What I wore for a game night at home with friends

My husband and I are not big entertainers — we’re both self-described “high-functioning introverts” — but we do enjoy small get-togethers at home with friends. And we love games, including card games and board games, so we recently had a couple of friends over for a low-key game night. I thought it would make for an interesting post to highlight a typical kind of outfit I wear for such casual get-togethers. (You can also see a post from late last summer, of what I wore for a casual dinner at home with friends.)

The trick for me is to balance being casual and non-fussy but also put-together enough to honor the occasion of welcoming guests. (I’ve written before about this style perspective, and upbringing, of mine — about how what I wear reflects that I care about the situation or people involved.)

My style formula is comfy + classic + a bit of quirk.

I always focus on comfort, which is the primary aspect behind this outfit of stretchy jeans and swingy tunic. It’s classic in that it’s a classic formula of jeans + top + flats. And there’s a bit of quirk in the interesting coral embroidery on the bib of the tunic, plus the sparkly bronze bits of the fold-up flats. These are the Fit in Clouds flats that I won in a giveaway this spring, and they’re perfect for an evening at home with friends!

I don’t like to wear jewelry like rings or watches or bracelets while I’m at home, but dangly beaded earrings are light and not too fussy or fancy for an informal night at home with friends. This pair of beaded earrings was a recent birthday gift from my good friend Stephanie, last seen in a recent monthly budget post.
