One of those days

casual style over 40

Real life style…

Or lack of style, rather, as evidenced by these photos… But guess what, not every outfit is a style statement. Sometimes we just throw something on and get on with the drudgery of life. Well, I do, anyway…

Yes, I admit it: there are days when I simply have no energy or motivation to put together an outfit. I might have too many things on my mind, feel a bit stressed out, or just hate everything in my wardrobe (for whatever reason). Maybe the weather is just awful. And my hair is a mess. And by that I mean a bigger mess than it usually is, whatever that means. To be honest, I don’t think other people notice if I’m having a bad hair day. Probably because everyday is a bad hair day, more or less…

Anyway, this was one of those days: I just couldn’t be bothered. It happens, I’m fine with it.

    You look really nice if that is your ‘ I don’t care day’, fine. I’m a very casual dresser (a bit like you Finns) but as I am 72 I feel it’s important to make the effort, just for me, I never leave the house without what I consider a well thought out outfit and I see you don’t either.

      Thank you. I have to admit I make more of an effort going out on a Saturday, even if it’s just going shopping. On weekdays, going to work, I’m in too much of a hurry in the morning and I get a bit sloppy.

    I think you look perfectly comfy&cool, ready to manage any Real Life drudgery!. Sometimes having ‘uniforms’ makes life easier, I believe that most people have their favorites. Mine is wearing a dress, so simple and it also makes me feel that I made an effort!

      Oh yes, I totally rely on a ‘uniform’ on weekdays. And weather plays a huge part in that, too. I’m beginning to think that I’ve been wearing the same 5-6 pieces most of the time for the past 3-4 weeks, though…
      A dress is a great idea. I need to get one. For spring. Now I’m eyeing winter coats…

    As usual, you look fab! Love the color of your jacket. That color looks great on you. I have those “outfits” too and it seems like I’m wearing them more and more lately. My life has become very casual and I’m loving it. We are expecting our first snow today! UGH Arlene from NJ

      Thanks, Arlene! Would you believe me if I said that I have at least 4 coats in that colour? I have no idea how that happened…
      Snow! Ugh, indeed. I know it’s going to happen here, too, sooner or later, but I hope not quite yet. Although we did have some snow one day. It didn’t last more than a day, though.
