WHEN JUST AT HOME pt.2; more soft, more comfy

Last week I wrote about what I wear around the house or on days that I am not particularly "going anywhere". My knitted and stretchy skirt and dresses yes, but there is an even more comfy version that I often do when going to work or going out to the countryside. More practical, but still nice;I like to layer a lot of whatever nice and soft, those items that I have but not get to wear too much otherwise.

Mostly comfy tops or thermals, my print tees and shirts, stockings, a lot of socks and leg warmers, the more the better, a bit boho but even more hobo (you know, in a good way :)

The colder it gets, the more I just layer, my favourite for the time being the a pair of funny black puffy knee-lengh trousers that combined with grey knitted knee socks, my vintage collar knit and old work wear boots (I have a bunch of those as I get new ones every year in the harbour) make me look like it's the thirties and I'm gong skiing (that some of you on my facebook page wondered about yesterday).

But mostly it's just a long cardi, tights and a pair of ridiculously small shorts (as I never get to wear such around town).

Everything in the pictures is old, except for my motorcycle print shirt which is new from Morgan's & Philips.

Carys & Anonynous : thank you, but I do have to admit that I did my hair (great tip: wear a hat, you only need to do half of it :) and something of a nude make up before taking pictures, so the pictures are not straight from the couch!

I'm so glad you did a post like this! Now I don't feel so bad about myself hahaha!

your hair is looking so nice, I didn't realize how long it was. have you been toning it warmer or is it the light?

Sam Harvey said...

love this look. i suggest a bulkier skarf though. I guess because you are minimum on the legs. i just bought a ridiculously cool skarf that is out of felt and curvy from curlygirls out of newyork. i love the look. really cool.

sueper said...

lol just did a post in my comfy look - usually shorts long soks and big sweater, nothing beats that home comfy feeling

your hair loose looks great on you too

cakesandshakes said...

In agreement - the hair is awesome longer and a warmer shade. It's so surprising to see you in something of a more contemporary look, probably if you wore that all the time it wouldn't have so much impact, but it's SO cool.

I must say that in my opinion you look even more beautiful ( how is that possible??!! ) in that make up and a bit darker hair, than in the super blonde red lips version.
I really like the pinkish lipstick with that new hair colour.
