Casual daytime look...Does it really matter what you wear to run errands? -by Susan from Fifty, Not Frumpy

Note from Pauline Durban, founder and president of Covered Perfectly. As many of you know Susan, from Fifty, not Frumpy is a good friend of mine. I love this lady and she loves her Covered Perfectly tops. This is her most recent review on the Simple Comfort which she had to have! She really captures the beautiful color of this turquoise top, and looks amazing as always!

Casual Daytime Look

Does it really matter what you wear to run errands.
It never fails. If you go out looking less than your best, you will see someone you know. I was working on a project at my house a few years ago and in the middle of the project, I realized I needed something from the hardware store. Without giving it a second thought, I pulled on a denim shirt over my white tee and khaki pants. I think I was also wearing some sort of tennis shoes and the pants probably bunched up on top of them. I was likely not wearing much makeup if any. Not a pretty picture!
While at the hardware store, I saw a pal from high school whom I hadn't seen for a couple of years. The last time I ran into him I was looking much closer to my best. When he recognized me, his face took on a look of deep concern. He asked if I had been unwell. I assured him that all was well with me and then finished my transaction as quickly as possible.
Lesson learned! If I don't want to frighten small children I need to tidy up a bit each day!
All kidding aside, I do shower, put on at the least a little makeup and dress in something comfortable but still flattering each day. I do this for myself even when I am staying home alone. I feel more outgoing, positive and confident when I am dressed for human interaction.
I was shopping at my local Belk department store yesterday when I got a call from Mr. Mickey. He happened to be in the area so he stopped by to snap these photos for you.
Halfway through the morning, I had removed that heavy outer coat. The J.Jill cashmere cardigan over the turquoise blue Covered Perfectly simple comfort top was enough layering for most of the day.
At this time of year, our temperatures may vary as much thirty or more degrees in one day. Dressing in layers is the best chance we have of being comfortable for the whole day. If the sunshine had warmed us even more, I could have worn the cardigan over my shoulders for another look I really like.
I wear these tops from Covered Perfectly often because they are so comfortable. They are made from an elegant MicroModal fabric that launders beautifully and falls right back into shape when you hang them to dry. They are perfect for layering since they don't add any bulk at all.
I will be wearing this new top during the warmer seasons as well because I love the color so much! FNF9
