Casual



 So today we decided to just head off in the car a wee drive and then call in with the in-laws since Emma had the day of Nursery. What do you wear that's comfy to spend hours in a car but yet still trendy enough that when you do stop to visit that its not a moment of total OMG! What was I thinking!!??
  Something dressy, with nice wedges? But what if Jacob (the baby) starts to cry mid journey and I need to climb into the backseat for a while? Tracksuit? But what if we stop for dinner? Arghhhh!!!! 
 Well my advice for a long car trip with a little sociable coffee with the in-laws is keep it simple. A loose, long jumper with plain legging's and hi-tops, too casual? Yea if you might decide to stop for dinner. Simple some plain make-up and a little jewellery. 
 As for Gary (the hubby), Well he's the one doing the driving so again keeping it simple with some hi-tops, Jeans , T-shirt and a light zip-up Jacket as we were planing to spend most of the day in the car. Then last but not least the kiddies, as much as I love to dress them to impress again as they were going to be in the car I wanted to keep it casual with light Jackets for when we head in to visit, If Jacob is going a long journey I do have to admit with him being so young and being in a car seat, I would normally keep him in a dressy onesie, but as we were hoping to stop for dinner I didn't think it fair. The same for Emma once again loose fitted jeans and a shirt for slouching in the back seat but warm enough incase she decided to head into the garden (as our British weather still isn't great). 
 So this is my take on "Dressy Casual" Hope you enjoyed it, and your feedback is always welcome :) All of the items featured we do own and come very highly recommended by myself and Husband, Also were bought from the stores in the links :)
