Putting together a casual look that works with my style personality is a challenge. I don’t feel comfortable in a hoodie with leggings or jeans and sneakers, but that’s what we often see as a go-to casual look. I believe we can remain true to ourselves, even when dressing for a casual event.
Mr. Mickey took me to the Firehouse on Saturday for lunch. It’s a barbeque place located by the University, so it is has a very casual vibe. We shared a pulled chicken sandwich and steak fries. Sometimes a cold winter day requires more than a salad. After lunch, we stopped at the grocery store. Our temperatures were in the low forties, with high wind, and the sky was overcast, so I had to make these indoor photos work.
Under the category of ‘Use What You Have,’ I am wearing a Covered Perfectly top here, with a five-year-old BCBG Max Azria jacket (similar), a silk twill scarf, and straight leg jeans here. Boots here. Bag here. Similar earrings here.

Your comments indicate that you enjoy seeing how I interpret inspiration while keeping within my budget. The following links are for designer items that inspired the purchase of the things you see me wearing today.
Directions for how I am wearing the scarf follow: Fold a fifty-one-inch square silk twill scarf in half. Pick up the top left corner and the bottom right corner, then place the twisted scarf around your neck and arrange it as you like.
Scarves were the first thing I looked for when I opened my shopping site a few years ago. The site is now closed, but I still have a few of those scarves. Learn more by email. (info@SusanAfter60.com)
