Casual Style

casual style over 50

I’m a casual girl at heart…

Well, if I had to describe my style, I would probably say that I love classic, chic style, but deep down I know I’m a bit lazy and sloppy and can’t be bothered to dress up…

Or, maybe I could say that I’m 50% classic chic, 20% quirky, and 30% Scandi Cool casual… Actually, that sounds better, let’s go with that.

Anyway, we all have days when we don’t feel like putting a lot of effort into dressing up, and that’s OK. Then we just wear something comfortable and get on with life. The whole point of casual style is that you don’t have to think about what you’re wearing and can focus on other things.

For most people, the more casual outfits are reserved for weekends. And at first glance, this is a typical weekend outfit: jeans and a parka. And yes, as it happens, these pictures were taken on a Sunday. But that’s beside the point.

Because I could also wear this to work, and I have worn something very similar on many occasions. I don’t really need to dress up for work, and that’s why I don’t have a separate work wardrobe. And to be honest, there’s not much difference between my weekday and weekend looks, either. Sometimes I go for a more sophisticated, chic look. And sometimes I wear something really casual. What I wear on a given day depends on my mood, the weather, and the situation. In that order.

    Your style may be casual but it's very attractive. (My natural instinct is toward casual also.)

    Casual, maybe, but with your own classy style , no sloppy casual here.

      Thanks, Jill. Well, I save the sloppy casual for when I'm just staying at home all day… I have those days, too. Sloppy casual, I mean.
