Layering under a blanket






My dress code as of late has been primarily for comfort, indeed I have spent the majority of the day curled up underneath a knitted blue blanket. Comfort wear for me comes under two distinct catergories, that of the thick sweats and lovely knitted jumpers, and the slightly less thought of, thin and easy moving layering. As such I went for the latter choice, rather subdued in colour, however easy and most importantly, comfortable, to move around and sit in.

The bib front mandarin collar shirt, is one that some readers may remember from a previous post, which I coupled with a simple grey cardigan and a chunky knitted scarf. I decided to wear rather baggy fitting cotton trousers, that I use as 'home trousers', so to speak, given my penchant wearing them on days at home. The tapered ends are a feature I find easier to wear, I dislike wearing wide ended trousers for some reason. I realise the shape of the trousers may not be to everyone's liking, however for wearing around the house they are indispensable.

  14. Great outfit! I love when people's "hanging out at home" outfits still look amazing!

  15. Beautiful. I love how everything is so...organic, all the way down to your shoes.(I have very sensitive skin that gets irritated with anything synthetic.) Shirt, pants, and your good looks of course give off an exotic, 'Prince of Arabia' feel almost... :-)

  17. Hope you're feeling better, DK.

    You're the most stylish guy I know in comfy outfit. close up shot of your shirt is quite good. I like that fabric a lot. Not a big fan of hammer pants but you rock in those. :)

  22. You are darling!

    My boyF has the similar house pants that he lounges in. They are Armani though, and I swear they improve his mood greatly when he's in them....nothing like some couture loungewear, if I do say so myself!

    Almost worth hanging in just to wear them (they would look a lil goofy in public--teehee)

    Cheers! LuVvy
