Me = NOT a fashionista.
The thought of walking around in stilettos and a dress for the ‘fun’ of it makes me cringe.
I’m very girlie in other ways like makeup, hair & stuff but with clothing, comfort comes WAY above all else. I’m so so happy in jeans and a t-shirt or tank top.
Luckily my husband is very casual as well, so he doesn’t expect me to dress up at all. In fact, we were talking the other day (after I had seen some girls walking around in dresses earlier in the day) and I asked him “Do you wish I wore dresses or dressed more girlie?” and he said “No, I don’t like dresses.” Which really surprised me, so I asked why and he said because they look uncomfortable & awkward, especially on a windy day LOL.
I felt better after that 😉

Comfy for sure, I only dress up for special occasions, but I am the same as you do my hair/makeup all cute and rock it with jeans and a t-shirt 🙂

Comfy, comfy, comfy! I like to be in my own personal style, regardless of the mainstream style.

Comfy most of the time. Plus it gets so darn hot here that I can’t really imagine trying to look too pretty in the middle of summer because I will just sweat through my clothes.

I like the look of fashionable, but I’ll usually go for comfortable… I guess a good balance between both is my real goal. 😉

i try to go for something in between… if i am lucky that is. but if i had to pick one of the other it would be comfort!

Comfy! My go to shoes are my tennis shoes, cowboy boots, or flip-flops! And I always wear jeans and a t or tank. Normally a sweatshirt over! very minimal makeup too, powder, blush, mascara, and my hair is either in a pony or bun, or I will sometimes just blow it straight.

I don’t think that fashionable has to be uncomfortable. I like to look cute and put together, but I’m not wearing anything I can’t be in all day.
Today I have on a short khaki skirt with a printed t-shirt & a long thin cardigan. Paired it with leather strappy sandals. It’s casual, but professional enough to wear to work, trendy but not uncomfortable. That’s me. This is my style.

@ egb – I see your point on liking the ‘look’ of fashionable, but even though it looks good, the main thought running through my head is “HOW does she WALK in those?! Man, I bet she gets HORRIBLE blisters and has twisted her ankle more than once.”

Somewhere in between. My style is definitely more casual than super fashion forward – I tend to wear heels only five or so times a month, the rest of the time I’m in ballet flats, boots, or sandals. And I wear jeans and skirts more than dresses, etc.
But I have never been okay with going out in sweatpants, etc. I’ve worn a sweatshirt maybe twice in the past year? I think whether or not my style is casual just depends on what part of the country you live in. In my neighborhood, that’s definitely the casual end of the spectrum. People here tend to dress up a lot, have designer clothes, etc.

usually, I go for fashion, but sometimes no matter how cute you’d like to look, some situations call for comfort…so I’d say I go for fashionably comfortable..is that a word? lol…

I consider my style more fashionable, but comfortable as well. I stick to classic shapes and wear a lot of neutrals, so that I always look pulled together.

I’m all about comfort, all the time. If I’m uncomfortable I’m not having a good time. FI however wishes I wore more skirts, heels, etc. He is totally cool with the way I am… but we have a running joke, whenever he something “hot” but totally uncomfortable he always picks it up and says “Hey… check this out! Looks super comfy right?! Lets pack it up!” heh

That’s awesome you and FI are on the same page!
I USED to love getting dressed up…. and shoes! Oh, the love of shoes.
Now in my mid 30-s – It HURTS to walk in stillettos for an extended period of time.
And, the expensese of home ownership have sucked away my clothes/shoes fund…. so, I’ve turned WAY more casual than I used to be.
I still LOVE getting dressed up for a special occassion, though. 🙂
