You may have noticed that my outfit/style posts have been a bit…sparse…lately.
Honestly: we’ve been working on getting the house unpacked, organized, painted, and all that good stuff. So…I’ve been dressing up my house more than myself lately. My daily attire in the past 3 weeks has pretty much consisted of ratty clothes that I can get dirty/splatter paint on. Not exactly picture worthy.
Every once in a while, I’ve had some days when I’ve gotten dressed. But even on those days, it’s been a bit of “casual Katie” in regard to style. Y’all – sometimes you just need those days. I fully intend on putting myself together on a more regular basis…probably starting next week when the holidays roll around. I guess I should get dressed for family events and such, huh?
Anyway, I know I’ve mentioned that we’ve had some unseasonably warm weather here in Florida (almost around 80 degrees lately, yiiikes), but there have been a few days when we’ve had temperatures in the 60s. That has called for donning a sweater and corduroys. These green cords were a pair I snagged for $24 on clearance at J.Crew last year. Seriously. $24!?!?! I couldn’t believe it, as their original price tag was almost $100. They’re the matchstick cords, and I love the way they fit. They’re definitely a comfortable pair…and if you’re looking for some, there are some colors on sale for $39.99 right now. The construction is done well, and they wash nicely. I’d say they’re worth a try if you find them on sale like I did!
I’m in the place now where I’m mixing my summer clothing in to my fall/winter pieces. This dress was one of my absolute favorites this summer (from Target, no less!), and I wasn’t ready to retire it to the back of my closet yet. If you have a shorter dress and want to winterize it, pop on a pair of leggings, knee high boots, and a long sleeve shirt or sweater. Looks like an entirely new outfit, and appropriate for the fall. Works for me!
Have you had a lot of casual style days leading up to the holidays?
