear dresses when I can't figure out what to wear.
