Casual style – Three different pairs of jeans & T’s

What have you been wearing most during lock-down? I’ve gone through phases. The lounge-wear phase of barely getting properly dressed at all and then onto the casual style phase, wearing basics like I generally do around the house.

There have been a few occasions that I’ve put on a comfortable dress and washed my hair and applied a full face of make-up just to make myself feel better. After all, I’m a fashion blogger, someone that has a passion for clothes, make-up and accessories after all!

In this post, I’m talking about casual style. The easy to wear at home or walk out the door. I’m a massive fan of Bonmarche jeans and one pair I’m featuring here are over four years old!

Casual look no.1 – White denim Suzie Slims

Here are my latest pair of Bonmarche jeans. The Suzie Slim. There are a few reasons why I like Jeans from this brand.

  • Quality. Bonmarche has never failed to please
  • Price. Very reasonable
  • Three different leg lengths to choose from. I buy short to wear with flat sandals, boots and shoes, and tall to wear with heels. The ones featured above are standard length for in-between.

I like the happy long-sleeved T. It’s very lightweight and perfect for our weather at the moment, and this is a good price at £14.00 Bonmarche are offering free delivery for orders over £20.00. I think that’s pretty good.

I’ve added a black belt and sandals to complete the look. The jeans are comfortable, a little on the loose side, I wish they would supply a size eight. That would be the icing on the cake for me, along with the shorter length being available.

It’s the finishing touches that make an outfit, casual style or any style. I’ve opted for silver accessories including my pearl friendship bracelets from Claudia Bradby. I announced some exciting news about the brand in my last weekly edit.

Finding spots in the small garden to take some photos has been challenging. It’s south-facing and it’s so bright at most hours in the day.

I can’t wait to be able to just go outside and take photos elsewhere. I’m really pleased with this new casual style outfit though and I’m interested in hearing what you have been wearing while we’ve been staying in through this lock-down.

Casual Look No.2 The Julie Jegging

I have worn these jeggings so much! They are actually fading at the knee’s now. They’ve been great through all seasons as are all jeans but these have been great to wear with a slouchy jumper and knee-high boots through the winter.

Available in different shades of denim, I would love a pair of these in white. I would wear them all through the summer. They are so comfortable and hug the body nicely with good stretch and they don’t go baggy at all.

The 3/4 length sleeved T-shirt with the key-hole neckline also from Bonmarche and is a couple of years old now. I’ve added a lovely red version in the shop below or there are plain versions of this style available.

I’ve added silver accessories. The new Helix collection from Claudia Bradby and a silver watch from Daniel Wellington

I paired the jeggings with sandals that I received from VanDal shoes late last year. On checking I see that these are still available. There’s a lovely pewter colour available too. If like me you have wide feet you will love these.

Casual Look No.3 The Betty Bootcut

Look three, I’ve saved my favourite Bonmarche Betty Boot Cut jeans till last. Am I one of the few left that Irons creases into the fronts? You can see how much they have been worn, the seam is nearly white!

Thinking about it, I don’t know why I haven’t got the Betty Boot Cut jeans in the long length to wear with heels. I like them to skim the floor and make my legs look longer. I normally wear flat shoes with these which is why I remember ordering them in the shorter length.

One thing I wanted to mention was the quality of Bonmarche’s T-shirts. I have quite a few of them in various colours and the price point for what you get is the best. This square necked T is £7.00 I know it will last for a good few years as my others have.

There are cheaper stores that you can buy T-shirts from but by the end of the season of wearing I bet they are more or less ready for the bin? These aren’t at all flimsy, the material is very good and they stay in shape too. I really recommend them.

I’ve paired white heeled mules to complete the final casual style. I will be putting my slippers on once I’ve finished shooting these photos! The mules are from last year but I’ve added some gorgeous ones in the shop below. I’m tempted to buy them!

I’d love to hear which casual style is your favourite and which type of jean you would go for?

    I’m a new lover of white denim this year Laurie and love this first outfit of yours. The simple slogan tee works really well with this pared down look too.
    Hope you manage to get out and about a bit more as from tomorrow when the restrictions are lifted a bit. Do stay safe up there in the big smoke!
    Take care x

      Thanks Anna. It’s a little easier now we have moved away from the big smoke. We went to Tesco for the first time today in ten weeks. It felt weird to be out! xx

      Thanks Laura. It’s the lighter colours I think. They always suit me better xx

    All three looks are elegant while being casual, but I love number one most of all. TFS.

      Thanks, Clearissa. No.1 is definitely coming out the favourite xx

    I am wearing tunic tops and shorts here lately in Florida. I’m loving that happy tee with the white jeans!

