I’m powerless against the pull of James Perse & Splendid for the perfect casual look. Or everyday look, as it were. Since my LIFE is casual. I succumbed just today to a couple more James Perse skirts via Shopbop (the code ends today – INTHEFAMILY20 for 20% off), and am promising myself that I will buy 15 more of these light jersey cardigans – in every color – as soon as there’s a code or sale. I feel like me today, like I’m ready for whatever will come. I feel powerful.
Which is not to say that I would like to dress up sometimes, and I think I would feel great – maybe even more powerful – and look good dressed up (my husband would love it), but I’m not the kind of person who can dress up to run errands, or just to be out. Of course in Austin, my outfits ARE considered dressed-up, at least in comparison to most of the women who are also “out” during the day and not working in an “office” environment with a dress code. My default is an outfit like what I have on above – easy, comfortable, somewhat chic (I think so anyway), and practical for my lifestyle.
Do you feel better “dressed up”? or casual? What is dressed up to you? how does your lifestyle dictate your outfit choices?
