Casual Dressing For Everyday Life

In And Out All Day Long

 

Casual dressing, what do you wear on ordinary days? I want comfort along with style. And so my answer is keep it as simple as possible.

 

Casual outfit

Because I have a home office, most of my days are just generally casual dressing days! I always have lots to do with nothing in particular that is calling out for special dressing concerns. Many times I call that day Monday.  Since I’m busy clearing up all those loose ends from the weekend and preparing myself for the coming week, I never really know what my day will hold. And so my dressing style needs to be simple and casual.

Casual dressing

Today I am wearing an outfit that has been in my closet for ages. It’s simply shorts, a top and flip flops. That’s one of my definitions of casual Floridian dressing. Sloppy doesn’t do it for me, but simple and comfortable, that’s my attitude.

As always, “thanks” for joining me and stopping by Distinctly Southern Style.

Springtime Red Dress

Coral Works For My Red Dress

Red Dress

Red Dress

I have several upcoming social events on my spring and summer calendar that are described as cocktail attire.  I am growing a little tired of my “little black dresses”.

As I am watching spring unfold with color is all around me, I am feeing like some red. Because of  my hair and skin tone, red is a hard color for me wear. Some shades reds work, but when shopping I find that they are far and few between. Lately I have discovered the color coral. It is great! It has the bright fun of red with just the right tones of peachy pink.  My coral neck chain dress  is by Cache’. I purchased it is several years ago. So, I have linked a couple dresses that are somewhat similar down below. What I love about this particular dress is that it features a bold gold-tone hardware around the neckline which eliminates the need for jewelry. The sheath silhouette makes this an easy piece to wear and is the perfect go-to for any casual occasion. What do you think of the color coral instead of red for that red dress feel?

Swinging into Spring the Old Navy Way

Old Navy Spring Dress

I really getting into the swing of spring.  How about you? Saturday was quite a busy day! It’s always great when there are lots of fun things to do and this past weekend did not disappoint. I spent the biggest part of Saturday at the community carnival at Palm Chevrolet of Ocala. Later in the afternoon we stopped by to have some outdoor time with my “grand-pups”.  Patches is a  “Labradoodle” , Gracie & Brownie are “Italian Greyhounds” and last but not least Mikey the “Mutt” (he’s the leader of the pack). Love them all. I was able to keep cool all day in my Old  Navy dress.  A simple cotton shift dress and straw hat was all the fashion that I needed for the day.  How did you spend your spring Saturday?

It is always fun to have a good excuse to dress up. And it is even better when it is an event that is going to help others.

Basic Outfit On Any Day

Wearing basic items of clothing has always been my best formula for dressing and building my wardrobe. I almost always wear solid colors but there is always an exception to every rule. I found this black and white print blouse at Chico’s this season. It has become another staple for a go to basic outfit.

The slacks and belt featured in my outfit are several years old.

They were purchased from White House – Black Market.
