A Denim and Chambray outfit for a casual kind of day….

I couldn’t quite get it together today. Sometimes when I start the day by doing jobs, with the result that I get showered and dressed slightly later than usual, it doesn’t work too well. I started off with a skirt, or two, or three, but ditched all of them. Then, to avoid a fall out of the apocalyptic kind, I went for the simplest of simple of combinations of trusty jeans (GAP) –  a trusty shirt (GAP) – and very trusty shoes (Carvela), all of which were in a very neutral colour palette. OK to some it may be boring and lacking a certain edge but that’s where the benefit of normcore comes in. A trend of understated simplicity – it’s perfect for those days when you can’t get it together or you can’t be ar*** because the outfit can be passed off as the ultimate look.

One of our activities for the day, as well as buying school shoes and doing the food shopping, was to go swimming. Luckily the floor blended quite well with my colour scheme for the day. My lovely new basket came along for the ride and if you look carefully, it contains the bikini which I featured on here a couple of weeks ago now. Much to my surprise, it’s now my swimwear of choice.

And just look at the numpty who can’t even dress herself properly after the swim. Tragic!

    Not boring at all, sometimes simple is all you need! I know it's what I'm all about right now as nursing a newborn isn't compatible with necklaces, bracelets & fuss!

    Your mention of swimming prompted me to thank you for your goggles tip recently- having endured the "emptying out every second length" thing, as well as feeling like my goggles were going to disappear into my eyeballs I invested in the larger style and wow what a difference. So thanks again for the tip- totally changed my favourite exercise!
