Casual Look

An unusually casual look for me this week. I have been looking out for some clothes which will be ideal for our family trip to Scotland in a few weeks. I spotted a casual light blue cotton shirt priced at £1.50 and then came across this jumper. It cost me £2.50. I thought that the two items would compliment each other and provide a warm but slightly casual look.

I think I may fasten a few more buttons as it can be cold in Scotland and, yes, the  jumper does need an iron!

I will now try to find a casual pair of trousers. I don't really possess any casual trousers - most of mine are black office style which I wear to work during the winter. I did have a brown pair but after quite a few sessions in the garden, they were consigned to the recycling bank! I have been wearing skirts/dresses full time since about mid May but I think I will start wearing trousers again for comfort and versatility on holiday 

I do find it difficult to find trousers that fit well so I think it may take a while to achieve my goal and horror upon horrors, I may end up buying a new pair from a High Street store!


  1. I like the mix of blues together, lovely casual look :)

    I find pants (what we call trousers!) so hard to find as well. I'm short and it's always a pain having to get everything taken up. Jeans are a good casual option, but they can be tricky to find. I know 2 brands that always fit me well so I stick to those and rarely change now, haha!

      I have trouble with my hip/waste ratio and I am not keen on tight trousers due to my modesty standards
