Our ‘Style Not Age’ collective shows what we wear when we are ‘out and about’. In my case, I have been living in casual clothes. I presume most of you have too. In Dublin (Ireland), we have been in and out of various levels of restrictions since last March. We had a brief reprieve for a short time in July and August when we did meet with friends, mostly in outdoor settings. But that was brief. Graham and I decided not to avail of the opportunity to visit restaurants in December and it seems we made the right decision as cases have skyrocketed.
I did try to dress up to go to the shops and we had a few Friday date nights (at home) where I made an effort to get out of the leggings. Highlights in recent months have been trips to get my hair cut and coloured at Crow Street Collective and trips to my dentist at Seapoint. I used these excursions as an opportunity to ditch the leggings!
Most of my socialising has been meeting up with friends for walks or take-away coffees. Recently, a few of us had socially-distanced fish and chips outside wrapped up in big coats and hats. It was too dark for any pics.
CASUAL DRESSING THE NORM
So casual dressing in warm clothes has been very much the norm for the last few months and I am walking miles nearly every day if the volatile Irish weather allows.
My coat and boots were bought in Primark/Penneys last September and the coat is like wearing a blanket. The sweater is from Selected and the camo leggings are from F&F. My cosy hat was a present. The pictures below were taken on a much sunnier afternoon and the colours look completely different. Also I have replaced my walking boots with my Penneys studded boots.
Below you can see what is underneath the coat.

Emma looks so sweet in this cute tartan mini and orange accessories. And, of course, that faux fur jacket is keeping her warm when she’s out and about! For more, see stylesplash.
So yes you can still look stylish and stay warm when you are out and about in December and beyond. Stay safe my friends.
