Elegantly casual are perhaps not words that sit happily beside each other? they actually sound like an oxymoron… However these were the only words I could think of to describe the outfit that I recently wore out for supper, at our local pub.
Do you know there are actually rules about this stuff, especially at holiday resorts and on cruises?
“…Evening casual elegance differs from daytime casual elegance, but the general rule is to wear something you’d wear to a country club or upscale restaurant. Men dress shoes, loafers or dress sandals; dress shirts with sleeves; and long pants or maybe a pair of Bermudas depending on the resort. Sleeveless shirts aren’t allowed. Women can wear skirts, pant suits or sundresses…”
Oooh la di dah! I dislike dress rules and avoid them at all costs! Here then is my version of casually elegant…
Dark Denim Jeans, a pretty blouse and high heels.
When it gets a bit chilly and you decide to have coffee outside…(as we often do) simply throw on a cosy but pretty piece of knitwear and no I dont mean a cardi!
This one is so soft and yes crochet fans I could have made it, but it would have taken me months just to weave in the ends and then summer would have been over…

Haha look at me tossing my hair around… (actually it was sticking to my lipstick, so annoying when that happens)
Oh my gosh have you seen their new Autumn boots? (yes I know its still July but I do like to be first in the queue!
You may already know if you read this that I am a genuinely huge fan of JD Williams fashion, the quality vs the price is always a wonderful suprise…but dont take my word for it go see for yourself?
So what do you consider elegantly casual to mean, do you think I got this one right?
Have to admit that I actually bribe the photographer (aka my gorgeous other half) with a meal at the pub after an ‘exhausting’ photo shoot such as this, he always volunteers what a man eh?
