I almost didn’t include this outfit on the blog.
|Jeans: The Limited (old)
Military jacket: Old Navy (Similar here)
It is ultra casual, maybe too casual? Heck, just a year ago, I wouldn’t have even worn an outfit like this anywhere I expected to be seen, let alone publish photos of myself on the web.

|T-shirt: Torrid (Available here)|
These jeans are at least four years old. I ripped them myself, and the years of frequent wear have worn the holes much more than originally intended. I love these jeans. They’re comfortable and the perfect length for my motorcycle boots.
My motorcycle boots…worn on actual motorcycles….I couldn’t possibly feature these boots on a fashion blog, or could I?
Can you tell I think way too much? I was over-analyzing and taking myself too seriously. It’s just clothes, after all.
Besides, I have always meant for my blog to show everyday style. Life presents itself with many different occasions, and sometimes you just need clothes that you can throw on and go.

I wore this outfit the weekend before last. My honey was still home-bound from his accident, and he was getting super stir-crazy. While I was ready to spend my Sunday lounging at home, surfing the internet, he was longing to get out of the house. I took pity, and we loaded up the kids for a Sunday drive along the Mississipi River on the Great River Road, the Midwest’s version of the Pacific Coast Highway (love you, Cali!).
We had fun checking out a local kid-friendly art fair, nibbling at a delicious fudge shoppe (where I also found this cool snake coil bracelet!), and ending our day at a local Mexican restaurant.
My outfit was perfect for walking around the art fair,
and the military jacket was just the right cover-up for the slightly
chilly temps and occasional raindrops.
All in all, it was a Sunday much better spent than had I trolled the internet all day! Darn it…I hate it when the man is right. 😉
How do you dress for extra casual days?
