It has just crept up on me, I have a busy life and its suits me in a practical way

I work full time but its very casual (and cold) so layers work well

how can I get the same comfortable clothes but not quite as boring and a bit more style?

I take the crocs debate on the chin, summer is gone so they will be packed away for next year

what can I change from this comfie list for autumn/winter and be a bit more upmarket

also I don't iron if I can help it

impossible m'thinks but if I don't ask i'll never know

have you any budget? would you wear a skirt?

are you actually in [shudders] leisure wear?

would be willing to pay reasonable amounts

tend to buy good quality jeans, jumpers, polos

and skirts are a no no and have been for about 20 yrs ( mid thirties )

no leisure wear - not an elasticated (sp) band in sight

10-12 clothes size with fairly big norks!!

its been so hectic the last few years, I just haven't had time to think about what I wear

having googled a bit

think knee high brown boots and maybe long skirts is the way to go??

this is a bit beyond me but I shall keep looking

I live in the same sort of stuff.

Last year added just below the knee high brown boots and long (and occasionally short) skirts to the repertoire occasionally. And felt comfortable in it.

Well cut cords, nice light weight jumpers- maybe scoope neck with T hsirt showing undereneath, Converse shoes. Not too big a step!
