Keep Your Feet On The Ground

Someone recently asked one of my sisters what I look like when I'm not "dressed up." Dressed up being their term for what I wear most days and feature on my blog. Well, while I have jeans, I don't have sweatpants and even on days when I just laze about the house I'm in a dress. This outfit is definitely my downtime uniform: comfy oversize cardigan (I have several), a mini dress, tights, and flats. It's the perfect outfit for being cozy and doing nothing special at all. I even did my hair all casual; note the pony tail. My new cardigan from Modcloth is a lot softer than my usual choice and is inspiring me to lay on the couch and watch movies...

  3. Being that you wear dresses in the house with tights, I imagine you to be one of those glamourous mums (when you do have children) who wears dresses, necklaces and lipstick at all times.

    Not that you're high maintenance, your idea of comfort is just different from the norm.

  10. well it is a beautiful down-time outfit and I can see why you would want to lounge around in it all the time!!!

  11. I love the relaxed outfit!

    I don't wear dresses around the house in the winter, but I do in the summer. I don't own sweatpants, only one pair of yoga pants that are used for yoga. There are so many styles of clothes out there that can be perfectly comfortable for lounging without resorting to a Snuggie and beat up pair of college sweatpants. Hooray for you showing the world you can look pulled together no matter the time or place!

  12. So essentially you look fantastic all the time!

    I don't wear sweatpants either, but at home I generally just wear my PJs, because I have a lot of pets that can not only cover all my clothes in fur, but accidently put holes in sweaters with their claws and such.

  13. It's funny, I find dresses the most comfortable thing for walking around in, but not terribly comfortable for lounging around in... the tights start to slide down and the dress rides up and wrinkles all over the place. I tend to change into pyjama pants at home... it also makes my clothes last longer.

    That cardigan would definitely feature in any loungewear outfit of mine however!

  14. You look so cute!! And your photos on the swing are very neat. I'd look all crazy taking photos on a swing and you make it look effortless:) Perfect for a casual outfit.

  16. I love this laid-back look. And the cardigan looks the the comfiest cardigan in the whole world..

    Dresses are so much more comfortable than pants!

  17. I much prefer to lounge around in a dress as well. Couple that with an oversized cardi and there's not much that's cozier.

  18. I'm impressed -- I dress in rags around the house!

  19. I dont think people realize how easy it is to wear a dress! you just put one thing on and you're done with most of your outfit. Instead of fussing over coordinating tops and bottoms.

    my lazy day go to outfit is a big tshirt and leggings...perfect for staying inside because our home is pretty chilly

  20. i kind of divide my wardrobe into "work clothes" (coffee shop- locally owned, so no uniform) and "class clothes" (i try not to wear jeans to class!). i definitely love lounge clothes at home ... dresses and skirts are comfortable, but i dont like lounging in tights!

  21. Cute outfit! That sweater has been making the rounds in the blogosphere lately, but I like how you style it here. :) I also wear dresses off-duty, and am often told that I "don't need to dress up so much." I think nowadays many women wear dresses less often, so they forget how comfortable they can be! To me, jeans are uncomfortable... I much prefer a slouchy cardigan and roomy dress!

  22. I might have to follow your lead and be better dressed in my lounging time. I always think about it, but sweats are warmer...

    ReplyDelete
  23. this is a lovely everyday outfit! you look super comfy but still put together! :)

    i wander, i wonder

  24. That cardigan makes me warmer just looking at it! I love it--so perfect for a cozy winter day! And I'm with you about dresses being the most comfortable, but the thing that gets me is the tights! I have yet to find a pair comfortable enough to lounge in!

  25. Indeed, that cardigan looks ridiculously comfy... plus it is really cute too... Double pluses!

  26. Haha I actually like this outfit more than some of your other ones. I'd love to see more 'nothing special' outfits. The cardigan is gorgeous

  27. I really like this outfit. The colour of the cardigan is lovely. One of my friends asked me before whether I ever just slum around in really casual stuff, like trackpants etc. I don't and pretty much wear skirts/dresses with the occasional jeans too! Everybody has different versions of comfort clothes.

  28. Well this is lovely! I love the sweater. That is quite the nice outfit to be lounging around in at home.

  29. This is my fave. That sweater must now be mine!

  30. Oh brilliant, when you're not 'dressed up', very nice post in response =P It doesn't surprise me that, while your hair (amazing pony tail, so long) and flats are all casual like, you're still totally gorgeous rebecca and haven't strayed from your style at all.

  36. You lounge around in a dress? You, madam, are more woman than I will ever be, haha. I always get too cold/can't sit like a lady/tangled up in my clothes.
