Let’s be real for a minute. Sometimes I am pretty casual. I mean, really, really casual. Like this:
Sometimes I leave the house like that. I went to brunch and the grocery store like that and I am going to be honest, I felt pretty cute even though I was wearing sweatpants.
How casual is too casual for you? I think for me, it’s PJs and no make-up. I will swipe on a little gloss and mascara and change into jeans and a tee for so much as a drive thru run. I don’t ever want to leave the house in anything less than I would be comfortable in should I end up at the hospital or police station. You know?
And I’d wear this outfit again. I know some of you will disagree that it is OK to wander around the city in sweatpants, well, EVER. But I felt good. I kind of love those sweatpants. You can’t tell in the Sperry Top-Sider boots (which, oh my goodness, LOVE. Thanks again to both Clare and Sperry Top-Sider) but they are cropped and have a wide band so they hit mid-calf. With a pair of heeled lace up boots and an oversized cardi, they look very Cheryl Cole. Which is an excellent thing in my book. Granted they look a little less chic here but I can be forgiven for wanting to test drive those boots, I think. And they were great. I wore them all day. When I first put them on I was a wee concerned because the leather felt a bit tight (I ordered a 6 and a half. I wear a six in shoes, but I always size up a half size for boots to make room for comfy socks) but after a while, the leather warmed and stretched and molded to my feet. They were super comfortable and I can’t wait to find all sorts of ways to style them! (I am already planning to wear them with black tights, cut offs and a tee, that will be SUCH a cute look.)
