Casual days and play dates...

Contrary to popular belief, I don't look like I've just stepped out of the pages of a magazine everyday.... (LOL!!!) I am a mum, so in all honesty most of my days are spent in leggings and long tops or shhhhh....pyjamas. But when I do venture out of the house for other associated mummy tasks, I like to look nice but it has to be practical, flexible and provide good coverage (no builders bum for me thank you muchly!)

On a Thursday Poppy and I go to the play group and my VERY active 21 month old keeps me running around, bending over, sitting on the floor and climbing into tents for the whole 2 hours, so I thought further to my review piece on the Simply Be Chloe Super Stretch Skinny Jeans, I thought I'd really road test them this time!!

Scarf - H&M (old)
Striped top - Littlewoods (Last season)
Cardigan - Primark
Jeans - Simply Be
Loafers - Miss L Fire

I am happy to report that the jeans more than stood up to the test, there was no bottom cleavage, the knees didn't bag, and I still looked presentable at the end!!

Now a quick spotlight on my shoes, they have popped up a couple of times in my posts but I haven't gone into any great detail about them. I completely and utterly adore them, they are the Miller loafer from retro inspired footwear range Miss L Fire I cannot rave enough about the design of their shoes, and the quality of their shoes enough. I picked these little beauties up for just £20.00 (rrp £80.00) they are so comfortable, have a vintage feel about them and for me its all about the details a feature that Miss L Fire never fail to deliver on. Their signature bird print lining is just lush and these shoes in particular have a cute feature; under the actual tassels is a gold drawing of the tassels!! how cute is that?!!

Please excuse my veiny feet!!!

What do you wear on casual days? Jeans, leggings or are you a strictly skirt/dress kind of gal?

  2. Usually I'm a skirt / dress girl (tights or leggings, depending on how cold my feet are / how short it is). I do have 2 jeans, one for kicking about in, one for smart(ish). I'm after a nice pair of black jeans though, for when I want something a little bit more than leggings...

    Might have to give these a try then!!