      Hi Chrissy. My shorts are in the wardrobe waiting to make their entrance! I can’t wait for better weather xx

  7. May 4, 2020 / 12:34 pm

    Laurie, I love the names of the Bonmarche jeans! Betty bootcut! So cute and the jeans are fabulous! Your ‘happy’ tee is making me smile. So perfect. I have gone through similar phases of dress…from loungewear to casual jeans outfits. But now I am ready for dressier clothing. Thanks for sharing your fun outfits and linking up!

      Thanks Shelbee. I like the names too xx

    I love the white jeans, plus the white sandals look so comfortable. I’ve bought two items while in lockdown and one of them is a pair of white jeans. I must admit to not wearing them yet as I’d prefer to go out, out in them which of course isn’t going to happen yet. I love all the styles of the denim, they look great on you and the tees! xx

    • laurie
      May 4, 2020 / 5:03 pm

      Hopefully, you will be wearing them soon Alison! Although why not wear them indoors? xx

  9. May 1, 2020 / 4:37 pm

    First, those white sandals are fabulous! Both they and the black with go with everything! I have been doing the same.. some days in lounge, other days I want to wear a dress and do my hair and makeup. Love all the cuts of the denim, they look great on you and the tees are stylish!
    thanks for linking!

      Thanks Jess. Won’t it be great to just get back to normal? xx

  10. May 1, 2020 / 8:52 am

    Ohhhh I love a jegging! They have been my lockdown wardrobe on repeat! I feel like I have made an effort and got dressed, but still comfortable. I have never tried a bonmarch t-shirt. They look like a thicker material, which I prefer with a tee. I hate thin material that shows your bra. All perfectly put together outfits Laurie. You make it look so effortless!

    • laurie
      May 4, 2020 / 5:14 pm

      You should try the Bonmarche Jegging Kerry, You would love them. I know that you’re a shortie like me too xx

  11. April 30, 2020 / 3:53 pm

    Very pretty lounge looks. The print on the middle shirt is playful and would put me in a good mood! I don’t have a pair of jeggings, but saw some recently that I’m tempted to get!

    • laurie
      April 30, 2020 / 10:47 pm

      Hi Kimberly. I find them comfortable. And like I said great during winter with knee-high boots and a longer length cosy jumper xx

  12. April 30, 2020 / 6:15 am

    Love all three looks Laurie, the t-shirt is fun. We need to wear more happy clothes to stay sane 🙂

    All three looks are great. I’m quite top heavy so would probably go for the boot cut jeans and simple t shirt but I have to say my favourite look is the all white with black accessories. So stylish.
    Ps I’ve never tried Bon Marche Jeans but will definitely be giving them a go asap.

    • laurie
      April 30, 2020 / 10:50 pm

      Hi Jeanette. They’re worth a look. Price versus quality is very good xx

  18. April 27, 2020 / 8:50 pm

    I like all three looks Laurie, I have picked that top too and should be styling it next week! I also wear my tops half tucked and quite like how it looks! Thanks for sharing you lovely stay-at-home styles. Stay safe and well. Jacqui x

      Hi Eva! Thank you! That makes me feel younger that I rock something! xx

  20. April 27, 2020 / 2:47 pm

    Love that second top. And your first look. I’m wearing a lot iof shorts these days as it is pretty warm here and I spend the afternoon in my garden.

    • laurie
      April 28, 2020 / 7:51 am

      Yes. I’ve been wearing shorts too Nancy. We were blessed with such good weather last week. I’m back into my jeans now though. Back to normal rainy Uk weather! xx

  21. April 27, 2020 / 2:06 pm

    I am copying that first outfit with items from my closet tomorrow! Really like that white on white. I am really trying to have fun with my closet and shopping a little too. It makes me happy to dress in different outfits each day!

      Dressing up or down, whatever takes our fancy is a small pleasure for us during this lock-down Mireille.. My outfits vary at the moment like a yoyo! xx

    Even if you call it by a different name, wearing your shirt tail out looks sloppy.

    • laurie
      April 28, 2020 / 7:56 am

      Hi Dawn. Oh yes, I agree! Sometimes I love to look “sloppy” and sometimes I like to look elegant and at my best. Whatever the mood takes, I dress how I please. Thank you for taking the time to add your comment.

  23. April 27, 2020 / 7:33 am

    Laurie, all three outfits look fantastic on you! I am especially partial to tops with a square neckline as in your last outfit. They always seem to be flattering. But you don’t see them that often.

    Before Covid-19, I was all about the loungewear when at home, but now that we are nearly always home, I’ve switched it up to a more casual style most days. I have lots of nice clothes, and I am going to wear them, virus or not.

      Hi Michelle. I’m so with you! I think we should dress however the mood takes us. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a lovely positive comment xx
