Versatile Sportswear


As I have not had too much time to share style posts, I thought that I would share with you a look that I wore weeks ago. Also, a massive "thank you" goes out to you dear readers for the overwhelmingly lovely birthday messages, comments, and wishes.

For this outfit, I needed to change quickly into something presentable right after working out, however I didn't need to be fancy or anything. My only destination was meeting a friend for coffee after a long work day and a gym session. I swapped my clutch for a utility messenger bag and my heels for a more sportier shoe, a colourful running cross-trainer! Comfort and style was the overall tone that I was going for.

I changed into this linen utility skirt that I have actually had for a couple of years, then added a cardigan knit that I designed and sewed many years ago. Therefore, much of this outfit is a considerable amount of remixing versatile pieces that I've not worn in quite some time.

There you have it, an easy transition for casual wear. For me, versatility is everything these days!

    Hiya doll!! You look great. I think sometimes outfits that can be versatile and easy are needed! Sometimes when I have school runs and errands to do, I wear sneakers with my dresses, so I can zoom on by and get things done and then back again. It is needed. I hope you have a wonderful week to come doll :)) xx

    Did you make the cardigan yourself? That's really impressive :D I love the look. I've not worn trainers casually for a decade (excluding Converse) so it's like a breath of fresh air. Thank you for the inspiration. Have a lovely week! xxx

  22. Thanks Mira, lol. It's tough at times, but glad that I can manage it all. :-)

  23. It's a great outfit Madison. It's simple, comfortable, yet looks pulled together. Love your sneakers!

  24. Happy belated birthday :)
    I like your outfit as always. The bag is super lovely. I want one like that too :) xxx

  25. You know, Madison, I haven't been totally convinced by the sneaker trend... and then I saw this look. It's so perfectly put together, I wouldn't even have realised that you were wearing sneakers if you hadn't mentionned it! That's what I call truly mixing comfort and style :)

  26. I really love the cut and the colour of the cardigan! So great that you made this yourself.


    Great shade of blue.
    I always carry a bag very simila when I travel
