If the concept of casual clothes pose difficulty because you only shop for work wear, and you think you have nothing to wear over weekends, my only advice would be to stock up on jeans and "flatform" shoes.  You could easily spice jeans up by wearing it with a blazer without looking to formal, and create a casual look at the same time. My most welcome addition to casualwear apart from jeans, are flat booties. I decided that mid season is most suited to the acquisition of this Camel coloured parka. I matched it with an old pair of chinos, and some animal print for a casual day out. The shoes were not exactly my idea of chic, but considering the fact that fashion had to follow comfort for a day out on the feet, I succumbed to an overbearing pair of flats in a matching print. The extra wide fit was intentional to create some comfort for my left foot which is still in rehabilitation from surgery a year ago, rendering me a little less able to hop around on high heels all day. No need to mention that the procedure was partially required as a result of not having respected the natural form of my feet when buying shoes in earlier days. Funny how we have to endure so much agony before we learn, not so? Saturday took me to the Neighbour goods Market in Woodstock, Cape Town, where your taste buds are tantalised beyond your imagination. I enjoyed having the taste senses stimulated to the extent of saturation! With more than 100 stalls of tasteful delights, it's hard to contain yourself!
