Whereupon I tackle casual

I feel like I'm channelling my beloved Vix whenever I wear a maxi skirt!
This is from one evening last week; I was popping over to Justine's for a bit, and felt the casual vibe upon me.
It isn't something I feel I do well, or easily!
Hahahahaaaa Pee Pee tail!

I think that's the most casual I have seen you since I started blogging! I love that maxi skirt and it looks like the kitties approve.

You do look casual - but still done with 3 times as much thought and style as most of us. It's a lovely skirt.

You do look casual compared to your normal style, but you still look awesome! I love that maxi skirt on you. I think I want to tackle Maxi skirts this summer - after years of avoiding them....

Max said...

You look so long and lean in that beautiful skirt, it appears you can wear absolutely anything and look awesome!

Hannah said...

Louise said...

I have to say, you're channelling Vix very well in that outfit. The look suits you, everytime I see that handbag though I drool. It's excellent. Xx

You are EXQUISITE in that maxi darling - I ADORE the colours! The orange headpiece is quite perfect with it.

Now, I hate to be the one to tell you that that bag is hideous. Send it to me and I'll have my people 'take care' of it for you. I know, I'm a good friend.

Loveyourmaxi, Sarah xxx

Vix said...

That's my kind of casual with added cat's tail!
Love that maxi on you but love anything on you, you gorgeous creature.
Love you!!!!!!!!!!!

You can't beat a casual maxi! Superb!

Shewearscrazywell said...

I love long skirts...I always feel very Frida-esque when I wear them. You really look amazing in long skirts...but then again...you always look so fabulous! Hearts, Janna Lynn

Rose&Bird said...

You look great - the skirt is gorgeous! I think the secret to looking great is to only have fabulous clothes in your wardrobe - that way you can't reach for scuzzy tracksuit bottoms if you want to dress down x

Very lovely, methinks you can get away with casual with more confidence more often, as you still pull off looking individual and splendiferous, H! xxx

pastcaring said...

Now you see that still doesn't look like most people's everyday casual to me! The maxi is just gorgeous, you've got your hair up with that lovely headpiece, you are bejewelled and have that scrumptious bag...
Which bit is casual? The t-shirt? the cardi?
Sorry, Madam, but you just can't help yourself, you are full-on FABULOUS on every occasion, and that's that! Wouldn't have you any other way, babe! xxxxxxxxxxxx

Lena said...

Whenever I think maxidress/skirt I too think of Vix. That's a pretty little sweater and of course I love your bag. Your kitties are too funny

Krista said...

Helga have I ever told you how much I feel like that name suits you, well it does, I love it! Your casual puts most people's casual to shame, you are darling in this maxi and the purse is BADASS!

I wuv the kitty cats getting in on the action.

You gorgeous casual woman. *ehhee*
You are a wondeful burst of color to help wake me up as I have not had any coffee yet.
That peacock bag is so fabulous and you look delightful in a maxi.

Miss Rayne said...

Thats lovely, about as casual as I get too. Though compared to what most people in my town wear its practically 'black tie'

Tomye said...

You wear it well...don't dis the casual maxi, it is a billion times better that the pajama pants women in the US wear as casual. -T
