Styling A Casual Daywear Look

Casual does not mean scruffy. You are not meant to skimp on the quality of your casual daywear pieces as they serve a great purpose in your wardrobe. These days, I am usually in a causal daywear outfit. I haven’t gone partying in years (forgot what that’s about), so casual daywear pieces are all I am about most days of the week. It works for my lifestyle and I believe they are as stylish as other looks.

Here are a few style tips you should bear in mind when styling a casual daywear outfit.

 

Go for quality pieces

Like I said at the start of the post, casual does not mean scruffy. So ensure you go for quality pieces when shopping for or styling a casual daywear look. Cheap pieces do not stand the test of time, and they usually look cheap. It is best to spend a little bit more on clothes that would last more than 1 season.

 

Ensure you get a perfect fit

Casual does not mean you should go for oversize pieces. It is best to nail this look with the right size of garments. If you do like the oversized look, like oversize cardigans/jumpers, ensure you style them with belts and or skinny jeans/leggings to balance up the look.

 

Layers work

I love layering my pieces, especially with the British weather that is up and down. Layering is key when it comes to rocking a casual daywear look. Casual daywear is all about effortless style and layering nails this to a tee. A t-shirt or camisole under a blazer paired with a pair of jeans and scarf would look so stylish. A shirt underneath a waistcoat and jeans would work great too!

Ensure you have the right coat on this winter

A coat has the power to make you stand out for the right or wrong reasons. So it makes sense to pay special attention when picking one. Don’t mess up your look with a shapeless baggy coat. Get your winter coat in the right size and the right style for your outfit. A sleeveless jacket look trendy with a sweater.

 

Get your accessories right

Accessories have the power to make or break any look, so ensure you get your accessories right when styling a casual daywear look. Avoid wearing sparkly jewellery with your casual pieces. It would look too much. Keep your jewellery small and understated so you effortlessly chic.

 

Think Capsule

When shopping for your causal pieces, ensure you go with a shopping list of the pieces you need. Don’t just buy any piece you see. Shop for pieces you need to create various looks. A good way to go about this is to buy 3 colours for a good mix and match wardrobe. So black, white and khaki or blue, cream and khaki. Then you can include some colour into the mix with tops and accessories.

How to get your kids to enjoy reading

I have been reading to the Kiddies since they were tiny babies. I enjoyed reading as a child and I carried my love for reading and writing to adulthood. My kids have tapped into that. They enjoy reading and writing, and now the tables have sort of turned since they now read to me now. I get them to read at least 1 book (most times 2) everyday to me, and I read a book each day with them. The importance of reading to children cannot be overemphasised but yet it is amazing how many parents hardly ever read to their kids.

I know how tricky it can be to fit it all in. As a work from home mum, I have to be very organised to get anything done with my twins. So I know all about how tiring it can be to get hone and open books with kids, but it is something we have to do if we want them to excel in their day to day life. Reading and writing is something we do everyday. We can’t take a day off reading especially, so it is best to develop that skill as early as possible.

 

How to get your kids to enjoy reading

Luckily I don’t struggle in this department as my kids are natural lovers of books but I helped them develop their love for reading. Here are some of the things you can do to help your kids fall in love with reading –

 

Buy them books

The twins have bookshelves each filled with books, and they get regular books every week from school, so they read a lot of different books. I made sure they got age appropriate books from when they were born. This has helped because they discovered books from a very young age. The fact that they read books appropriate ages as also helped their reading.

 

Read to them

Buying books is a waste if you don’t read to your kids, Reading to them on a daily basis helps their development. Putting on different voices also helps capture their attention. My daughter started reading for herself from the age of 3 and has improved over the years, so as my son.

 

Get them involved

Before my kids could read, I got them involved by asking them to pick the books they wanted me to read to them. I also get them involved by asking questions about whatever book we were reading. Now that they read, I get them to pick the books they want to read and I listen while they read.

Reward good reading

If your kids are anything like my twins then they would love rewards. I got my kids potty trained with the help of a sticker charts and Underpants book. I got them to feed themselves with rewards. Anything worth doing, I get them to doing it by rewarding good behaviour. If you struggle to get your kids to read, having a reward chart may help. For every book they read (or attempt to read since looking at picture books does help), you reward. A reward could be big or small, from a new top to a trip to the park.

 

How often do you read to your kids? Do they enjoy reading?
