Casual Saturday – Skinny jeans, Converse and his shirt

Sometimes you have things to do, you want to be comfortable and heels and a dress just will not work for the errands on your to-do list.  That day was today!  Cleaning up around the house, a bit of gardening, getting groceries… it has to be done sometimes.  So what to wear when you want to be comfy but not look like you just threw on the first things your hands touched in the morning? Grab his shirt, pull on your jeans and Chucks, put your hair up some kind of way and go!  And in the case of a couple of these photos, be a bit silly along the way.  You’re never too old for having some fun.  In the words of the Joker – Why so serious!

I confess,  I did wear some lip gloss.  I just feel so undressed without my earrings and some lip stick no matter what I’m wearing.  Dressing up will have to wait for Mother’s Day 🙂

Until next time ♥

Flared Overalls

Overalls on adult women is a look that you either love or you don’t.  I’ve had a few pair in my time but this style is a first for me.  These Flea Market Flares from Madewell are as their name states – flares!  And unlike the old overalls from the past, these are cut to hug a woman’s curves; not too tight not too loose.  I love the silhouette these overalls create.

The amount of flare is just right for me but even at my average height, I have to wear wedges with these overalls else they will drag the ground.  I could have them hemmed but that would take away part of the flare which kind of defeats the purpose, right?  So with these it’s wedges or platforms for footwear.  We were heading out on a “date” so instead of going casual with a tee shirt, I dressed the look up a bit with a white fitted mans shirt; sleeves rolled up and unbuttoned just so.  And I’m almost never without my Fitbit HR on my wrist.  Steps count no matter where I’m stepping to.
