I like the word “indolence.” It makes my laziness seem classy. ~Bern Williams
If you haven’t noticed, I do like lazy mornings… especially ones where an equally half-awake breeze just barely ruffles the curtains and my hair. And Fridays. Fridays are definitely the time to have those sorts of mornings.
I’ve written on the art of lounging before, and shared a ‘nothing’ morning outfit. Today, I’ll be sharing another, as it’s my favourite thing to do. What I mean to say is, dressing up is all lovely and glamourous but it’s the outfit that you wear when you’ve nowhere to go that intrigues me more. There’s something really fun about taking pieces that don’t look like they’re going to rush out the door with a triple shot macchiato to catch the first bus, and putting them together so that you can confidently answer the knock at the door without looking down and wishing you didn’t look like you’ve yet to brush your teeth.
Top: Disney Store Snow White long sleeve thermal tee (2014)
Being on a Disney kick lately, I just had to wear my new Snow White thermal tee, and the colours complement nicely with my skirt. Watercolour is also my chosen paint medium, and I love that it is incorporated into this top; it makes it really dreamy and unique. (Click here to get one –they’re on sale!)
Lastly, these ballet slippers are the comfiest. I have never liked the standard fare of slippers, and heeled ones are really too much for everyday use… so my ballet slippers have served me very well indeed!
So what makes a lounging outfit pretty and presentable? I’ve this theory that it should not be too serious, but neither should it be hideously cheesy. It’s OK to wear a piece featuring your favourite character or graphic statement, but be sure that the colours and design aren’t garish, and if you go with words… I suggest keeping it classy. Having ‘JUICY’ written across the seat of your pants is not the way to look stylish and put together! Comfort is important, but more fitted pieces keep the overall ensemble from looking frumpy. A good rule of thumb is to wear something that you wouldn’t mind bumping into the cute neighbour in while picking up the mail or taking the garbage out.
Have a lovely start to the weekend!!
