Lazy Dressing

Yes, graphically speaking, I’m being corny.

Must be something to do with what I’m wearing.

Are you like me in that, when I don’t know what to wear (I’m clearly a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants person when it comes to clothes), I systemically pull out pieces in Black or Black and White?  For instance, you’ve seen the same top here, earlier in the year. And here too. Thankfully I had the sense to wear different shoes for this third showing. Clearly, there’s a pattern.

Some call it a signature style. Others, safe (afterall, it’s hard to go wrong with Black. Or White. Or the two together).  Me? I call it as it is, and that’s lazy dressing.

I kept the accessories all in the same palatte. It was just easier.

Tell me, what do YOU do on lazy dressing days?  What are your go-to colours/pieces?

Love, Sheela

  1. Hi Sheela, I totally know what you’re talking about. For me right now, it consists of pairing a graphic tee with anything I’m wearing and my tennies. Another item that I can’t seem to get out of is my coveted Wrangler jean shorts. I must start trying a little harder!

    Thank you for linking up to my very first Style Story Link Up!

    Here’s to Lazy Dressing! It works. You look amazing on your laziest of days! Love it!!

    • The items you’ve described, Ann, are so you!! Playful and comfy with a little rock n roll thrown in for good measure 🙂 I need to put in more effort too but it’s just so much easier (and comfier) to wear the same ole same ole. I mean this is my lazy dressing for going out, mind you. When I’m spending the day home, it’s just a raggedy tee shirt which has lost its shape and seen far better days paired with PJ pants or yoga capris. That’s it GRIN let’s both try harder? Once in a while, maybe? xoxo


  2. Hi, I am Ada. Pleasure stopping by. You call this lazy dressing: I call it elegant, chic, modern, edgy and feminine. That skirt and your grid blouse are beautiful and the boots are so much fun, Sheila.

    I welcome you by my blog as well. Thanks and have a great day! Ada. =)

    I just love this top Sheela! Mmm, lazy dressing for me would be staying in my PJs all day long, sadly I can’t go out like that (lol, I wish I could). Lots of love, Kirsten xx



    • Hahahahaha!! That’s the harsh truth where I’m concerned too, Kirsten, this is just me (having to change because I’m) going out. PJs or something else just as comfy. Hair up with a ginormous dino clip xoxo

    Sheela I’m nowhere near as stylish as you on my lazy days – I’m a TRUE lazy dresser in jeans and t-shirt!! This is such a cool, edgy look… as usual the footwear is to. die. for. Your sartorial powers know no bounds!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks so much for linking up with #iwillwearwhatilike – will we see you in pink next week I wonder…?! hehe 😉

    • Catherine, you’ve absolutely no idea how much you’ve just made my day. It’s looking brighter and less icky as only Monday can be 🙂 I’ve admired, nay, worshipped your style for the longest time and to hear such words from you … well, I’m walking on sunshine now!!!! xoxoxo p/s you shall most definitely see me in Molly Ringwald inspired garb today


  5. Lazy dressing is my only kind of dressing! Lately I’ve been drawn to t-shirts and pencil skirts.


    • Right??? Oh wow, pencil skirts and tees, nice contrast. I haven’t worn a pencil skirt in years. I feel so constricted in them somehow. Thank you for stopping by, Laura 🙂


    • You know what, Rachel? I just realised I haven’t worn jeans in 4, 5 years now!! I live in my yoga pants for most off days. So bad, I know.

    This is one chic lazy day outfit! I love how dainty, yet theatrical that skirt is. I think my lazy day outfits are printed dresses or playsuits, as they are an all in one outfit

    Rachel xx



  7. Man I wish I had the grace to class it up on my lazy days like you.
    Instead I pull comfort shit out – leggings, white t, ECCO sneakers.
    BORRRING! I know.
