Casual Autumn Dressing | Taupe Sweater Over A Red Check Shirt

Casual autumn dressing: Taupe sweater, check shirt & black peg leg pants
It’s one extreme to the other with my outfits this week: from Tuesday’s pink Mulberry dress to casual autumn dressing via a taupe sweater and check shirt today. Both were worn during the stormy period last week – hence the same hairstyle each time (milkmaid plaits can just about cope with a gale force wind)!

This is probably the comfiest outfit I could muster without wearing jeans – peg leg trousers are a great alternative to boyfriend jeans and can be dressed up or down as the mood takes you (much more comfortable for a lazy Sunday than skinnies too). Some layering for warmth and a pair of brogues to add some colour to my feet add to the easiest non-denim look ever.

How about you – do you manage casual, comfy dressing without resorting to jeans?

    My casual look is made by very comfortable skinnies (no pinching the belly), a wide but cute sweater thrown on top of it and flat but nice looking boots or booties to go with it.

    Oh, such a great look! So comfortable and cute!
    Pretty much any day I'm wearing pants other than jeans I celebrate haha. A pair of skinny navy trousers with simple flats is definitely my go-to πŸ™‚

    Love your outfit – as always! Apart from jeans, I have a brown pair of M&S trousers, which I wear with brown lace-ups that I bought in a Spanish market (sooo comfortable!) and a variety of brightly coloured tops. Today I'm wearing pink: my new favourite colour!

    I love your casual looks, Catherine! You always manage to look pulled-together yet comfortable. And of course you know I love those brogues. I recently bought a pair of cropped black pants, and I feel so chic and French in them with flats. They're my go-to weekend and travel pants.

      I know what you mean about that French feeling, Paulette (are you French? You have a lovely French name!!) Thanks hun xoxo
