This was probably my favourite outfit
on my recent holiday in Madeira (around Christmas). You see, I’m a casual girl at heart, and I want my clothes to be versatile and low-maintenance. I can’t stand anything fussy or delicate or something that restricts my movements. Yet, I hate sloppy dressing. Well, looking at me, you can probably see I’m not exactly a hoodie and a backpack kind of girl (I don’t even own one, to be honest), so this is what I wear on casual days, or when sightseeing on a holiday.
Relaxed, easy-peasy separates are what I live in on a daily basis. It’s almost as if I live my life wearing a sort of capsule wardrobe. And I like it: it makes my life easier if I can just mix and match everything in my wardrobe. Who am I kidding? I’m one of those people who could just wear the same 20 or so pieces over and over again. A seasonal capsule wardrobe, that’s the idea.
I call this casual chic
It’s not the same as smart casual. For example, even though I wore the jacket to afternoon tea at Reid’s Palace, the rest of teh outfit was a no-no as the smart casual dress code specifically said no jeans and no t-shirts. Yet, this outfit is a lot smarter and put-together than what we usually call ‘casual’. I think it’s the jacket: even though it’s a biker style, it still looks smart enough to make the outfit seem a bit more put-together.
