Ahoy! To a Casual Friday

Thursday, 15 October 2015

Don't even ask me about that title, because I don't even know what it's about! I guess I was relating the stripes on the top to something kind of nautical and related it to ahoy but umm...now I'm rambling and I don't even remember my point - drats!

I'm really not a fan of the casual, laid back, dressed down vibe and I am most definitely not a fan of flats (or anything else that does nothing for my tiny 5'4 frame!) But recently, work and daily life has been getting very tiring. It's amazing how busy my life can get with just a part-time job and a bit of blogging, I dread to think how overwhelming it's going to get once I actually get a full-time job! *Inserts WIDE EYE emoji* But yeah life has been getting very busy recently, and all I have wanted is to live in casual, comfy clothes and flats!
I used to be such a big fan of stripes when I was in Sixth Form, literally every top I owned had to have a stripe on it! Over time though I kind of got bored of stripes, I think I may have overworn them! But now, I am loving them!
For this outfit I have gone for this super casual stripey top from the Primark menswear section (it's actually my dad's) what can I say?  I like men's clothing and I don't yet have a boyfriend to steal clothes from, so I take my dad's instead! Paired with these mom jeans, also from Primark, shiny loafers and I look just about ready for bed - joking, but I do feel very comfortable!
I am slowly falling in love with these flats and they are slowly finding their way into my daily outfits!

  12. I love those flats, haven't been in Peacocks for donkeys. Love this outfit too, casual but doesn't really look it! You still look lovely (and more dressy than I usually am) x

  13. I have a very laid-back style with clothing - swap the mom jeans for skinny jeans and this is my basic outfit! I always think a striped shirt like this is an essential part of a a/w wardrobe.

  15. My office has one of those super casual vibes because we're an online business and therefore never see clients so this outfit is actually perfect for a work day here! Its cute and I love the Mom jeans!
